The head of the IMF is behind bars right now

Talk about a fall from grace.

The head of the International Monetary Fund is behind bars right now at Rikers Island prison.

He is accused of a violent sexual assault and pressure for him to resign is mounting.

We wanted to know what Dominque Strauss-Kahn is likely to endure in prison and how the case will play out.

So we called on prominent defense attorney Paul Callan for some answers.

    I think the question that should be asked is what was the maid doing in a room at night, house keeping is not done at night and if he didnt request for room service why was she there,hotel staff cant just go into rooms if there have nothing doing there.This is very outrageous and its all a setup,why should the maid be scared if she knows she is doing the right?

      Hello...it happened around noon, not at night...Nevertheless, theres are a lot of questions without good answers (see my post) . I am French and I know that our prez is able to order this kind of KGB like operations to get rid of the future winner of the next french elections. Ego ego...Know that Sofiter = Accor= CEO D.Hennquin = friend of the prez. Do we need Sherlock Holmes spirit to explain us what is going on here ?;-D

    The 2 only questions I would appreciate to have an answer is : if the rules of the sofitel impose to the maids to ALWAYS come at 2 and NOT before the official green light of the check out, what on Earth was doing this beautiful afriacan woman there alone ??? Also, I heard the pictue of DSk was displayed to the attention of the personal as all the VIPs. How can she pretend she didn't know who he was ?
    Thanks to ask these 2 interesting questions to his lawyer !
