Former IMF chief and man who did not win the French presidency Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been charged with “aggravated pimping,” because of course he was.
DSK, as he is known, had been the frontrunner to win the presidency, when his campaign was derailed by an arrest for super-raping a New York hotel maid. This caused many French people to be horrified that important people were not treated with proper Respect. At the time, another French women came forward to say he had tried to rape her as well. (The New York case was dismissed when police realized that only perfect virgins can be raped.)
The prostitution probe, nicknamed the “Carlton Affair” by the French press, kicked off in October.
It centers around the city of Lille, where investigators began looking into claims that luxury hotels, including the Carlton, served as a base for a high-profile prostitution network.
In December, Strauss-Kahn’s attorney, Henri Leclerc, acknowledged in an interview with radio station Europe1 that his client attended sex parties, but said Strauss-Kahn was unaware the women in attendance were prostitutes.
Of course he was unaware the women were prostitutes. DSK is balls-deep in free muff 23-6. (He takes off the Lord’s Day, for his wife.)
