DEATH THREAT? Conyers Invoked Chandra Levy When Intern Rejected His Advances
In a jaw-dropping new accusation against disgraced former Rep. John Conyers, a former intern claims that he brought up Chandra Levy when she rejected his sexual advances.
Levy was an intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons when she was murdered in 2002. After her remains were found in a DC park a year after she vanished, it was discovered that she had been having an affair with California Congressman Gary Condit, a married Democrat.
Speaking to the Washington Post, accuser Courtney Morse claimed that Conyers “drove her home from work one night, wrapped his hand around hers as it rested in her lap, and told her he was interested in a sexual relationship.”
When she rejected his advances, he claimed to have “insider information” on the death of Levy.
“He said he had insider information on the case. I don’t know if he meant it to be threatening, but I took it that way,” Morse said.
Morse was so spooked by his comments that she exited the car and ran. She also quit her paid internship.
When the Hill covered this story, they falsely labeled Conyers as a Republican. After being called out by multiple people on social media, they quietly corrected the report without explanation.
