Contrary

Chandra Levy

I recently asked two liberal friends “Who killed Chandra Levy?” I was referring, of course, to the 24-year-old congressional intern who went missing in DC in the summer of 2001 after a morning jog. (A dog-walker discovered her remains over a year later.)

One friend responded, “That Democratic congressman she was seeing.” The other answered “Gary Condit”–referring to the same person. This is the middle-aged, married man with whom Levy had been having an affair. When I told them the truth–that an illegal alien from El Salvador, Ingmar Guandique, was arrested last year for her murder–my friends were shocked and speechless. They, like most Americans, were glued to their television screens in 2001. And yet there was practically a media blackout when Guandique was arrested.

Why wasn’t the closure of Chandra’s murder splashed all over the airwaves? Could it be because Guandique, already convicted for assaulting two other joggers, didn’t fit the rosy media picture of the undocumented as the victimized? I imagine that if the suspect were a white conservative, his identity would have been emblazoned in the headlines for weeks.

But liberals and the media don’t want the public to consider the full story about illegal immigrants. Obama and his allies need us to believe that all illegals are like that kindly maid or the congenial, hard-working gardener.

  1. Makes me feel sorry for Gary Condit. I always wondered about him. The guy looked good for it but he had no history of violence or a wild temper at all.

  2. Yeah, he had that sleazy “used car salesman” look and I assumed he was the killer. I was surprised when it turned out that he wasn’t the one.
