Former congressman Gary Condit speaks to talkshow host Dr. Phil about the Chandra Levy murder. Rough Cut - no reporter narration.
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Gary Condit, the former congressman who had an extramarital affair with Washington intern Chandra Levy before her 2001 murder, opened up to Dr. Phil in an upcoming episode of the popular talkshow. In a clip from the episode which will be broadcast on Thursday (October 27), Condit tells Dr. Phil that Chandra visited his condominium. "I saw her one time outside the office at a restaurant and she came by my condo," he says. "I want to make this clear, there's nothing unusual about someone coming by my condo, a lot of people did. So, you know, people had made some speculation about that meaning something special," he added. The disappearance of Levy, 24, in May 2001 and the subsequent investigation transfixed Washington, fueled by revelations that she had been having an affair with Condit, a married Democrat from California. Levy's skeletal remains were found the following year in a District of Columbia park where it was believed she had gone running. Condit was cleared by police. The sensational media coverage surrounding the case contributed to Condit's primary election loss in 2002.
