DSK keeps smiling, but he might have AIDS.

Apparently this maid lives in housing that’s exclusively for AIDS sufferers.

Also, her husband is dead..... from what, I don’t know, but possibly AIDS?

If DSK gets AIDS it might slow down the New World Order.

Any relation to Amadou Diallo, gunned down in a doorway by cops while he reached for his wallet? Or was he the guy who got sodomized with a broom handle by cops. So many atrocities, it’s hard to keep them straight.

You just know DSK has the money to buy the most advanced treatment science has come up with.

Diallou (I think with a U) was the wallet guy who got shot. Somebody else got the broom treatment.

The union she belongs to sent her to work at the luxury hotel rather than sending her to the hotels around the JFK airport. It is not usual for new hires to start out in luxury hotels.

My question is, how much does the union know or have to do with her “turn down service”? She is pretty and obviously, according to her bank account, made a good living as a whore who happens to clean rooms.

I never had that kind of room service before.

Usually looks more like this...

also, she doesn’t dress like the “devout Muslim” presumably with veil that she has been portrayed as.

correction, the maid was “allegedly assaulted”

this is one case where the usual “allegedly” qualification is especially important — there is little reason to believe it was a sexual assault rather than something consensual with a hotel whore who happened to be working as a maid there....

perhaps he didn’t know she expected payment, or perhaps she tried to demand more money than he’d agreed to, who knows at this point, but her credibility and her whole story of sexual assault seem to be on broken thin ice......

Actually, I believe the assault took place. I am making no claims as to the whole situation.

I was thinking that immediately on seeing her surname.

I will and report back.

Interesting, what I found....this is absolutely the FIRST time I have seen her name, but as soon as ONE WEEK after the alleged assault took place she was mentioned by name on a website called AFRICAN VIEWS, which also included a comprehensive run-down of everything that was known about the case, and ALL the players from the IMF, French politics and US Law Enforcement. Kind of surprising that her name has been out there that long. Some commentators have even written that she was the WIFE of Amadou Diallo, and they both have roots in Guinea. But Diallo happens to be a surname in that part of the world as common as “Kim” in Korea.

Diallo is the West African equivalent of Smith or Patel or Chang.

I have always wondered if some of the maids in some of these upscale hotels don’t offer sex for pay to their wealthy clients. It may have been customary for Dominique Strauss-Kahn to engage in the maid services at some of these hotels. Strauss-Kahn may have thought Nafissatou Diallo was one of those maids and offered money. When she refused, he took offense and took his liberties anyway.

Her name and photo have been plastered all over the French press for months.
In America, we have an unwritten rule about not publishing the name or photo of alleged victims of sex crimes. I will continue to respect that journalistic tradition.
No matter the character of the victim, or her immigration status, I believe the attack did indeed take place.
Knowing DSK’s history and following his career for many years, there is nothing in this woman’s story to make me doubt it. We have heard it all many times before over many years.

I agree completely. DSK has a pattern of this kind of behavior over the years. His wife’s god daughter TrIstane Banon is planning to sue DSK for attempted rape, describing the incident as almost identical to the one in NY.
No matter what the accuser’s lifestyle or character, it doesn’t change the fact she was atracked.
DSK is a serial sexual predator, and every woman who has ever had contact with him knows it. No one in France was shocked, just feigning shock that the “ corrupt American justice system” finally caught him.

Not according to local news reports. She came here legally on a visitor's visa then claimed asylum saying that if she was sent back, she would be raped or killed. She was granted asylum and has a legal "green" card.

"I have always wondered if some of the maids in some of these upscale hotels don’t offer sex for pay to their wealthy clients."

A fantasy. I doubt it. I've been three times 'round the world. Stayed in everything from 5-star hotels to $10 per night flop houses. Never had that kind of "service" offered by hotel staff. In some places sex workers were allowed on hotel property for a "fee" paid to the hotel manager, or "fine" paid to the local house detective. The closest thing was a late night call I once received from a front desk clerk asking "did you want something from the lady in the lobby?" Other than that, there was always a strict adherence to a division of labor. The women who cleaned your room may have come from starving impoverished families, doing menial low paying jobs for wealthy world travelers, but they weren't whores. No amount of money offered could change that.

"I've been three times 'round the world. Stayed in everything from 5-star hotels to $10 per night flop houses..."

Basically the same here, except I lost track of times around the world. Owned an international group-travel company (CEO), used to host "Bonus Tours" (New Year's Eve in Seville or London, Summer Carribbean Cruises) which we gave as free perqs to our biggest group leaders. Worked doing that for over 20 years.

I never, ever even came close to a "chance sexual liason," never even heard of one... especially as a "service" (even sub-rosa) offered by a reputable hotel.

Though I have heard some racey stories about trips to Viet Nam and Thailand from a Spanish supplier. Different ballgame. I mean, why else would someone travel 22 hours to go to a place called Bangkok or Phuket?

“The union she belongs to sent her to work at the luxury hotel ...”

When a business does not hire their own employees they are courting disaster. Unions have far too much power over unionized companies these days.
