WASHINGTON — Chandra Levy’s parents found little solace in Rep. Gary Condit’s admission that he had an affair with their missing daughter and will ask him to take a polygraph test because they doubt that he has disclosed all he knows, a spokesman for the family said Sunday.
"The family wants the comfort of knowing that the people who were closest to Chandra are giving complete and truthful information to investigators," said Michael Frisby, a spokesman for Robert and Susan Levy and their attorney, Billy Martin.
Police said Sunday that investigators were satisfied that Condit answered all the questions asked in their most recent interview Friday, in which sources say he disclosed a romantic relationship with Levy. And an attorney for the congressman said Condit "has told the police everything."
Frisby said Condit, a California Democrat who represents the Levys’ home town of Modesto, has provided conflicting accounts of when he last spoke to Chandra Levy. Frisby said Condit told Susan Levy in a meeting June 21 that he was last in touch with her daughter April 24 or 25. Two days later, law enforcement sources have said, he told police that he had last spoken to Levy on April 29.
The Levys also believe Condit has hindered the investigation by taking weeks to disclose to investigators that he was having an affair with the 24-year-old former federal Bureau of Prisons intern. The congressman was interviewed by police for a third time Friday night, and two sources familiar with the 90-minute meeting said Condit — who is married and has two grown children — reversed a denial that his aides had maintained since soon after the intern went missing after April 30.
A source representing Condit, who was familiar with the meeting between Susan Levy and Condit, said that if there seemed to be a discrepancy in the dates Condit provided about his last contact with Chandra Levy, it was because Condit was referring to the most recent time he spoke to Levy in person, not by phone.
Police are investigating the disappearance as a missing persons case. They say they have no suspects because they don’t have any evidence that a crime has been committed.
