For those whove followed

For those who’ve followed the Condit case closely this is likely the most revealing passage from the congressman’s letter to his constituents.

Some suggest that not talking with the media could mean I had something to do with Chandra’s disappearance. I did not. I pray that she has not met the same fate as the other young women who have disappeared from the same neighborhood.

— Gary Condit
Aug. 22nd
Letter to Constituents

This sounds a bit like he’s looking for the real killers. Perhaps it’s just because I live in the aforementioned neighborhood and thus feel oddly defensive about this. But it’s important to keep in mind that there is not the slightest bit of evidence that Levy’s disappearance is connected to the disappearances of two other young women in the DuPont Circle neighborhood during the late nineties. In fact there is plenty of evidence pointing to their not being related.

This is just a canard, pure and simple.

P.S. By the way, if you can’t wait to read the People Magazine article, here it is.
