Rank has its privileges. Let's see what happens with this one.

Quote:
The French political bigshot who heads the International Monetary Fund was arrested for allegedly sodomizing a Manhattan hotel maid today — hauled off an Air France flight just moments before takeoff from Kennedy Airport, police said.

Three Port Authority detectives pulled Dominique Strauss-Kahn from the plane’s first-class cabin just two minutes before it was due to depart for Paris, according to police sources said.

Strauss-Kahn, 62 — who was expected to challenge Nicholas Sarkozy in the 2012 French presidential election — was turned over to NYPD officers and brought to the Special Victims Unit’s uptown squadroom.

The trouble began around noon, when a 32-year-old housekeeper entered Strauss-Kahn’s room at the Sofitel on West 44th Street — apparently unaware he was still inside.

The married Strauss-Kahn was in his bathroom, said sources. He emerged naked, grabbed her and "he jumps her," a source said.

Then, Strauss-Kahn allegedly threw the housekeeper on the room’s bed and forced her to perform oral sex on him, said the sources.

The maid managed to break free and ran to a hotel worker to tell what happened, said a source. Soon afterward, Strauss-Kahn got dressed and headed off to Kennedy Airport for his flight to Paris.

When he was approached on the plane by Port Authority cops, he said, "What is this about?" sources said. He was then taken off without handcuffs.

Two law enforcement sources said Strauss-Kahn was trying to flee the US. Police said he left his cellphone and other personal items in the room.

Strauss-Kahn, who had a meeting planned for today with German chancellor Angela Merkel, has a special arrangement with Air France that allows him to get on any flight and sit in first class, the sources said. He was traveling alone.

The NYPD’s Special Victims Unit is investigating the case, the sources said.


Strauss-Kahn, a serial offender, is a leader of France’s Socialist Party and figured to be Sarkozy's main competition in the next Presidential election.

I say, he walks away with a slap on the wrist.

In France the only applicable charges would be for 'room service' on the hotel bill.

Good riddance to bad rubbish. WTF was a hardcore socialist doing heading the IMF anyway?!

There may be a dark side here.

Actually, nobody should be that shocked ... given the nature of bankers, these days. Buccaneers would be more like it, now that central and merchant banking have formed such a cabal. Monrty Python gives us as good a rendition of events as ever appeared in the popular press.

But Mr. DSK was in New York furthering plans to replace the US dollar with IMF special drawing rights -- ???? -- as the 'reserve currency'. This is important stuff about which the elites try to keep such sods as us in the dark. Let's just say, these are decisions that will affect the prosperity of North America -- particularly in our largest market -- in a fundamental and negative way. Another way of putting it -- $5 a liter gasoline.

I may be letting my imagination wander into Tom Clancy land, but could this be an Obama-esque way to sabotage the plot? After all, any guy who can bunk in $3,000 a night hotel rooms surely can phone up Spitzer for a phone number? And would the IMF let its chief honcho travel without a small praetorian guard of high foreheads to keep him in check?

Just saying ... there may be more to this than meets the eye.

There's an old Chinese saying ... may you live in surreal times.

Yeah you kind of have to figure that all of these top officials are not "clean" people; meaning that if they behave in a certain way that goes against the status quo then their sordid lifestyles are going to act in a public manner to remove them from the scene. It's not clear what he was doing in New York as he was due to meet with Merkel today, and the IMF headquarters is in DC. Fishy.

With that said, I think this case is either going to get off on a technicality or the fact that he was caught essentially fleeing may act very unfavorably for DSK's not guilty plea. We'll find out more after the arraignment today.

They have 'forensic evidence' -- you know, the wet stuff in a tissue. Lots of witnesses saw her rush out of the room, upset and dishevelled. She picked him out of a lineup.

His tailor is fitting him for an orange jump-suit now.

I still think he'll walk. He certainly would in Canada.

It's all so complicated with him being an international figure of such importance. I say avoid all the cross-jurisdictional spaghetti and ship his ass to Guantanamo.
