Sponsored by:

The wife of California Congressman Gary Condit has sued the publisher and parent company of the tabloid magazine the Star. Carolyn Condit claims the magazine made libelous statements in a cover story that could injure her reputation. She´s seeking $15 million. In the suit filed in Fresno federal court, Condit says the falsehoods include that she threatened to kill herself, trashed the family house and sought counseling because of her husband´s relationship with former federal intern Chandra Levy. The magazine´s spokesman, Gerald McKelvey, says he has not seen the suit and can´t comment on it. Levy´s skeletal remains were found May 22nd in a Washington D-C park and her death was ruled a homicide. Her killer has never been captured. Condit reportedly told police he and Levy were having an affair. Police do not consider him a suspect in her death.
