Report: Chandra Levy-linked ex-congressman Gary Condit writing tell-all book

By Matt DeLong

Just in time to ride the wave of national attention surrounding the Chandra Levy murder trial, a spokesman for former Rep. Gary Condit (D-Calif.) told AOL News that the ex-congressman has a tell-all book in the works.


"I've read it. I think it's one of the most dramatic stories I've read," said Condit's attorney and spokesman, Bert Fields, whose safe holds the tantalizing manuscript -- Condit's account of his drama after being linked to intern Chandra Levy. "It's a Shakespearean drama."

Condit's career ended when he lost his 2002 bid for reelection after news surfaced that he had been romantically involved with Levy, then his intern an intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons from Condit's district, before she disappeared the previous year. Levy's remains were found in a Washington park.

While Condit was dogged by a whisper campaign about his possible involvement, he was never named as a suspect by police. In 2009, an Salvadorean illegal immigrant named Ingmar Guandique was arrested and charged with Levy's murder. Jury selection for Guandique's trial began Monday. Assistant U.S. Attorney Fernando Campoamor-Sanchez said Condit may be called as a witness in the trial.

Fields said the manuscript will not be shopped around until after the trial ends, but the book will be "very frank."

"He is in the process of finishing the book and it will talk about everything that happened," Fields said. "Right now we're not showing the book to anyone. No publisher has seen it. He feels strongly the book should not come out while this trial is pending.

A "tell-all book" by a two-bit politician whose only claim to fame is his involvement in a sex and murder scandal? Ewww. No, thanks!

"If I did her"

A tell-all?

When has anyone ever written a tell-all about themselves? He boffed an intern and she ended up dead. Is there more to tell about this that wasn't on the front page of the Post?

Check your clips. Chandra never worked for Condit, but was an intern at the Bureau of Prisons. How they met is unclear, since Condit denied a relationship with the woman to the police -- a lie that persuaded the police he was involved somehow. But according to some versions, she met him while doing constituent work for her BOP clients, or met him while visiting a school friend who worked in his office.

From what I read, he started this book in 2009 BEFORE this guys was arrrested and has withheld publication because of the trial. It's interesting that the WP keeps pimping their book and material of the trial (and keep getting things wrong, look at the edit above), and then acuse this guy of doing what they did. Has Condit said a word? I don't think so. Will be interesting to see what he says.

Hey!
She wasn't HIS intern. She was an intern at the Bureau of Prisons.
That's what I remember. I know she was at BoP.

Will the name of it be "If I did it"?

Seems like a page out of the OJ Simpson playbook.
