Pretty clear to ME, at least, that Strauss-Kahn WAS guilty of both rape and assault {brutalizing the maid};
and that the maid, a poor immigrant, was threatened and made to change her testimony...

So this picture is appropriate.
Apparently this PIG {sorry, pigs!} of a "man", treats ALL his sexual "conquests", with brutality...
that's his "thing". Hope he finally gets his, by the LAW...

This is an interesting site, for a Black point-of-view; the Hotel Maid was Black...

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former chief of the International Monetary Fund, will face charges of aggravated pimping in a French court, the Associated Press reports.

Strauss-Kahn was thrust into the media spotlight in 2011 after he was arrested on charges that he sexually abused a maid, Nafissatou Diallo, at a Manhattan hotel. A New York City judge dismissed the sexual assault charges after an assistant district attorney told the court that inconsistencies in the 32-year-old accuser's story made it impossible to defend her. Strauss-Kahn resigned as head of the IMF before the charges were dropped.

Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn will have to defend himself in a French court on charges of aggravated pimping despite recommendations by prosecutors that the charges be dropped.

Judges investigating the case in the northern city of Lille, [France] decided on Friday to go ahead with charges of aggravated pimping in a group.

The case revolves around an alleged hotel prostitution ring and hinges on whether Strauss-Kahn knew he was partying with prostitutes and whose money was used to pay them. His lawyers have said Strauss-Kahn had attended "libertine" gatherings but did not know that some women there were paid.

A total of 14 people, including Strauss-Kahn, are to be charged with aggravated pimping in a group. A more serious charge of organized pimping was dropped earlier.

Prosecutors in June had asked for the case against Strauss-Kahn to be dropped on the grounds of lack of evidence, though they agreed the others should be charged.

Hope they all get what they deserve. Justice over money, hopefully!

I agree with Angie, far to often it's the other way around. Thanks B.

Well, that's interesting. I don't believe I have heard of that charge before. Aggravated pimping. Honestly, I'm sure if what Strass-Kahn did was harm a woman or piss off the higher ups. If they don't have the evidence, maybe they should not precede to court?

Uh huh...

I've never heard of that charge either - but he should be rotting in jail for what he did to that poor woman!

I don't care about DSK but this is weird. He was arrested and had to walk the walk of shame in NYC. Now the same city lets Weiner the exhibitionist run for mayor.

For some reason my comments didn't post...

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in th name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end."

The Catholic Church has been getting away theft, torture, murder for centuries - what's pedophilia to them??
They still haven't returned all the artworks gotten in WWII from Nazis and the Jewish people.
They have put themselves avbove any law - including their God's.I really hope there is a Hell - they can skip Purgatory and go straight to the Devil.

Hmm, GGma, Good post, wrong thread! ;-D

This is a widespread problem. I hope this won't be plea bargained, or something.

From the article: " His lawyers have said Strauss-Kahn had attended 'libertine' gatherings but did not know that some women there were paid."

Yeah. Right. What women in her right mind would have sex with him unless they were a prostitute and being paid handsomely for tolerating the experience?
