(VIDEO) 8/22/11: CHARGES DROPPED FOR FORMER IMF CHIEF DOMINQUE STRAUSS-KAHN?

The former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, may have been granted a lucky break.  According to news reports, prosecutors are expected to drop criminal charges related to allegations that he sexually assaulted a hotel housekeeper earlier this year.

While visiting an upscale hotel in New York, housekeeper Nafissatou Diallo accused him of sexual assault.  Although Strauss-Kahn was arrested, a judge released him after prosecutors learned Diallo had lied about where she went after the incident.

Although Stauss-Kahn resigned soon after the alleged assault, it appears his elite status may have helped with the outcome. It is unfortunate that his victim probably was not in the position to stand her ground.  Strauss-Kahn said it was all consensual, but why would she lie? 

Multiple women came forward and also accused him of the same behavior, how can he keep getting off the hook?  Well at least this did stop him from becoming President.  It would be creepy to have an alleged sex offender as a leader.

What do you think?  Did his position allow him to avoid prosecution?

This follows the recent charge of a brutal assault of a maid at a Chicago hotel. It was shocking to hear of the charges, but the alleged attack must have some substance if he resigns.

5/15/11: IMF LEADER DOMINIQUE STAUSS-KAHN ARRESTED FOR ASSAULT OF NYC MAID

It was incredible to hear that the head of the IMF (International Monetary Fund), Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested in New York city for alleged sexual assault.  Kahn was taken into custody this morning, while on board a plane at John F. Kennedy International Airport, after a maid for a New York city hotel, alleged he assaulted her.

He denies the claim, but it is certain to be a strike against him whether it’s true or not. This is certain to hurt his chances as a presidential candidate for France; he was a front runner as a possible competitor against current president Nicolas Sarkozy.

Let’s hope for the sake of politics, this is not the case.  It would be unfortunate to hear of another leader using their power, for the wrong reasons.

UPDATE 5/16/11: Kahn was denied bail, once maid provided details of alleged violent assault.
