A former congressional intern reportedly says she, too, was a victim of inappropriate sexual contact by now-retired Rep. John Conyers, saying Conyers even claimed during that encounter to have “inside information” on then-missing federal intern Chandra Levy.
Courtney Morse, 36, described the incident from 16 years ago to The Washington Post. She said Conyers, D-Mich., mentioned the Levy case when Morse was a college intern for him and the congressman drove her home one night.
Morse said Conyers wrapped his hand around hers while it was in her lap and said he was interested in a sexual relationship, the newspaper reported.
Levy went missing in 2001. A police investigation revealed she was having an affair with married California Democratic Rep. Gary Condit.
Conyers "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 told The Post. “I got out of the car and ran.”
Fox News made several attempts Wednesday to contact Conyers lawyer Arnold Reed for comments.
