‘He Hurt Me, I Told Him No’: The Latest Accusations Against DSK

Posted by John Rosenthal

Just two days before last Sunday’s presidential elections, news broke that French judicial authorities are contemplating bringing rape charges against former IMF director Dominique Strauss-Kahn in connection with the so-called Carlton Affair. Strauss-Kahn has hitherto “merely” been under investigation for aiding and abetting the organization of a prostitution ring in connection with the affair, which revolves around a series of “sex parties” with prostitutes that were organized for his benefit.

The most recent revelations have received some limited coverage in the American news media: notably, in the form of a short article in the New York Times. But the Times report is sparse on details, coy and linguistically-challenged to boot.

For a more complete picture, including translated excerpts from the statements of Strauss-Kahn’s accuser, see my new article at the Weekly Standard online here.
