One of the world’s most prominent statesmen – Dominique Strauss-Kahn – had his respected career in international politics (he was on the way to becoming President of France) destroyed when a 33-year-old African hotel maid spread lies about him.
How do we know they were lies? Because her story of the so-called rape changed nearly every time she told it. Because she told an egregious lie about being gang-raped in Africa. Because she got in touch with an old jail-bird to discuss how the Strauss-Kahn affair could be exploited financially.
The New York D.A.”s office ceased to believe. They didn’t think a jury would believe her. Sensibly they dropped the charges.
Strauss-Kahn is now free to try to pick up his tattered career.
Should the hotel maid be charged with a crime because she caused so much damage to others?
Why would the hotel maid lie?
What do you think? I think there was sex in the hotelroom, but it was consensual.
