Condit Controversy Taking Toll

Gary Condit´s constituents think he is doing a good job but many won´t vote for him again. The
controversy over his alleged relationship with missing intern Chandra Levy may be taking a toll. A San Jose Mercury News poll released today found 77
percent like Condit´s work in Congress. More than a third of those polled in his district think he should resign, and nearly 60 percent say they won´t support
the Modesto Democrat if he seeks re-election next year. Many respondents said they aren´t troubled by Condit´s alleged affairs but rather by allegations he
tried to withhold information from authorities.

Newsweek magazine says there´s new evidence that Gary Condit did not have a hand in Chandra
Levy´s disappearance. Law enforcement sources quoted by the magazine say Vice President Cheney can provide what amounts to an alibi for the California
congressman. The two had a noontime meeting May first, right about the time the young intern was last heard from. Investigators say she was surfing the Web
on her computer until about one p-m that day. She hasn´t been heard from since.
