Gary Condit (D-Ceres) in the two-month-old investigation of Chandra Levy's disappearance--while one of Condit's longtime Democratic House colleagues lashed out at the congressman's conduct.

Rep. Gary A. Condit signaled his willingness to be interviewed a fourth time by authorities investigating the disappearance of former federal intern Chandra Levy.

The FBI declined Friday to rule on the validity of a privately arranged polygraph test that indicates Rep. Gary A. Condit had no involvement in Chandra Levy's disappearance. The bureau's decision effectively means that authorities will not accept Condit's test results.

Almost from the start, the now 11-week-old saga of the missing intern and the congressman from California has caused fits for Gary A. Condit's fellow lawmakers. This week, what already was a difficult situation became more awkward after Condit's apparent admission--during a third interview with police--of a romantic relationship with Chandra Levy. For many elected officials, some of whom had been assured privately by the Ceres Democrat that no affair had occurred, the revelation was troubling.

After two days of interviews with a flight attendant who claimed an affair with Rep. Gary A. Condit, federal investigators Thursday expanded their probe into Chandra Levy's disappearance to examine whether the congressman attempted to obstruct justice, law enforcement authorities said.

In the now-daily tumult that is the story of missing federal intern Chandra Levy, Jim Murphy watches and waits. Murphy, executive producer of "The CBS Evening News," has made waves himself this week, as a sober arbiter of news begging off a story that most media outlets--from major daily newspapers to nightly network news shows--can't resist.
