We don’t even really know that Gary Condit was having an affair with Chandra Levy, let alone knows anything about her disappearance. But if double-talk were punishable under the DC code they would have carted him off weeks ago. As noted here yesterday the DC police have been asking for a second interview with Condit for almost two weeks now. And yesterday the congressman released this statement:
I met with police officials as soon as Chandra Levy was reported missing and answered their questions … I have spoken with police again, and have reached out to Miss Levy’s parents. If there is any new information I can provide, I will do so without hesitation.
But according to the police, the second meeting Condit appears to be referring to must be nothing more than a phone call.
According to ABC News, police went to Condit’s condo on June 13th but were turned away because it was “not a good time.” They went to his Capitol Hill office on Monday the 18th but were told he was out of town.
According to the Post, investigators then tried to set up interviews with Condit on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, each time without success. They plan to try again today.
Now one thought which has occurred to me is that things are really heating up on the Patients’ Bill of Rights front. And maybe Condit just can’t manage to break free? Maybe the cops should talk to Gephardt and see if they can him to free up some time for Condit to talk?
