The guy might be total scum, but she is worse. She has destroyed his reputation and now it looks like he will not be able to fulfill his dream of serving his country as President of France. It might not seem much to you, or others on here, but for him this has destroyed a dream of leading his country.
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.
Whoa wait a minute Partner. I agree this woman was garbage, but this guy did actually have some sort of sex with her and has a history of harrassment a mile long.Obviously his marriage means little to him.
He is no hero to be leading a country, he is a POS who got what he had been asking for for years, Only his money has saved him now from prison.
He deserved to be taken down a peg and France is lucky.
“His dream of being able to molest whoever he wants with impunity?” The guy’s immoral. not who we need leading France or leading the local gas station.
If France is lucky the political opposition will slip him a hemlock on the flight home.
“The guy might be total scum, but she is worse. “
This could not have turned out better! Two scum balls with one shot! Since Strauss-Kahn has been a stalker his whole life, it’s fitting that one of his number has been able to bring him down. France can do a whole lot better.
Had he never pulled his pecker out of his pants his dream would still live.
You mean he's no longer considered a chaud lapin?
