Okay, so the head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss Kahn, has been accused of attempted rape and forced unnamed sexual acts by a housekeeper at a hotel in New York City. Whether he did it or not will be found in a court of law, as long as they can keep him from "doing a Polanski" and heading off to France, where the United States has no extradition treaty (there is also some talk of diplomatic immunity, which would be a very bad thing, I think).
Of course there are now women (and I'm sure that there will be plenty of them) who are now hitting the airwaves with their own story of the 'Hot Rabbit' also known as DSK pulling a move with them as well.
So a couple of things occurred to me about this story. 1) Why would anyone call someone a 'Chaud Lapin' or 'Hot Rabbit' and 2) why is a money guy such a rock star that he's known by his initials? And there's a very big third item: he happened to be running on the Socialist ticket for the French Presidency with a good shot at the prize.
Another article I read have pegged him as a womanizer and a 'reflection of the French culture' (Yick!) It also seems that this socialist guy lived pretty large for someone who dictates terms of austerity to entire countries.
Like I said, if this makes it to court, they'll decide his guilt or innocence, unless he takes in on the lam. IMO now, where there's smoke, there's likely to be a roasting bunny, but in any case, he's probably not a threat to Sarkozy anymore.
