Apparently matters have
escalated for Gary Condit passed the point where Joseph Cotchett can do him much good from San Francisco. Condit has now retained veteran DC Democratically lawyer Abbe Lowell to represent him. You may remember Lowell as Chief Counsel for the House Judiciary Committee during Impeachment or more recently as Bob Torricelli's criminal attorney.
Lowell will apparently hold a news conference later today.
Cotchett, according to the Condit folks, is being kept on to handle the media. I'll let that one speak for itself.
