*Former Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Dominique Strauss-Kahn, is looking at some serious time after he was handed the preliminary charges Monday, alleging his involvement in a French prostitution ring.
He’s more than shattered his own reputation; he’s disgraced the IMF since he was arrested and charged with hiring hookers in an international operation
“He could easily not have known, because as you can imagine, at these kind of parties you’re not always dressed,” one of his lawyers Henri Leclerc told a French radio station.
Strauss-Kahn paid $134,000 bail and was released under the condition he does not communicate with others targeted in the probe.
Investigators are exploring the ring’s ties to organized crime and the misuse of corporate funds.
French prosecutors believe that Strauss-Kahn’s last sex party was in D.C., in May 2011, just before he was busted in New York for attacking a hotel maid.
Strauss-Kahn, 62, whose nickname, “Hot Rabbit,” came from his randy reputation, was accused of raping Nafissatou Diallo the African hotel maid in Manhattan later that month.
She claimed that he chased her around his suite at the Sofitel hotel in Midtown Manhattan, dragged her into the bathroom and forced her to perform oral sex on him.
Unfortunately her credibility was put into question when she was linked to drug crimes.
