There is something that is not right about this. For starters there is no accident about what gets into the press. Secondly, this became an overnight scandal. The woman was attacked and the next day this makes into the press. This reminds me of the Giffords shooting when Palin was blamed for it out of nowhere.

The last few sentences of the article implies he was either set up or lured into a sting for ulterior motives. With as much as politicians get away with, this is too easy. Notice also that he was going to be the “socialist” nominee for French president.

Here is the quote:
“ If found guilty of the attack at the Sofitel Hotel, Strauss-Kahn faces up to 15 years in prison, while his political and financial career already appears ruined.”

In other words if he is innocent the damage has been done.

Maybe, but I stand by my ‘typical politician’ remark.

The German newspaper der Welt said that Tristane Banon told of the rape (occurring when she was 22) in a television interview in 2007, but the television station beeped out Strauss- Kahn’s name so the viewers didn’t know who it was. He mother was a members of the Socialist Party and talked her daughter into keeping quiet. The mother now says she regrets that decision.
