Top French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn dragged off flight at JFK, accused of sodomizing maid

A top French politician nicknamed "the great seducer" was dragged off a flight at Kennedy Airport Saturday after he was accused of sodomizing a Manhattan hotel maid, sources said.

Port Authority cops grabbed Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the head of the International Monetary Fund and a presidential hopeful in France, moments before his Air France plane took off about 4:45 p.m.

Strauss-Kahn, 62, allegedly crept up behind a maid after she entered his room and forced her to perform oral sex on him, sources said.

The woman broke free and ran out of the room. Strauss-Khan quickly headed for the airport, sources said.

Charges against Strauss-Kahn, who is married to well-known French TV journalist Anne Sinclair, were pending Saturday night, sources said.

Hours before Strauss-Kahn was pulled from the flight, a close Socialist Party ally claimed he was the target of a smear campaign by French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

The head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, has been charged by New York police over an alleged sex attack on a hotel maid.

Mr Strauss-Kahn, 62, was taken off an Air France plane at JFK airport just minutes before it left for Paris.

Police say he faces three charges, including attempted rape. His lawyers say he denies the claims.

The married former French finance minister is also considered a possible Socialist candidate for the presidency.

diplomatic immunity

Here's hoping he doesn't get off on that. Reading the story, the maid was treated at the hospital for minor injuries. Plus it doesn't look good that he was leaving so quickly that he left his phone and other personal articles behind in the hotel room.



The married former French finance minister is also considered a possible Socialist candidate for the presidency.
The BBC's Hugh Schofield, in Paris, says Mr Strauss-Kahn has been riding high in the polls and was seen as having a genuine chance of beating President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Martine Aubry, leader of France's Socialist Party, described news of his arrest as a "thunderbolt" which left her "astounded

Not any more, but who knows? Maybe the French electorate will think its cool and he'll gain in the polls. :rolleyes:

Nothing will happen to him.

With the French, who the heck knows. I'm afraid you'll be right, SLW. They will think it's cool and vote him in. Plus Sarcozy has lost a lot of support.

The French had to withdraw his diplomatic immunity so that he could be arrested, so I don't see them giving it back.

Persons traveling under diplomatic passports or who are assigned to embassies or consulates are immune to prosecution in the countries that they are assigned to. The IMF isn't a nation, has no embassies or consulates and shouldn't enjoy diplomatic immunity. If it did, they would not have been able to detain him.

IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn's arrest costs Europe key ally in Greek debt talks

The former French finance minister had been a key ally for the European Union as Greece, Ireland and Portugal sought billion pound bail-outs to pay their debts. Europe's finance ministers will meet in Brussels Monday to hammer out the final details of a €78bn IMF-backed bail-out for Portugal and discuss further funding for Greece. Mr Strauss-Kahn was due to brief German chancellor Angela Merkel on Sunday as well as attend meetings in Brussels. Economists said his absence came at a sensitive time. Concerns grow that Greece will fail IMF-imposed targets to qualify for June's €3.3bn payment from last year's €110bn...

There are some personal touches that we can all do without, especially when they involve the bodily fluids of tubby, elderly French political hacks. Being sexually assaulted by the head of the IMF, after being taxed to bail out the economies of wastrel states throughout the world, is just a variation on the theme.

Are they going to give a kiss after;)

He strikes me as the kind of guy who would not give a reach-around.

IMF accuser in apt. for HIV vics



The IMF chief's alleged sex-assault victim lives in a Bronx apartment rented exclusively for adults with HIV or AIDS, The Post has learned.

The hotel maid, a West African immigrant, has occupied the fourth-floor High Bridge pad with her 15-year-old daughter since January -- and before that, lived in another Bronx apartment set aside by Harlem Community AIDS United strictly for adults with the virus and their families.
