Not sure if this should go in US or France but put it here. M. Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the head of the International Monetary Fund was arrested Saturday for sexually assaulting a hotel employee who came into his room. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/15/nyregion/imf-head-is-arrested-and-accused-of-sexual-attack.html?partner=rss&emc=rss IMF chief accused of sex attack on hotel maid - World - CBC News What is interesting is that the man is apparently considered a leading candidate for next year's presidential elections. It appears that the NYPD Special Victims Unit is investigating. Reading the stories it does not look good for the man. Also, it appears he is a Socialist candidate but was staying in a $3,000 per night hotel room. I have gone on entire vacations for less than that.
