Dominique Strauss-Kahn Could Walk, Accuser's Credibility Questioned


The sexual assault case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn is on the verge of collapse as investigators have uncovered major holes in the credibility of the housekeeper who charged that he attacked her in his Manhattan hotel suite in May, according to two well-placed law enforcement officials.
Although forensic tests found unambiguous evidence of a sexual encounter between Mr. Strauss-Kahn, a French politician, and the woman, prosecutors do not believe much of what the accuser has told them about the circumstances or about herself.

It's important to maintain your credibility if you're going to accuse someone of rape even when there's "unambiguous evidence". Since DSK's accuser is seeking asylum, I wonder if her vanishing credibility will get her a one-way ticket back home. Wow. Just... wow.

Meanwhile, China's Xinhua is reporting that the IMF has moved on: First female IMF chief receives praise from former hometown of Chicago:

CHICAGO, June 28 (Xinhua) -- French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde made history Tuesday by becoming the first female managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and her appointment received wide praise in Chicago, where she once served as chairman of one of the world's largest law firms.

I knew he was probably innocent.
But he IS out of that job, after all. Now they have a real Chicago style lawyer witch to take his place.
It ALL smells like Rahm to me.
