NY Post: Prosecutors Will Drop DSK Charges

From the New Post:

DA set to drop charges vs. DSK

Investigator: Dismissal a ‘certainty’

July 5, 2011

… Prosecutors will agree to drop the charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn — either on his next court date in two weeks or even sooner, according to a top investigator in the case who called the eventual dismissal "a certainty." "We all know this case is not sustainable," the source told The Post exclusively yesterday.

"Her credibility is so bad now, we know we cannot sustain a case with her," the source said, referring to the Guinean hotel maid who accused Strauss-Kahn of trying to rape her in his plush Midtown hotel suite..

"She is not to be believed in anything that comes out of her mouth — which is a shame, because now we may never know what happened in that hotel room," said the source, who is at the center of the investigation and would speak only on the condition of anonymity

Meanwhile, defense sources described a different scenario, in which DSK admittedly engaged with the maid in a consensual, sex-for-money exchange in his Sofitel suite, with no force involved — and she turned against him only when he stiffed her.

So to speak.

"In the past, guests have left stuff for her," meaning money, one source close to the defense investigation said last night. "She goes back to look for the money," and is disappointed, the source said. Also likely irking the maid? "His dismissive nature," said the source.

Multiple investigators for the defense and prosecution have confirmed that they believe the maid was turning tricks at the hotel, and prosecution sources have even accused her of continuing to "entertain" male visitors while in a DA safehouse

It’s hard to keep a good woman down. But isn’t she reported to be a devout Muslim?

Meanwhile yesterday, French lawyers for Strauss-Kahn promised to fight back with criminal charges of their own against a French writer who claims he tried to rape her nearly a decade ago.

Tristane Banon has accused the French banker of behaving like a "rutting chimpanzee" and allegedly yanking open her bra and attempting to get into her pants during a 2002 interview

What is it about these kind of stories that brings up the most colorful similes?

For six weeks, the maid told investigators a credible and compelling story about her travails of rape and beatings in escaping Guinea’s violent regime, and about her alleged re-victimization last month by Strauss-Kahn. "One-hundred-percent consistent," one top investigator called her first month-and-a-half of statements. "Rock solid," another top investigator said.

Only eight days ago did the maid’s story fall apart, according to two top investigators on the case..

Officials realized that for six weeks, ever since the May 14 incident, she had bamboozled some of the best minds in the storied Manhattan DA’s Office

There are none so blind as those who want to see things their own way.

    We’re living under a tyranny of incompetence and ineptitude beyond anything ever seen in America. It’s difficult not to see malice in it. There’s never been a blunder of such magnitude in the US justice system, and this is just the latest of many. When France sues the City of New York, how much do you think they’ll ask for? Can they possibly lose? It’s only a question of how much the citizens will have to fork over as a result of their idiot District Attorney.

    There are three indictments due to our Ruling Class, and the GOP is not exempt:
    1) Reckless endangerment
    2) Depraved indifference
    3) Implied malice

    Damages don’t have to be proved for these to stick, but we can show massive damages to our people and the nation.

    And here I thought young men being “like a rutting chimpanzee” was normal.

    I suspect the problem is more about the object of one’s affection not being in the same rut.

    Let’s assume the “best” case scenario here: the Guinean immigrant ho (for the sake of brevity, GIHO) let’s herself in DSK’s room and they engage in consensual sex. (assuming they engaged in something other than oral sex because we all know oral sex isn’t really se………..oh never mind!)

    How is it that a man of this guy’s position allows himself to get so casually involved?

    He’s obviously been down this road before. Have decisions he’s made in the course of his work at the IMF been compromised by sexual liaisons?

    If so, how so??

    What led the GIHO to believe she could…..ahem, pull this off with this individual??

    We still have far more questions in the matter than we do answers

    “In the past, guests have left stuff for her”……..

    He left his cell phone. Talk about looking a gift horse in the mouth!
