We have reported already on the arrest of IMF head, and prominent luxury living socialist, Dominique Strauss-Kahn. The latest news is that he has faced court, charged with attempted rape, sex abuse, a criminal sex act, unlawful imprisonment and forcible touching. This is around 25 years worth. He was remanded without bail, the US justice system having wised up a bit since Roman Polanski.
Now there is a prominent new twist to the story, he is also one of the HuffPo blogging team. His profile page is here, although it has not been updated to include the last week and the RSS feed is not updating.
Interesting revelation at Huffington Post today about International Monetary Fund managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn facing charges stemming from an alleged sexual assault involving a hotel maid.
"Strauss-Kahn has blogged for HuffPost," the story reads, nine paragraphs deep. Well, that certainly catches a reader's attention.
Turns out the prominent French socialist has blogged at HuffPo at least a dozen times over the last eighteen months, including four posts this year. Most recently, on March 31, Strauss-Kahn wrote about China's economy and the international monetary system. All of his posts, linked here, have been on economics.
Another HuffPo story on Strauss-Kahn described him as a married father of four "whose reputation with women earned him the nickname 'the great seducer.' " The story also revealed that a woman in France who alleges she was sexually assaulted by Strauss-Kahn nine years ago "now wants to file a legal complaint against the IMF head." Liberal economist Bob Kuttner quickly assured HuffPo readers that "even before this latest scandal broke, Strauss-Kahn didn't seem like much of a socialist."
