This is the case of the hotel housekeeper, being sexually assaulted by the former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, which seems to be taking a turn in his favor. It seemed like an air-tight case against him, when his semen was found all over the hotel room and he was quickly escorted off an Air France plane by police at Kennedy International Airport.
The defense lawyers have been working hard to discredit the hotel housekeeper and prove her story to be false. It seems she was capable of giving different accounts of important facts in her life. Remember, she is also an immigrant from Guinea, where she fled that country because she had been raped and abused.
She may have embellished her application for asylum in the United States so not to return to Guinea. She also did not know that her boyfriend, now in an Arizona detention center was a drug dealer. Freed without bail or home confinement, Strauss-Kahn left the New York State Supreme Court with his wife, Anne Sinclair.
