HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's time for Crisis at a Glance!!! Special French edition. Oo-la-la.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn… do you remember Dominique Strauss-Kahn? The head of the International Monetary Fund? Who stepped down as head of the International Monetary Fund? After a New York hotel worker accused him of rape?
The charges were dropped, and a civil suit was settled out of court… for a sizable monetary fund.
But Dominique Strauss-Kahn's libidinous legal limbo continued. The man who thought he was on a fast track to the presidency of France faces other charges. He went to a party full of prostitutes. Strauss-Kahn admits going, but denies knowing they were ladies of the second shift. French law permits prostitution but bars solicitation, so a conviction would be tricky.
But it's quite a comedown for a once high-flying official to be sitting in a courtroom next to a sex club owner and a disgraced former police chief. And what is Strauss-Kahn doing professionally these days?
Advising Serbia on its finances.
Which brings us to the thrilling conclusion of another, Crisis at a Glance!!!
