    Default Dominique Strauss-Kahn

    The news was kind of hard to miss. But it still isn't clear what happened.

    These are the formal allegations

    And here is some more background.

    From what I heard yesterday, he allegedly has an alibi (at least that's what his lawyers claim) and wasn't even in the hotel room at the time of the supposed rape. Also, with him being a celebrity and having stayed at the hotel, it's not really suprising the housekeeper could identify him in the lineup. A lot of people had a strong interest in getting rid of that guy and the timing is almost too perfect.

    On the other hand, he does have quite a history of harassing women. And attempting a rape at a time and place like that and in that manner is so idiotic it might be a sign of a mental health issue.


    So far, the results of the DNA tests aren't in yet, his alibi isn't proven yet and there are no witnesses, so it is his word against hers.


    So what do you think? Guilty or innocent? A slandered politician or an ageing womanizer finally crossing the line into violent and criminal behavior?

    Right. That's why it's the perfect moment for wild guesswork and speculation.
    I'm curious which side will have more supporters: the lynch mob or the conspiracy theorists.

    I imagine he can afford a whore in his times of need. I imagine there are even whores willing to play a rape scene if that is what gets him off. The supposed scenario sounds so stupid that I have difficulty believing it.

    Strauss-Khann is a multi recidivist rapist and deserve to be in jail.

    eh Not really surprised... he did (supposedly) what the IMF has done to numerous countries for decades.


    I wonder if Sarkosy has a better chance of being elected in France now, or will someone take Strauss-Kahn's place for the Socialists... Maybe Martine Aubry? or Arnaud Montebourg??? Would be interesting to see how it turn outs.

    Guilty or innocent, his political chances are probably fucked, which in turn means the socialists in France might be fucked, which in turn pisses me off.

    How did this thread get so far without this? You all must be far more mature than I am.
