Head of IMF questioned in sex assault investigation

Dominique Strauss-Khan, the head of the International Monetary Fund, is being questioned by police in connection with the alleged sexual assault of a 32-year-old housekeeping employee at a Times Square hotel, New York Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne told CNN Saturday.

A former French finance minister, national legislator and economics professor in Paris, Dominique Strauss-Kahn became the IMF's 10th managing director in November 2007.

      No, because he is so important, the NY Police would NEVER have arrested him unless they had a very sure, solid case against him.

    Did you know the house keeper? Were you ever alone with the young lady? Did you at any point rub against her or touch her in any way? Will you be willing to give us a sample of your DNA?

    Being a VIP has nothing to do with it. Some people have impeccable profesional lives and live a messed up personal life.

    CNN, please don't overload us with lenghty news articles that report all the details.

    Does it look like that ole git has dyed his eyebrows black? Or has the photo been shopped to make the ole git look younger? It's kind of creepy looking...

    I shall doubt this housekeeper's story until she proves it.
    A naĂŻve housekeeper who thought she saw money once tried to play a game like that with me until the management told her that she should be careful. I don't think I'd ever even seen her.
    The head of the IMF could have the hottest call girl in town–or a bunch of them–sent up at any intervals he chose throughout the day.
    Do you think that Strauss-Kahn picked his housekeeper?
    Maybe he has fantasies about housekeepers.
    I have fantasies about...glamorous women...movie stars...yeah...

      What she wants does NOT matter to the NY Police. In such a high profile case as this, they must have an air-tight, for sure case against him. They would NEVER have arrested him otherwise & risk terrible embarrassment for the USA.
