More Strauss-Kahn Rumors Emerge Updated: Sunday, 22 May 2011, 9:35 AM CDT Published : Sunday, 22 May 2011, 9:35 AM CDT
(NewsCore) - NEW YORK -- Former International Monetary Fund (IMF) head Dominique Strauss-Kahn attempted to lure two attractive hotel employees to his $3,000-a-night New York hotel suite -- and later put the moves on an Air France flight attendant following his alleged sexual assault on a maid, the New York Post reported Sunday.
"What a nice ass!" he barked to the attendant, using the lewd French expression "Quel beau cul!" as she prepared the business-class cabin for takeoff last Saturday.
His catcall came just moments before Port Authority detectives hauled him off the plane, French magazine Le Point reported.
The final act of lust capped a whirlwind weekend of attempted womanizing for the former front-runner of the 2012 French presidential election.
The frisky Frenchman first tried his seduction skills on a VIP receptionist who escorted him to his suite at the Sofitel hotel Friday evening, law enforcement sources said.
When he got to his room, the 62 year old asked the "attractive" worker to join him for a glass of Champagne after her shift -- an invitation she described to authorities as "inappropriate" and that she rejected on the spot, the sources said.
Strauss-Kahn, a married father of four, then tried his game the following day on the desk receptionist who first checked him in, described by a source as an "attractive woman who caught his eye."
He asked her to join him in his suite, where he had a complimentary bottle of Dom Perignon Champagne. The woman said that, at first, he was "borderline flirting," and she declined the sordid invite, according to sources.
His attempted seductions came to light after investigators interviewed every Sofitel employee and pored over more than 48 hours of video footage, including recordings of Strauss-Kahn bolting from the hotel Saturday afternoon without checking out.
The silver-haired skirt-chaser did not explicitly ask either woman for sex, but both described his advances as blatantly "inappropriate," the sources said.
The frustrated Lothario allegedly resorted to violence after striking out with the two hotel staffers. Prosecutors said that after emerging from the suite's bathroom naked, he threw himself upon the unsuspecting 32-year-old maid who was in his room to clean.
Strauss-Kahn allegedly chased her down the hallway and into his bedroom, grabbed her breasts, attempted to pull down her pantyhose and forced her to perform fellatio before she tore free from his grasp and ran to tell her colleagues, who called the cops.
After leaving the hotel, the ex-banking big shot stopped for lunch with his daughter Camille, a Columbia University student, before grabbing a cab to JFK Airport. But the harried political bigwig realized that he left one of his seven cell phones behind and called the hotel.
Police investigating the alleged rape attempt had already told hotel employees to ask him where he was and tell him that they would deliver the phone. Strauss-Kahn even asked the pilot to delay the flight so it could be delivered but was refused, according to Le Point.
Strauss-Kahn was indicted on seven counts, including attempted rape, criminal sexual assault and unlawful imprisonment. He could face up to 25 years if convicted. He is pleading not guilty
Now, lets go over to that bridge I was telling you about. It's a short hop to Brooklyn.
He makes Bill Clinton look like an amateur.
Who does he think he is, Bill Clinton?
“What a nice ass!”
Soon to be his prison nick name...
More breaking info at link.
Wrong! Bill Clinton got away with it and was relected.
Running doen the hall, throwing her to the floor....
Not a peep out of her??? and not a mark on him...
She should at least get an Oscar.
She...I believe he was set up.
Entertaining article. In it, Strauss-Kahn is referred to as a “frisky Frenchman,” “silver-haired skirt-chaser,” “frustrated Lothario,” and (losing his one of his seven, SEVEN, cell phones) “harried political bigwig”.
I think we need to see the evidence, Sac *wink*
"I'm paying you $1000.00 an hour. If anybody
at Rikers touches my *** I'll have you disbarred."
More of this stuff will come out at trial, but its not just the rape kit that nails him, its the injuries suffered that are going to hang him.
Also, the stuff about her not screaming, he has a huge suite, I'm not sure how his looked, but some (not all) of the high end suites I stayed in, I could have throw a superbowl party and no one would have known.
Didn't his big scandal come after 1996?
However, he did survive impeachment, and established the NOW endorsed "one free grope rule" for those who support abortion.
Dominique is going to make some home-boy on the cell block a really nice wife.
There IS lots of physical evidence---DNA under her fingernails when she scratched him, blood on the bed, a paper trail indicating he had flim-flammed the hotel into thinking he had left.
Luxe hotels handle $3000 a night guests with kid gloves. There's a protocol----the help does not freely enter rooms at will. Apparently maids are not allowed to enter rooms until they are specifically told the guest has departed.
The hotel first sends in a bellman to cart off dishes, empty bottles, and the like BEFORE the maids go in to clean.
The victim had been told by the bellman that the guest had left....and got the OK to enter the room. But when she walked in, DSK was apparently hiding in the bathroom and ran out to attack her when he heard her come in.
From what we now know, it looks like HE set her up for rape.
They hustled him off to Rikers despite a high paid lawyer's plea........b/c he's done this before and had been warned. As was posted above----everyone in Paris has known for years he had something of a problem. Not many female journalists are prepared to interview him alone.
Interesting that he bolted the hotel to escape and left his belongings-----but really, really wanted the cell phone. Makes you wonder what was on there that he was desperate to hide?
After Magnum and Tawana and the fact that Kahn WAS chief contender for the President of France until this happened....I'll wait.
Remember....Magnum's rape kit said bruises etc consistent with rape.
Those stupid buttons keep getting smaller.
She VOLUNTEERED to take it when a "colleague" went on leave.
Things that make you go hmmmmm.
Now...about that "setup" theory....
"I do not unnerstan' eet. How could zee ungrateful wench not have wanted me with ev'ry fiber of her being, seeing me nakeed een all my splendor and glory...?"
Is it possible to do that? I would not want a set of sharp teeth in combination with a very angry woman anywhere in that vicinity
“On ze wai to ze hôtel I eat ze Americain ‘Twinkee.’ It make me crazee.”
A cleaning surpervisor found her hiding in the hallway outside of Kahn's door.
The cleaning supevisor was doing a routine check at the time.
Brought her into Kahn's suite.
A higher ranked cleaning supervisor wascalled in.
The maid couldn't talk.
She kept spitting (making evidence)
It was an hour between the rape and the call to the police.
Sorry....I smell "setup".
Yes very strange indeed.
With the likely exception of Nina Burleigh.
Wow. His daughter was the only female he saw that day that he didn’t try to get with. As far as we know. What a freaking pepe le pew.
The YouTube sing-along will be posted soon = “Dominique” by the singing nun - BWAHAHAHAHA!
The poor woman. I am glad she got good advice to go ahead with charging him. Who knows how many poor,scared women this powerful man has raped? It’s sick that a man can be excited when forcing a scared, unwilling victim to submit. But that is rape rape, and it doesn’t matter how rich the rapist is.
“After leaving the hotel, the ex-banking big shot stopped for lunch with his daughter Camille, a Columbia University student, before grabbing a cab to JFK Airport. ..”
After fleeing a rape?
“Police investigating the alleged rape attempt had already told hotel employees to ask him where he was and tell him that they would deliver the phone. Strauss-Kahn even asked the pilot to delay the flight so it could be delivered but was refused, according to Le Point.”
He’s so anxious to get out of the country he asks the pilot to delay the flight?
Something is odd about all this (or at least, what the press is reporting).
DSK may well be guilty; but, OTOH, he may not be.
I'm with you on that one.
I’m so surprised that the DNA evidence you describe isn’t on the front page of newspapers or being screamed on web pages. It looks like their looking hard but not finding much when I Google.
Sorry, I haven’t seen any info on your defense of Strauss-Kahn side that is relevant enough to counteract the accusations. Especially if all the dan evidence pans out.
All your defense excuses show is that the guy is used to getting away with attacking women. Bill Clinton was too. Power corrupts absolutely.
Dan = DNA
We do not know if there were marks or scratches on him as of yet. As for her, we know she was definitely bruised during the assault, and the rape kit showed some damage, iirc?
Time to sing = http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2723421/posts
You are so sure it was setup, why? Did you defend Tiger Woods also? Did you defend Bill Clinton? You have no idea how a rape victim will act.
This guy has a long history of sex accusations against him. And for that very reason, I tend to believe the story unless proven otherwise!
Riiiight! That stinks to high heaven! Substituting for colleagues?! Things like that never happen in the real world! And "fire can't melt steel."
I also read that the maid is a devout Muslim and wears her veil....
I kind of hope he’s not guilty of this crime but is found guilty anyway.
Being a French Socialist is not a crime but he should be punished for it anyway. Kind of like O.J. not serving time for murder but hey, time is time, no matter what he’s serving it for.
Especially if she's reportedly the widow of an AIDS victim, who continues to live in housing reserved for HIV-positive individuals.
He apparently has scratches on him, too (on his body, not on his face).
This guy was such a sleaze. Anybody who has worked in the restaurant and hospitality industry will recognize the type.
But he was so powerful he thought he could get away with anything. And the French seem to agree. The press is filled with comments like, “but it doesn’t matter, she was just a chambermaid.”
There is a difference between a flirt and a predator. I had the wonderful experience of working for the latter for a short period of time. By the end, every woman in our department refused to be in an office with him if the door was closed. No one was ever left in the office suite alone with him either. We stopped accepting individual lunch invitations (which more than once conveniently included a stop by his home), take him to the airport or be in any other situation that gave him an opening.
Experience receptionists at places like the Sofitel can probably smell the difference, let alone pick up the nuances in the predator’s delivery.
In which case she would love the Socialists (he’s a Socialist), because it’s Sarkozy who is pressing the anti-veil legislation.
She wouldn’t attack or be set up to attack one of her own sympathizers.
I bet you’re going to see that this guy has a history of going after lower-status women everywhere he’s been. He’s on his third wife, so he was obviously going after higher-status women, too.
He is probably used to having hotels pressure their maids not to tell, possibly with a payoff involved. But I bet that generally the employer just pressured the maid or maybe offered her something trivial like her preferred shift because they wanted to keep his business. Airlines probably ignored any complaints from their attractive female flight attendants too.
But suddenly he encountered the NYPD and lost his magic.
The problem is all these odd coincidences...
1. Not her usual floor
2. Found by accident hiding in the hall next to Kahn's room
3.Maid Taken BACK into Kahn's room by supervisor and she's spitting all over the place
4. The phone??
5. An hour before they called police??
So he has a planned lunch with his daughter, a booked flight to Paris...where he lives and decides to attack the maid. Yeh, right...
I read it was lunch with one of his exes and their daughter Camille, the Columbia grad student.
Then he takes a cab to the airport, realizes he forgot one of his phones, and calls the hotel. Sofitel tells him they'll courier it out to airport, but sends the Port Authority Police instead.
So, contrary to initial impressions of haste, it would seem obvious he didn't think he'd done anything he hadn't got away with plenty of times before. Make of that what you will. LOL! After all, if it hadn't been for the phone, he'd have been high over the North Atlantic before they figured out where he was.
