Former congressman Gary Condit wins money and apology

Sponsored by:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) __ Former congressman Gary Condit has won an undisclosed sum of money and an apology over claims about his role in the 2001 disappearance of intern Chandra Levy. Both Fox News and The Sacramento Bee are reporting Condit has reached a settlement with writer Dominick Dunne, a special correspondent to Vanity Fair.

In a statement, Dunne said he did “not say or intend to imply that Condit was complicit” in the disappearance of intern Chandra Levy. He apologized if his comments were “misinterpreted.” Condit had argued Dunne´s statements led (m) millions of people to believe he was criminally involved in Levy´s death and contributed to his loss in the March 2002 primary election. Police never described Condit as a suspect.
