What a public relations headache. As if the Sofitel Hotel “kiss and tell” alleged rape of a NYC maid wasn’t enough of a spotlight for Dominique Strauss-Kahn, now, he’s really gone and done it. The French law is on his tail for running a prostitution ring. Did the former IMF chief ever think he’d see the adjective “pimp” before his name? I bet he thought he’d see the title President much sooner.
Though prostitution is not illegal in France, this is way beyond Jimmy Carter’s “lusting in his heart.”
DSK’s lawyer said, “Everyone can say whatever they want about the moral side of things. But that doesn’t mean it’s forbidden anywhere in the penal code.” Maybe that should be penile code.
