Dominique Strauss-Kahn Pal Jean-Marie Le Guen Pretty Confident This Was A Set-Up

According to J-M LG: 1) Yes, DSK loves the ladies, but not in a rape-y way. 2) He ate lunch before going to the airport 3) You'd have to be on a serious acid trip to buy this storyline 4) Le Guen is a doctor, so, he knows what he's talking about.

Jean-Marie Le Guen, a Socialist party MP who has known Strauss-Kahn for 25 years, said the story was "not credible" and inconsistent with what he knew of the politician's character. "Seduction, yes, but no way would he use constraint or violence. A certain number of facts, and certain aspects of the story we are hearing from the press, make this not credible." He said Strauss-Kahn had not fled the scene of the alleged crime as reported but had lunched in New York before catching a flight booked weeks previously.

Le Guen said his friend knew he would be the target of mud-slinging but added: "What they are asking us to believe ... it's just hallucinations. I'm a doctor and I know this can happen. We knew there would be hyper-violent attacks on him [Strauss-Kahn]. We could hear the knives being sharpened in preparation."
