Strauss-Kahn to be questioned over alleged prostitution ring

Dominique Strauss Khan, the former International Monetary Fund chief, is scheduled to be questioned Tuesday by authorities investigating an alleged prostitution ring operating out of two hotels in France.

Last year, Strauss-Khan urged police to question him, saying it would help clear his name.

At the time, his attorneys released a statement saying Strauss-Khan wanted to address the so-called "media lynching" that he says falsely links him to sex parties with prostitutes in Europe and the United States.

The investigation kicked off in October and centered around the northern French city of Lille, where investigators began looking into claims that luxury hotels served as a base for a high-profile prostitution network.

    Yeah, right... He is innocent of everything. It is just an amazing coincidence that everything happens to be sex-related.

      Of course! We are one big, happy fleet! Ah, Kirk, my old friend, do you know the Klingon proverb that tells us revenge is a dish that is best served cold?

      It is very cold in space!
