Guy In Charge of World’s Money Jailed For Sex Attack On Hotel Maid

Mon dieu!How are the people in charge of the money treating the people who serve the people in charge of the money these days? Still not so good, it seems! International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was hauled off an Air France flight just before departing New York, all because the cops say he tried to rape a hotel maid and then made a hasty departure for the airport. (Also: These sorts of people have “standing access to Air France’s business class,” so there’s no need to make reservations or whatever. The good life!) Maybe some world leader did something nice over the weekend, too. Who knows. Does Google News have a section for that?

Anyway, this guy was supposedly running for president of France, so that means “everybody” knew he had weird sexytime habits, allegedly. Have you ever been in some four-star hotel and thought, “Eh, maybe I’ll rape somebody from the housekeeping staff”? Is this a normal thought, in the minds of the rich and the powerful? Sure seems to be common enough with the Eurozone’s leaders. What is wrong with this crowd?

What is wrong with everything? The Internet! We haven’t touched the computer all weekend, both because it was the weekend and also because, tonight, our power went out for like nine hours. And we wanted to save the last bit of battery juice to put on the classical station so we could sleep peacefully, but no, the power had to come back on, and we just had to check Google News, just in case! It gets dull, this habit. We remember turning off the lights and locking the office door about fifteen years ago so we could spend the three-day weekend drinking beer outside and eating psilocybin mushrooms in the park because it was a rare sunny holiday in San Francisco, and then we checked the news wires “just in case” and Princess Diana had been killed in that car crash in Paris, so there went the pleasant holiday weekend. Type type type, for the Internet.

Anyway, everybody in the “service industry” should be especially careful over the coming weeks, because the rich & powerful are getting extra weird. [New York Times]

    I thought the head of the IMF was Ethan Hunt – this fucker doesn't look anything like Tom Cruise.

    Say, wasn't this the plot of that sappy romantic-comedy film with Jennifer Lopez? And then they got married and lived happily ever after, right?

        Single best rock show I ever saw was the Nick Lowe & Rockpile/Mink DeVille/Elvis Costello tour in 1979. I had some friends who thought that the ultimate rock experience was Cheap Trick and I had to drag them to this show – they couldn't thank me enough afterwards.

        1. bumfug

          I take that back – I saw Frank Zappa in Frankfurt, Germany and Janis Joplin in Hoechst (suburb of Frankfurt) and since I got to party with Janis' band at the Hotel Intercontinental after the show, THAT would have to be the best rock show experience. Zappa's concert was the best rock show ever, though, no doubt about it.

            All I can remember of that Jimi Hendrix concert in Seattle is the dust drifting through the spotlights like stars drifting in space creating galaxies. Proably the soundtrack got me going on galaxy creation. (I actually I do remember "scuse me while I kiss this guy" Seemed a little odd for galaxy creation, but I was very deep in the flow.)

    Thanks Ken for being gentle with us this Monday AM. Usually your posts make me want to slice open a vein before/during/after my morning coffee.

  5. sati_demise

    oh, the details are a bog of mess……he left the hotel so fast he forgot his cell phone, there seems to be some kind of dna evidence, police wanting to check out the old boy for scratches and more dna testing. He has a sordid 'history' of a sexual nature. She hasn't got a chance in hell of winning this case even if her story is true.

    1. bumfug

      You listed four reasons he's fucked and then decide this means she can't make her charges stick?

      1. HarryButtle

        Yes, exactly. There's no doubt he's guilty, but in the end, it won't matter. He fucked her in the hotel room, and he'll fuck her again in the courtroom.

        1. proudgrampa

          I fear you're right, Harry. A hotel maid might as well be a Southern Plantation slave for all the rights she has. God help her if she's ethnic.

          1. riverside68

            But there is a critial element in this case: He's a frog in New York.

            DC got no pull in New York, and Frogs can fuck themselves.

            Every single person who ever met anyone in her family has already been contacted by any number of lawyers. He's gonna have to plead to simple assault so her lawyers don't have to litigate the civil settlement. She's gonna get paid, not as much as the lawyers, but you gotta understand: her expenses are much lower.

          2. dr_giraud

            Definitely deported–on the Law and Order SVU version, anyway. Elliot and Olivia will has a sad about it.

      2. tessiee

        "You listed four reasons he's fucked and then decide this means she can't make her charges stick? "

        It seems to me that sati listed four reasons that *an ordinary guy that wasn't an uber-wealthy big shot* would be fucked, not four reasons *he's* fucked.

        But, will the Schengen Treaty allow Strauss Kahn to move to Italy & run against Berlusconi?

        I bet Silvio is shaking in his boots at the prospect. (Italians vote for whoever is the kinkiest/most depraved, right?)

    2. Texan_Bulldog

      Wasn't there a Bruce Willis movie where this diplomat keeps killing everyone but claiming 'diplomatic immunity'? Unfort. Bruce won't be able to shoot this dude.

        1. Texan_Bulldog

          Yeah, I think you're right. I get those Bruce/Mel movies mixed up because of all the fine acting and riveting plot lines.

      1. tessiee

        If that's the movie that had Alan Rickman in it, I didn't really pay attention to anything else.
        For days.

    3. Terry

      His sorrid history apparently includes harassing a woman at the IMF, who was sort of then bought off.

  6. KathrynSane

    "hotel maid" pretty much always equals "underpaid immigrant from a developing country", right? I only ask to see if this is simply a continuation of the IMF's well-established penchant for royally fucking over brown people.

    Anyway, this is gross. I hope she is okay and that he actually gets punished.

    1. finallyhappy

      enslaving and sexually abusing household employees is pretty standard in much of the world. I guess this guy forgot he was in NYC and that it wasn't his house

    2. Tundra Grifter

      KS: To be dead serious on a Monday morning, the woman had the guts to report it. That's an extraordinarily difficult thing to do – also an important first step to get rapists off the street and where they belong.

      As they used to say on Miami Vice, put the guy in a cell with Boogaloo Brown…

    3. comrad_darkness

      First off, a hotel of this caliber handles its staff very well. Unhappy staff do not provide 3k a night level of customer service.

      Secondly, I was impressed by the response from the NYPD. They didn't dick around second guessing who was accusing whom. Very égalitarian country we got here. Suck on that, French Minister Type Person.

  7. Sophist [غني عن ذلك]

    Anyway, everybody in the “service industry” should be especially careful over the coming weeks, because the rich & powerful are getting extra weird.

    As far as the Kochs of the world are concerned, we're all part of the service industry, and we'd better start servicing them PDQ if we want our crust of bread.

    1. zhubajie

      That *is* how it is in 3rd world countries. Koches, et al., probably do want that kind of thing in the US. What good is wealth if you can't use it to humiliate your inferiors?

  8. bumfug

    In all fairness, he wasn't royally fucking her over, he was trying to get her to blow him. Just sayin'.

    1. Texan_Bulldog

      Not being a dude, I never understand why a man would want an unwilling woman to give him oral sex. Isn't he just asking for a painful trip to the ER?

    2. Negropolis

      How did this get any thumbs up, let alone three? First off, from all reports, he first tried to rape her and she fought back, so he ceased that attempt, dragged her into the bathroom, and then decided it'd be less work to get a blow job. It'd have no mattered either way, though. This woman – if all of this is true, of course – clearly tried to rape her and then sexually assaulted her.

      "In all fairness"? Are you fucking serious?

      1. easynewz

        Upfisted for the link. But ZOMG, how that Newty boy can spit out the buzzwords/phrases/dogwhistles AND he only mentions working with Zombie Reagan, not Clinton.

        I'm still hoping that the Newt will be among the first that get raptured (or ruptured) soon.

  11. memzilla

    What amazed him is that she didn't just gracefully acquiesce, expecting that he'd leave an extra 10 euro note on the dresser for her trouble. This behavior works so well with rapey UN troops in DRC, except for the 10 euro note part.

    1. zhubajie

      Possibly she's one of those semi-assimilated immigrants who's gotten born again and wants to "preserve her vessel in purity."

      Hear, Hear. People running the IMF are total losers. Keep buying Silver, Gold and Oil!!!

      We are freakin' doomed.

    2. GeneralLerong

      As if. Gonna haul a pillow case full of the stuff around to pay for a fill-up for the heap? Gold sucks as a currency.

      Two – and pretty much only two – uses for gold:
      1) jewelry
      2) to satisfy hoarders' fantasies that it's somehow a store of value.

      Which latter it is, I guess, if you're selling a lot of stuff to jewelers, instead of selling oil to refineries, cotton to spinning mills, copper to wire manufacturers….

    What makes it a bit sad is that this creep was going to be the Socialist candidate for President and, given that Sarkosy's on the nose, and the left is lacking any other creditable candidates, Le Pen's daughter a chance. So the French have to choose – the rapist or the fascist.

      1. proudgrampa

  14. HedonismBot

    So Ken, tell us more about these psilocybin mushrooms. Someday I can tell my grandchildren all about what I was doing the day bin Laden was killed: I was tripping my balls off.

        Sir, far from me to impugn your knowledge, but I can verify that these mushrooms are exceptionally potent, even more so than the (rather good) stuff synthesized by Herr Hofmann.

    2. undeterredbyreality

      I don't know 'bout y'all, but this morning I woke up and caught the dog and the cats having a conference. Seriously, they were huddled in a circle, discussing, I suppose, my ultimate demise. It's been about 10 years since I last had some a them loverly shrooms. Must be time for a tune-up. If I'm-a gonna be hallucinatin', I might as well have a reason.

  15. zappadoo76

    From the article: "Is this a normal thought, in the minds of the rich and the powerful? Sure seems to be common enough with the Eurozone’s leaders."

    It's not just Eurozone leaders. Remember Paul Wolfowitz, President of the World Bank? Technically speaking, he's an American. Forced to resign over pussy.

    And let's not overlook St. Julian of Assange, from Down Under. Brilliant, brave, and self-destructively addicted to pussy.

    It gets everyone into trouble, guys. This obsession. Just ask yourself sometime: how far am I willing to go? How much will I risk? What sacrifices will I make? What means am I willing to take?

    It's really not that great, you know? Good, but so are char-broiled hamburgers.

    1. proudgrampa

      Jesus, Zappa. You're freaking me out! Pussy is "really not that great???"

      NO, I would not force myself on someone. But, come on, Pussy? Not? That? Great? Crazy!!!

    2. MiniMencken

      As the great artist/theoretician Chris Rock once observed, regarding the Ellen DeGeneres/Anne Heche breakup, when Anne Heche showed up at someone's doorstep in the great San Joaquin Valley babbling about God just days after breaking up with DeGeneres, "It don't matter if you are a man or a woman, that stuff (pussy) will drive you crazy."

      1. mrblifil

        No he's just a true sportsman. For him rape is like playing "The Deadliest Game" except his penis is the weapon. Plus he just naturally assumed he could buy his way out of everything, because surprise surprise, did you know that when your job is to protect the distribution of the world's money, you get to keep a shitload of it for yourself? It's just common sense!

    3. Gleem_McShineys

      It's really not that great, you know?

      This is an example of gays trying to recruit new members for the Gay Agenda (Homo-Sexual Army)! We tried to warn you!!


    4. prommie

      Hey now, yes it is true that pussy can lead men to make some horrendous mistakes, to do some evil, to take a few liberties with their female party guests, its true.

      But you have to keep in mind the other side of the coin. EVERYTHING that men do (hetero men) they do for pussy. Everything, good and bad. Everything, art, literature, commerce, everything, they do it all for the nookie. So, when you are crossing the GWB, remember, George Washington Roebling, he invented the suspension bridge, for the pussy. When you fly on a 747, remember, the Wright brothers, they did it for the pussy. The list is endless.

    5. ttommyunger

      People are different, no big deal. I happen to have lived my 70 years thinking that pussy is not just great; it is the greatest. Later years have allowed me to discover that a hard dick is a much better servant than master. This French Putz has not learned that lesson, ergo, his present situation. She was prolly angling for more than a quickie of some type, most women are. He was just wanting to get off.

  16. MiniMencken

    Strauss-Kahn? Sounds like the name of one of those filthy Jews who left the Third Republic, in the words of the leading Vichy polemicist, Robert Brassilach, smelling like “an old syphilitic whore, stinking of patchouli and yeast infection, still exhaling her bad odors, still standing on her sidewalk,…” Or, maybe not. Nazi-sympathetic invective for the Wonkette's most style-conscious readers or not, Strauss-Kahn is coming off as an evil psycho. But, then, I have class sympathies, at least with women working in hotels for, usually, utterly crap-tastic little sums of money for very long hours. Well. O. K., grandpa was a major recruiter for the IWW. So, are you reading this, Glenn Beck?

    1. tessiee

      I got as far as "patchouli and yeast infection", and then got sidetracked trying to figure out which I'd rather have to smell.

      1. prommie

        Oh, you would rather smell the patchouli, really, you can play the humorous "I hate hippies" pose all you want, but given the choice, you do not want to smell the yeast infection.

  17. Jukesgrrl

    "Have you ever been in some four-star hotel and thought, 'Eh, maybe I’ll rape somebody from the housekeeping staff'?"

    "Thought"? I'm not so sure. I think it's more along the lines of, "Have you ever been in some four-star hotel and just assumed the maid was asking for it because who can resist your wealth and power and she probably doesn't speak French OR English?"

    1. Fukui_sanYesOta

      The formidable Mr Strauss-Kahn, able effortlessly to reel off chunks of the Maastricht treaty, fluent in four European languages (English, German and Spanish, as well as his own tongue), has since, among EU finance ministers, become the biggest hitter.

      The guy can speak pretty much any language you'd expect a NY hotel maid to speak.

      Formidable indeed.

    2. undeterredbyreality

      "Have you ever been in some four-star hotel and thought, 'Eh, maybe I’ll rape somebody from the housekeeping staff'?"

      Have you seen how hawt those housekeepers are in four-star hotels? I mean, c'mon, who hasn't thought that, if only fleetingly? Acted upon? Another story.

      1. undeterredbyreality

        Wot!?! Too much? Too soon?

        I was gonna blame the downfister, but apparently I overstepped some secret snark boundary. Doesn't seem that far out of the pale compared to other comments, but…I guess y'all wanna make my p-ness shrink.

    3. tessiee

      "Have you ever been in some four-star hotel and thought, 'Eh, maybe I’ll rape somebody from the housekeeping staff'?"

      No! Absolutely not! The very question is deplorable!

      You didn't say anything about those tanned and slutty cabana boys on the beach, though.

      1. DaRooster

        Well… them Cabana Boys aren't easily appalled… "Can't rape the willing" and all that…

    4. GOPCrusher

      Be quite honest, I've never seen a member of the housekeeping staff that I would consider having sexual relations with, let alone rape.
      But I will steal their towels.

    Talk about your double standards! If it had been some rich lady having her way with Manuel the pool boy, the wimmens would be laughing about it in an ad for flavored instant coffee!

      Or that Manuel had lived his life in that fear.

    Were he in a Chinese hotel, the concierge would probably ask him right away if he wanted a woman. Otherwise, phone calls suggesting "massage?" would start pretty. Or if he couldn't wait, he could call the front desk and ask for "an extra blanket." In any case, the cleaning ladies would be safe.

    1. tessiee

      In my vocabulary, a seducer is a guy who takes you to nice places, compliments you, sends flowers, remembers what kind of books/movies are your favorite, and is generally thoughtful and charming. I don't know who thinks this creep is a seducer, but I'm betting that none of his victims do.

      1. HuddledMass

    As was biting Philip Seymour Hoffman's nose off and setting him on fire. Come to think of it, JLo's lucky to be alive!

    Just heard an update: He came out of the shower naked, the maid was in the room, he assaulted her there, drug her down the hall and did it again in the bathroom. No details on oral/anal, etc. at this point. Clearly she was asking for it, walking in on him naked & all like that.

    1. Limeylizzie

      Apparently he forced the maid to suck the old French coq. Sacre Bleu and what a merde, aussi

  40. OldWiseWizard

    The only good that can come of this is hopefully it'll prevent another creeptastic article where an American guy waxes poetic about how sophisticated the French are for not caring about silly shit like "consent". Probably not.

    But can you blame the guy? As has oft been sung:

    “Thank heaven for Hispanic maids
    For they clean your room in the most delightful way

    Those little eyes so helpless and appealing
    One day will flash and send your dick thru the ceiling”

    Now he has other allegations to contend with from a French journalist who was assaulted in 2007. Turns out she kept quiet because at the time she was DSK's daughter's best friend. Ahh, the French; who needs soap operas, when we have them around.

    Why do I get the feeling that Silvio Berlusconi would have done pretty much the same thing, and then said something like, "Eh, her tits were too small anyway"?

    1. Negropolis

      Burly's smarter than that. He just keeps dropping money on the floor until the girl says "yes." You know, 'cause the bastard's classy like that.

    Eet ees enough to make me want to move to a deserted subdivision of tract houses in zee Mojave Desert and search for zee elusive Monsieur "B."

    The problem with the help these days is that they are too uppity and will say no. No, don't rape me. No, i won't hide that body for you. Really, where has their sense of social norms gone?

    I thought Benny Hill had died. This is straight out of the Benny Hill show. I wonder if he put that music on, the music that always played when Benny would be chasing a chambermaid around the room?

  47. tessiee

    No, my problem was that for weeks afterward, I couldn't turn on a TV set or pick up a newspaper (hey, it was the olden days!), without being deluged with maudlin sentiment. The first time I saw a newspaper headline that said, "Car Crash Claims Diana", I thought, "Huh. That's too bad.". A week after that, I was so sick of all the coverage, I was ready to dig her up and kill her again.

  48. mumbly_joe

    Yeah, well, she was totally asking for it, all dressed in that provocative maid uniform.

    See, this is the thing I don't understand. You're chief of the IMF. You are, literally, in charge of all the money, for the world.

    Couldn't you, just, I dunno, pay for it? I know, I know, rape's about power, not just about sex, but again: head of the IMF. Whether this is about sex, power, or some hithertofore unheard-of combination of the two, it literally. makes. no. sense.

    "Have you ever been in some four-star hotel and thought, “Eh, maybe I’ll screw somebody from the housekeeping staff. Oh this girl looks nice, I'll do her. And I always get what I want and no one ever tells me 'no' and I'm not sure what that means because I always get what I want." Is this a normal thought, in the minds of the rich and the powerful?"

    Depends on the 'shroom I guess. My one-and-only peyote experience was very pleasant and mellow, but only after I barfed my guts out. Of course, for all I know I was eating artificially enhanced dried Safeway mushrooms.

  52. tessiee

    Notice how the *woman* with all the money in the world, i.e. Oprah, does *not* assault anybody; she goes shopping in Paris.
    I'm just sayin'.

  53. glamourdammerung

    I am not sure what the issue is as this seems to be how the IMF works in general.

  54. glamourdammerung

    The one thing that really perplexed me was the hotel issuing a statement that the maid had never had any discipline issues. I have had bad hotel employees before, and yet somehow raping them never came up as a means to complain about poor service.

    Ron Paul (on Fox News Sunday) says "These are the kind of people that are running the IMF and we want to turn the world finances and the control of the money supply to them."

    1. GeorgiaBurning

      As opposed to Ron Paul. Some choice. No wonder the Japanese stuff their cash into a box in the closet.

    2. ttommyunger

      Not pro-rapist, but doesn't this asshole get the benefit of the doubt, or at least a trial? Paul is a total dick.

  56. SaintRond

    If you don't want to get raped, then don't wear a maid's costume. There's absolutely no other reason to wear one. I bought my first one when I was 18 years old and it still fits perfectly!!!

  57. Wilcoxyz

    Stupid French. They think "service" is included in the price. You can tell because he didn't tip.

  58. Negropolis

    Ok, I'll say it. Give me some moar Segolene Royal, por favor.

    How fucking stupid do you have to be to attempt to rape someone as the front-runner for the French presidency? Stupid, nasty bastard.

  59. ttommyunger

    "…and another one bites the dust." Wonder if the "C" Street Crowd (Coburn-Santorum et. al.) will come to his aid?
