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.
