Posted on 05/18/2011 8:10:17 AM PDT by La Lydia
Not only does Dominique Strauss-Kahn have to worry about a possible prison sentence, but now he also has reason to be concerned about coming into contact with the HIV/AIDs virus. The alleged victim of the IMF chief's sexual assault lives in a Bronx apartment rented exclusively for adults with HIV or AIDS.
The hotel maid is a West African immigrant, and has occupied the fourth floor of the building with her 15-year-old daughter since January. Before that, she had lived in another apartment since 2008 that was set aside by Harlem Community AIDS United for adults with the virus and their families.
At least one adult in the household must be HIV-positive or have AIDS to qualify for the apartment, and infected children are not eligible. Deductive logic indicates that the woman very likely was infected, although we cannot ascertain this for sure due to medical confidentiality laws.
The woman's lawyer, Jeffrey Shapiro, as well as a close family friend said that she is a widow and lives alone with her daughter...

Word of the day: being a rapist increases risk of contracting HIV. As if we didn’t know that.
He has no common sense, just rampant arrogance, and thinks he owns the world and everyone in it.
What a blatant smear job.
I heard this today: “Dude be havin’ a bad week.”

32 year old muslim widow with a 15 yr. old daughter
First she called her brother, oops, a friend.
She said she was told the room was empty, then she ‘thought’ the room was empty.
She said her forced her to give him oral sex, after claiming she was raped.
She says, who does he think he is. Oh, I had no idea who he was.
Reminds me of Chrystal Magnum and Anita Hill
Time will tell if she has to get on the witness stand we’ll get to know more about her.
Karma is sometimes slow, but always interesting...................
Always look for ways to blame the victim, eh?
And with the forced nature of the (alleged) attacks, the probability of blood contact becomes much higher.
Talk about a deal gone sour. Maybe he was trying to commit suicide.
In this instance, the man is purported to have a history of similar things. The maid could not have easily known who or what this man was...............
The truth will come out in the trial. At this point what passes for news, is no better than tabloid trash.
In NYS, the rape victim’s identify is protected by the Rape Shield Law. And HIV/AIDS status is also to be totally confidential. Interesting that in 2 days, it’s all come out..obviously leaked...and no doubt from the defense..they are trying desperately to influence public opinion and shape the jury pool..which won’t work..
HIV apartments? Who knew that queers and junkies (90+% of the AIDS carriers) had special quarters reserved for them? At public expense, no doubt!
Just can’t get that ol’ “Give-a-Damn” motor started.
I sometimes hear about forced oral sex; why do I never hear about anything being bitten off?
I think they made a Broadway Musical about that.
I wonder how much it costs the Sugar Daddy taxpayers to support this “West African immigrant”.
Ya, I’m surprised there are public housing apartments for people with HIV/AIDS. Who knew?
But, isn’t that separate but equal? Shouldn’t they be in regular section 8 housing with everyone else?
Picked the wrong week to quit raping
“Actions/Consequences”:Do you mean like voting for Obama?
This is a sensitive subject. But probably, in forced oral sex, the victim is afraid of being strangled if he/she uses the teeth. Just saying, that fear could prevent them from thinking of something like that as a means of fighting back.
“I Asked You Not To Call Me Shirley”!

The maid may not know who he is/was...but she knows one thing....he has lotsa money.
And she is living in an HIV apartment because??
Of course. That's why we bother to have trials in the first place. Up to that point it's all speculation. I'm not "convinced" either.
If they find her DNA on him, or vice versa, that will pretty much seal his fate. And if the housekeeper is lying, that will be easy to determine too.
Nevertheless, given that he has a history of such actions, until that information is available, Occam's Razor suggests that he likely was at it again.
I agree! Sounds plausible!
You have to figure out who the victim is, before you can blame them.
Men don’t get HIV from infected women unless blood is exchanged. DSK may have infected his victim with a serious STD and she should be followed for that possibility.
Apparently, his attorneys are already publicly floating a "it was consensual" defense. If so, then it is a pretty good bet that they expect for there to be DNA evidence.
I thought I read in one of the accounts that there was blood found in the hotel room.
There won’t be a trial. I’m assuming he’s guilty. Accept that as a given for the moment. He will take a plea..probably get 3 years, possibility of parole after 2 years,and then, because of the international ramifications ( like if he got shanked while in Attica) he will be transferred to federal custody and do his time at a mid-level security Fed prison..
It’s interesting that Bill Clinton was the one that pushed through and signed a bill that made the accused sexual harrasser’s past behavior relevant to court procedings,
then proceded to lie under oath in order to avoid being subject to that law.
The “consensual” defense was Plan B. Plan A was that he had a solid alibi, but they had to abandon that when they learned that there was DNA evidence.
You know, I don’t know how defense attorneys sleep at night.
Damn, if this had only happened to another socialist-0bama...
La Chienne m’ont incité à être blâmé!
That’s French for “the b*tch set me up”!
But, isnt that separate but equal? Shouldnt they be in regular section 8 housing with everyone else?
I would ask the same question. Unless someone is in a hospice situation (seriously late stages of AIDS), or is a serious criminal offender, I wouldn’t find too much reason to allow them to live separately. But then again, nowadays, it seems too many people like to hang out with birds of their own feather.
They do always manage to spin things that way don’t they?
Not only is he guilty, but all of France is, too.
Most plausible: They are both HIV negative or he is and she is not. Africa is rampant with HIV. Hetero men do not get HIV very easily.
Least plausible: this is a political hit, and he is to be held harmless.
She might not need to take the stand if the medical evidence is strong enough. We know DSK lied and changed his story (according to media reports), so you can’t discount potential conflicts in her story (or what was reported to be her story by the media) without doing the same for him.
Not passing judgment on anyone, but hoping that justice is done.
Saw something like this first hand.
While in the Navy, my buddies and I were in a hotel room. One of the waitresses came up and started drinking with us. She got so drunk she got sick. The guy who had brought her up to the room took her into the bathroom to ‘help’ her.
When he and the girl came out she left and he claimed to have had sex with her. We were all appalled. How could you have sex with a sick drunk girl?
The next day we went into the restaurant for lunch and the same girl was there. Only now, she had a pencil sized sore on her upper lip. We all looked at the guy and said, “Serves you right!”
How people can have sex with prostitutes is beyond me. Not only do I not want to have sex with a stripper or a prostitute, I don’t want to even touch them or go near them. Must just be me.
