Ian Conyers, a MI state senator, said his uncle plans to make a formal announcement at 10 a.m. on the Mildred Gaddis radio show.

Brown, 61, later publicly identified herself as filing the complaint and said the congressman propositioned her for sex multiple times over more than a decade.

The state senator, who has been in office for about a year, said he had planned to run for re-election next year for his current statehouse seat but would give up that race to run for his great-uncle's seat in Washington.

Elisa Grubbs said that the congressman put his hand up her skirt and rubbed her thighs while sitting in the front row of a church.

Conyers flew home to his district last week and checked into the hospital for what a family consultant said was stress.

Last month, BuzzFeed News reported that Conyers had settled a complaint in 2015 from a woman who alleged she was sacked because she rejected his sexual advances.

The rally at the Hartford Memorial Baptist Church on James Couzens in Detroit comes as some members of the media and Congress have called for Conyers to resign.

Conyers' attorney Arnold Reed told the Detroit Free Press Grubbs' allegations are "another instance of tomfoolery from the mouth of Harvey Weinstein's attorney".

Conyers was rushed to a hospital just as a former aide broke her silence for the first time and spoke on the record about her accusations Conyers sexually harassed her. In the political world, it's never that simple.

Conyers, the longest-serving active member of the House, left Washington last Tuesday amid reports that some other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, which he co-founded, were urging him to resign to protect his legacy as a civil rights icon. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said he should resign, calling the allegations against him "serious, disappointing and very credible".

The House Ethics Committee has opened an investigation of Conyers, 88, after he said his office had resolved a harassment case with a payment but no admission of guilt. Conyers has denied wrongdoing. He has already stepped aside from his position as ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Reed has said Conyers' health would be the paramount consideration in whether he decides to step down from his House seat.
