Wife: Gary Never Slept With Levy

not

The surprising declaration from Carolyn Condit comes despite the fact that the disgraced pol told investigators more than a year ago that he and Levy were bedmates, sources have said. 

"The out-there people, they have said Gar has had an affair. And it's all just ludicrous, it's just so blown up," Carolyn Condit tells the September issue of Esquire. 

"It's like they're talking about two people that aren't even us. I mean, Gar and I were kids together." 

In July 2001, after ducking the issue of whether he had sex with Chandra, Condit finally confessed in an interview with investigators to a long-running affair with the former intern, who had vanished two months earlier, sources have said. 

His wife says the American public is bent on destroying his career, based on lies and rumors supposedly tying him to Chandra's murder. 

"They took this healthy, gorgeous man and put an IV in him and drained him of everything - just took his heart out and stomped on it," she says."I never felt for one minute that Gary did this or that. Never once. 

"And I don't think I'm naive. I don't think I have a cover over my head." 

Levy's remains turned up May 22 in a Washington, D.C., park. 

Carolyn Condit tells Esquire the police were "just so invasive. They were so vindictive. It was just like: How can you do this to a guy who wouldn't hurt a flea? 

"It just gives me goose bumps to think about it. The helicopters, The lie-detector test. The searching of our apartment. 

"I mean, we stood right there while they were searching. 

"And they just glared in your eyes and ripped open our closets like they were gonna find just horrid stuff. And they even hooked this gadget up to our sink." 

Carolyn insists she'll stick with her man.
