The Lynx Effect
So justice finally seems to be catching up with Dominique Straus-Khan - or DSK for short.
The famous French 'socialist' politician and former head of the IMF - has been charged by the authorities in France over his alleged involvement in an organised prostitution ring - see post below from 22 February 2012.
Meanwhile the chambermaid - Nafissatou Diallo - whom DSK is alleged to have sexually assaulted in a swanky New York hotel - has begun civil proceedings over the incident.
DSK (62) admits there was an 'incident' by the way - but that it was completely consensual - presumably because the chambermaid was simply overwhelmed (while at work) by the well known charms of this irresistible French lothario.
Now I would have thought that a 'man of the world' like DSK - would find it slightly odd that he walks into a 'party' with naked women all around - just dying to meet him.
But apparently not - apparently this happens all the time to DSK.
I wonder what his secret is - maybe he's been taking those TV adverts too seriously - you know the ones I mean?
The one where the chap covers himself with Lynx body spray - and all the women around just can't help themselves.
Watch the following You Tube clip and decide for yourself - maybe DSK will use this in his defence:
I can't wait to see.
Charming Old Goat (22 February 2012)
Dominique Strauss-Kahn (DSK) - the old goat who was until recently head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington - was questioned yesterday by French police as a suspect in a prostitution ring inquiry.
In a far cry from his glory days DSK - at one time favourite to become the socialist candidate in the French presidential elections - was held in custody at a police station in Lille.
Police have already interviewed a number of prostitutes - who have admitted having sex with DSK - but this man of the world and notorious womaniser insists he did not know that the women were prostitutes.
Strauss Khan's lawyer - issued a preposterous challenge to the ranks of the media who were there to witness yet another DSK fall from grace:
"I challenge you to distinguish a naked prostitute from any other naked woman" - lawyer Henri Leclerc told French television.
Charming is what I would say to that - and completely disingenuous of course - as if DSK had stumbled unexpectedly and innocently into a organised prostitution ring.
Because what else did he think was going on - why else would a strange and presumably attractive young woman - start taking of her clothes in front of 62-year-old DSK - unless she was being handsomely paid.
Maybe he likes to delude himself that his amazing wit and repartee - left the ladies spellbound and meant they found him utterly irresistible.
But he should try telling that to his wife - Anne Sinclair - to whom he has been happily married for years - allegedly.
Strauss-Kahn resigned as head of the IMF in May last year - after he was charged with the attempted rape of a hotel maid in New York.
The criminal charges were subsequently dropped by prosecutors - but the woman involved has vowed to bring a civil suit.
