Oh, I understand that this has destroyed in the short-term his goal of running to become President of France (no guarantee he’d have won). He could probably, in time and given the nature of this particular charge, overcome the damage to his reputation. The other stories that emerged publicly, tho, will be harder for him to deal with if he wants to pursue a political career.
To me, one of the absolute worst things anyone can do is to set out to destroy another’s reputation. Unfortunately for Mr Strauss Kahn, he IS, and was known widely - as in open secrets - to be a sleazeball. He’s no Ray Donovan.

True, but even those with perfect reputations can be a lot worse. Now that he is vindicated, I am sure that he will be able to work on fixing things up, like going on television and talking about it frankly in interviews and also make sure that all and sundry know that it was false. He must thank his lucky stars that he had the resources to protect himself.
