Following in the footsteps of Democrat Bill Clinton, Gary Condit, also a Democrat, seems to be an incorrigible liar. The Washington Post reports that, in a pretrial deposition as part of a defamation suit he filed against Vanity Fair columnist Dominick Dunne, Condit denied having a "romantic relationship" with Chandra Levy.
Anyone who has followed the original story in the newspapers knows they were having a sexual relationship. And that some of the sex was pretty kinky. Not that there's anything wrong with kinky sex.
The inconsistency was pointed out by the article:
privately, he told investigators that he had an affair with Levy, law enforcement sources familiar with the case reiterated yesterday.
Condit's testimony drew a sharp rebuke from Chandra Levy's aunt. Linda Katz, formerly Linda Zamsky, has said that Levy told her about a love affair with Condit.
"I don't know what he's hiding. . . . I only know he lied," Katz said.
