A Quick Tip by Sharrie

The guy has a high profile job, a well known public figure, rich and powerful. So, what did he do? Go & "terrorize" hotel's housekeeper? What's going on in this guy mind? 

Ok, granted, innocent until proven guilty. But, does he really need such publicity and total damage to his reputation and job and even political career? Well, it doesn't quite matter how the case turns out ultimately, does it? For most part, his career and future are almost foregone conclusion!

As for the "victim", well, it's no joke going into such a court. Whatever the outcome, she'll be going through the "time" of her life. 

In this case, the only party who benefits is probably the media! They certainly have a party covering this case! What a waste of taxpayers' money!

About this topic


In the early afternoon of May 14, 2011 at the Sofitel New York Hotel, a 32-year-old female hotel maid entered Dominique Strauss-Kahn's suite to clean it. She alleged that Strauss-Kahn sexually assaulted her. According to a law enforcement source, Strauss-Kahn left the hotel in a hotel limo, and later called the hotel to say that he had left behind his cell phone and to ask if it could be brought to him at the airport. At 4:40 that afternoon, police officers removed Strauss-Kahn from Air France Flight 23 at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport, moments before takeoff for Paris. They arrested him for allegedly sexually assaulting the maid. He was held at a police precinct awaiting his initial court appearance.

On May 16 Strauss-Kahn appeared in New York City Criminal Court before Judge Melissa Carow Jackson and was charged with two counts of a criminal sexual act in the first degree (a class B violent felony, with a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison), first-degree attempted rape, first-degree sexual abuse, second-degree unlawful imprisonment, forcible touching, and third-degree sexual abuse. A prosecutor stated that the alleged victim has provided a detailed account of the alleged assault that was corroborated by a sexual-assault examination, that the alleged victim picked Strauss-Kahn out of a lineup, and that DNA evidence recovered at the site was being tested.  Strauss-Kahn did not enter a plea but his lawyer has said he denies all ...
