Dominique Strauss-Kahn was released from house arrest on Friday as the sexual assault case against him moved one step closer to dismissal after prosecutors told a Manhattan judge that they had serious problems with the case....

Although forensic tests found unambiguous evidence of a sexual encounter between Mr. Strauss-Kahn and the woman, prosecutors now do not believe much of what the accuser has told them about the circumstances or about herself.

Since her initial allegation on May 14, the accuser has repeatedly lied, one of the law enforcement officials said.

Wow. What a circus this is gonna be if the case is dismissed after they put him on lockdown and smeared him in the papers like that.

Being white helps, but being rich helps so much more.

someone like Strauss-Kahn has the resources to make anyone seem not-credible. I'm not saying he did, but he certainly could.

yeah, it benefits all of the western economies to smear her and make the incident disappear.

He's gonna walk. The woman's credibility is shot and the prosecutors don't have a leg to stand on anymore, except little things like the evidence.... Sad fact of life, money and power usually trump justice.

He's probably going to run for the presidency as well, with a pretty decent chance at winning.

Ha ... nonapplicable sides with the French lefties against the American media. It's stuff like this that keeps me coming back for more.

I suppose if Dominique wants to stay in a $3000-a-night hotel and get sucked off by the maid, that's between him, his wife and the maid. On the other hand, it doesn't take a genius to know if you play with fire you can get burned. I wonder if Dominique thinks that blowjob was worth it?

Not this one (from the NY Times):

"Strauss-Kahn to Face New Sex Charge in France
By ALAN COWELL
Published: July 4, 2011

PARIS — A French writer who recently said Dominique Strauss-Kahn tried to sexually assault her in 2003 will officially accuse him of attempted rape, her lawyer announced Monday, even as separate sexual assault charges against Mr. Strauss-Kahn in New York seemed to be weakening.

In an interview published on the Web site of L’Express magazine, the lawyer, David Koubbi, said he would file papers on Tuesday alleging attempted rape. He said his client, Tristane Banon, now 32, “truly suffered what she accuses Mr. Strauss-Kahn of doing,” apparently trying to differentiate her from the hotel maid who accused him in New York, whose credibility is now in doubt. Mr. Strauss-Kahn was released from house arrest on Friday, though he still faces felony counts.

Mr. Koubbi insisted said that Ms. Banon’s case was “extremely solid.”
