Is he proud, Stupid or just being Arrogant?
Strauss-Kahn offered the following explanation: “Yes, I love women, so what? … For years we talk about giant pictures of orgies, but I’ve never seen anything out … Let’s show them!”
He imagined a scenario in which a woman is paid off to play the role of a victim of a purported assault: “A woman that he would have raped in a parking lot and to whom half a million or a million euros would be promised to make up such a story.” He then details a men’s room run-in with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, in which Strauss-Kahn pressured Sarkozy to stop “throwing dirt on his private life.”
As for problems his money and faith may have caused with the French electorate, he said that he’ll never need because of his vast fortune. When it comes to his Jewish faith, he claimed that a quotation attributed to him and circulated on the web was already causing problems for him.
The IMF chief, a man accustomed to luxury hotel suites and first-class plane travel, will make his home for now at New York City’s notorious Rikers Island jail. Strauss-Kahn will be transferred from a detention center attached to the Manhattan Criminal Court to Rikers Island on Monday, a spokesman for the New York City Department of Correction said.
Strauss-Kahn is due to appear in court again on May 20. The judge’s denial of bail was made on the basis of whether Strauss-Kahn was a perceived flight risk. “This is a big blow for the
defense’s case of course.” “But this is very much a he-said, she-said at the moment. The defense lawyer said they have someone who was having lunch with Strauss-Kahn at the time he was allegedly assaulting the maid,” she added. Ryan Sesa, a police deputy spokesman, said charges against Strauss-Kahn included a “criminal sexual act, unlawful imprisonment and attempted rape”. He is accused of trapping a maid at a luxury hotel in Manhattan and sexually assaulting her. The woman, who has not been identified, picked Strauss-Kahn out of a line-up on Sunday, as police said they had won a warrant to seek DNA evidence on his clothes.
Another assault accusation
A French writer on Monday also said she would make a complaint against the IMF chief, claiming he assaulted her in 2002. Tristane Banon, a novelist and journalist, previously made the allegation against the leading politician in 2007 – on television and in an interview with a news website – but she had not made a formal complaint to authorities.
“When the He said, She said story gets said, I suppose we will know what was said, and who said it! But, when we hear what was said, will it be said, that what they said, was said in a Court of Law?” Hotdogfish!
