Chandra Levy murder conviction may be overturned due to questionable witness
zap2it ^

Posted on 01/26/2013 3:06:32 AM PST by SMGFan

Twelve years after her disappearance, and the case of Chandra Levy still hasn't reach it's conclusion. The 24-year-old Capitol Hill intern was last seen in May 2001. Following the disappearance, her family disclosed to police that she had been having an affair with U.S. Representative Gary Condit.

When Condit was unwilling to cooperate with investigators, speculation arose that he was behind the disappearance. While he was never charged, it completely derailed his political career.

The man who was eventually charged in her death, Ingmar Guandique, was convicted in 2010 with no physical evidence linking him to the crime. However, two other women came forward, claiming he had also attacked them in the same park where Levy's remains were found. Additionally a jailhouse informant claims that Guandique confessed the murder to him.

How involved was Condit with Chandra?

No one really knows about the true involvement angle. My guess is that Chandra did meet Condit on that fateful day...had a liaison, and then she left to accidentally run into the actual killer later at the park. The curious thing here is that if she hadn’t been killed that day...she would have moved up and now be a office manager for some Senator.

There are some of us, who don’t know who she is.

Or what this is about.

It was a big news story through Summer 2001. But dropped off the news focus after 9/11.

The happiest man in the United States on 9-11-2001 was U.S. Representative Gary Condit. The media hounded creepy Condit relentlessly throughout the summer.

Since Gary Condit and his missing mistress were the biggest 2001 news stories through Sept. 10, it would behoove you to do your own research on the topic.

Miss Levy was a pretty young woman. Conditt’s “promising political career” was sunk by the scandal. Now, as Bill Clinton becomes more and more an “icon”, it would be a badge of honor in the criminal enterprise known as the Democrat Party.

Condit looks like one of those quiet, violent persons. IIRC, he also had a record from his youth which was sealed and/or had disappeared.

The most interesting item I remember is that someone had phoned in a clue....the day before they were suppose to search the area where Chandra was eventually found.

Never thought the guy in jail was guilty. Why???....two living witnesses say he's not a killer, just a predator.

I think it was clear how involved they were. I believe Chandra told her Aunt Linda about the affair several times over a long period of time (although she may not have “named names”, just his title or position).

On 9/11/01 around 9:00 a.m., his story became a non-story. Still, it put an end to his career.

Some think that the ordeal put the fear of God into others in DC politics — Condit’s friends — and some left public service soon after, opting for private sector positions.

I believe Condit and half his family were soon back collecting Political paychecks. It's not like he lost his pension anyways.

Campaigned as "The Family Man". Right!!!

Kinky is right.

Condit's new girlfriend probably looks like Casey Kasem.

There’s a guy sitting in jail on charged trumped-up by the communist DNC operatives currently enjoying their tyrannical rule.

They blame him for Benghazi.

Should we doubt that Condit figured out a way to pin this on someone else?

Yes, and Scarborough also had his own dead intern to explain away around that time.

Thank you Nauti. At least there is still some here at FR who weren’t in diapers in 2000 and have the balls to tell these guys to do some research before they open their puerile mouths.

This may be another scam. This time to remove all involvement
from Condit, so he can get back in the game.

The other big story of early 2001 that was somewhat suppressed at the time, but totally dropped off after 9/11, was the Cincinnati Race Riots. A lot of the FR pages don’t load any more (or didn’t last time I looked), but you can put the URLs in the Wayback Machine and they come up. I have a bunch of those threads marked on my FR links page.

That event is what really, really opened my eyes to just how really, really bad Lamestream Media reporting is, since we were getting on the scene reports here, and mostly crickets and whitewash from there.

The events in Cincy also foreshadowed various wilding and knockout game events we’ve come to see in recent years.

A tangent from the subject of the thread, but it is sometimes interesting to look at what got completely knocked off the radar by 9/11. I like to think vote fraud is another.

Never believed guy in jail did it. Always believed Gary Condit had a hand in it; either he bumped her off or hired someone to do it. Think Condit got away with murder.

“When you play the game of kings, you play with your head as a wager.” — a professor of history

The corridors of power have always been risky, even before the time of the Roman Empire. And while history remembers the principle players, it is their lieutenants, their hangers on, mistresses, lickspittles, spies, bum-boys, toadies, ‘liaisons dangerous’, and family members who are most often the ante to the game.

Each player is surrounded by such people, and they each represent a facet of their character, or lack thereof.

And they are seen as expendable by everyone but the player, and sometimes by the player himself. Thus acts against them, while serious, are below the level of vendetta, and are done as often as not to send a message.

Such people are seen as volunteers, who could have left at any time, but have chosen to stay, so it is their own fault.

IIRC, Condit was into some real kinky stuff, leather bars, etc.

Indeed he was into kinky stuff, and so were another 20 or so members of Congress and Senate who were in his little group sex club. I’m broad minded but the stuff these guys were into was just flat dark and twisted.

More than kinky and twisted enough to get a girl killed.

One of the other women involved who was a stewardess went public right after Levy went missing because she figured Levy was murdered to cover up for the club and that she was next on the hit list. She may have been right so no matter how embarassing going public was for her, she is still alive to this day.

When you see strange things going on in Congress, think about those 20 guys and how a combination of threat of blackmail and the carrot on the stick of having special interests procuring women and men for their “special interests” and activities could coerce votes that are not necessarily in the best interests of the American People.

FWIW those 20 guys in Condit’s club made up 4% of the House and Senate’s combined membership.

Probably would be. My uncle was one of the first deaths in the war. My father also served, and by the way, had never been on an airplane until his trip to Japan. He was scared to death!

A good friend of mine was a Republican senator in a Democrat-controlled state. He would not go out socially unless his wife could accompany him and he would not accept any refreshments that was prepared for him. He knew how easy it was to be set up...a drugged drink, a naked girl or boy, a photograph. Presto! A controlled senator.
