Dominique Strauss-Kahn's Goddaughter: Yeah, He Tried To Rape Me, Too, in 2002
Ace of Spades ^ | 05/24/11 | Ace of Spades

[SNIP]

But now Tristane Banon, the 31-year-old god-daughter of Strauss-Kahn’s second wife Brigitte Guillemette, said he attacked her almost a decade ago.

Ms Banon will now tell French detectives about the alleged attempted rape, which took place in an anonymous studio flat in Paris in 2002.

Strauss-Kahn lured the then 21-year-old trainee journalist to the property under the promise of an interview, and then started to rip her clothes off, it is claimed.

‘I kicked him, I called him a rapist, he didn’t seem to care,’ said Ms Banon in earlier interviews, in which she also described Strauss-Kahn as acting like a ‘rutting chimpanzee’.

Ms Banon’s mother, Anne Mansouret, said the only reason she did not press charges at the time was because 'she was just starting out in journalism' and was afraid of being 'defined by the story' of being attacked by a senior politician.

Mrs Mansouret has now confirmed that her daughter is making a report to Paris police, and may hold a press conference about an ordeal which left her 'traumatised'

Probably the same thing that makes balding, fat, middle aged men who think the 13 and 14 year old girls on line just can't wait to hook up with them.

[TOM walk in to a room alone.]

TOM

I thought I could help you SENATOR.

GEARY

Hagen.

[TOM nods.]

Listen, I did not —

TOM

I know, you’re alright.

GEARY

I didn’t do anything.

TOM

It’s okay. You’re very lucky — my brother FREDO operates this place, he was called before anyone. If this had happened someplace else, we couldn’t’ve helped you..

GEARY

I — when I woke up, I was on the floor — and I don’t know how it happened.

TOM

You can’t remember?

GEARY

I passed out.

[He stands up and moves over the bed where we see a bloody dead girl.]

I — I’ll fix it.

[He unties the girl’s hand from the bed post.]

Just a game.

[He takes a towel and begins to wipe up the blood that is all over her. He looks at the towel and wipes off his hands.]

Jesus, Jesus.

[He begins to cry. As he does, TOM looks over at NERI who is wiping his hands in the bathroom.]

Jesus, God — Oh, God. I don’t know — and I can’t understand — why I can’t remember.

TOM

You don’t have to remember — just do as I say. We’re putting a call into your office — explain that you’ll be there tomorrow afternoon — you decided to spend the night at Michael Corleone’s house in Tahoe — as his guest.

GEARY

I do remember that she was laughing...we’d done it before — and I know that I couldn’t’ve hurt — that girl

TOM

This girl has no family — nobody knows that she worked here. It’ll be as if she never existed. All that’s left is our friendship.

Except for being the spawn of high and mighty elitist French socialists she is definitely NOT guilty. And she could have even been hotter at 21. Sorry. I don’t know how to post photos on FR. Just Google her.

So here we are in one of the power centers in the ‘mature’, liberal utopia of Europe where feminism and women’s rights have lead us to what?

Better that we go back to putting women on a pedestal, holding doors for them and maintaining our provincial, pedestrian ways of admiring them as daughters of God as opposed to eye candy and sex objects of Mammon.

If he used the same MO back then-—DSK can’t use the “consensual-set-up” defenses for the maid incident, and expect to be credible.

Sorry, but I couldn’t resist.

Actually, this charge is more likely FAKE.

This is his second wife’s daughter and second wife seeking a measure of revenge on the man now that it is politically safe to do so.

Currently he is on his third wife:
“He has been married to his third wife, French journalist Anne Sinclair, since 1991.”

So we have an alleged attack occurring in 2002 but not reported til 2011.

We have no location for the attack.

We have no DNA evidence from the attack. Shoot, the complaint does not even indicate that he raped her, just that he ‘attempted it’. So there would probably be no DNA evidence in this new claim.

Any physical evidence is long since destroyed because they waited 9 years to make a complaint. Any potential witnesses are long since gone.

We just have the word of the daughter and the ex-wife that such an attack took place. People who very probably have a grudge against this man.

So other than making for sensational press and further vilifying this man in the press, this ‘charge’ is not going anywhere.

It is highly likely to be a FALSE claim made for personal retribution.

It doesn’t sound like he used the same MO.

Now why was the maid in his hotel room while he was ‘in the bathroom’?

The claim is: “She alleged that after exiting his bathroom naked he attempted to forcibly have intercourse with her, to submit to anal sex and to perform oral sex”

In every hotel that I have been to, the maids don’t come into the room while the customers are still there.

PERIOD.

Interesting claim. Really, men thing 12 and 13 year olds want to ‘hook up with them’.

Misandrist much?

Don’t watch the naughty female school teacher cases?

Cause there have been a ton of cases of naughty school teachers having their way with their 12 year old charges.

What is it with these rich, powerful older men who think every woman in the world wants to sleep with them?

When I was a field sales rep. calling on various corporations and companies, it was telling that the "hits" all came from larger company executives. They do so because so many woman do indeed "sleep their way to the top".

My experiences have always been that of standing , shaking hands and thanking them for the meeting..but since their "minds" are otherwise occupied I would call and re-set the appointment...stating this I was going to the door to make my exit.

The key thing for woman is once the conversation moves to anything outside business you're there for... you are responsible to bring it back to business...not entertain the clients loss of focus. Far to woman enjoy this type of engagement as it flatters their egos....But if they persist you politily but matter of factly begin your departure. This can be done in a professional matter...and successfully. Most men get the drift.

However the higher in power men get it does seem many do see themselves as entitled to the woman they might want, and many woman who are willing to acccomodate them...and it doesn't matter who the woman is because it isn't about her...it's about satsifying an appetite powerful men do not want to control.

Right---as I posted several times to date-----

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 earlier----everyone in Paris knew for years he had something of a problem. Not many female journalists were prepared to interview him alone.......and other hotel maids are said to be talking.

Interesting that he bolted the hotel to escape and left his belongings behind------but really, really wanted the cell phone. Makes you wonder what was on there that he was desperate to hide?

To begin with, I did not say all men.

Don’t watch the naughty female school teacher cases?

Cause there have been a ton of cases of naughty school teachers having their way with their 12 year old charges.

I'd be willing to bet that men abusing little girls is a much bigger problem than "naughty teachers", if by that you mean female teachers and I believe from the context that you do.

Check your local sex offender registry if you don't believe it. In my own county there are 316 cases listed, exactly 4 of them are women.
