The Sofitel Cleaning Woman Wasn't Dominique Strauss-Kahn's First Choice

As you more than likely know by now, the (very) recently resigned IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is awaiting trial for the alleged sexual assault of a Sofitel maid over the weekend. At this time there are of course many unanswered questions, though slowly but surely, various details are coming out helping us to put the puzzle together. Today, for instance, a Newsweek reporter informs us that the maid? Got the raw end of the stick after DSK, apparently in heat, had already been rebuffed by at least one other target.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn allegedly was looking for love, or at least his version of it, from the moment he checked into his hotel in New York City last Friday, May 13. As soon as he got to his suite, 2806, he called back down to the front desk and asked the receptionist if she would like to join him for a drink, according to sources familiar with the prosecution’s case against the former head of the International Monetary Fund and contender for the presidency of France. The receptionist demurred.

Was the receptionist the only one to turn down DSK's advances? Highly unlikely, as you don't strike out once and then rape the next body within arm's reach. In fact, we're going to posit that Strauss-Kahn spent the week getting the shot down left and right before the maid encounter. Herewith, an accounting of people he (probably) tried and failed to get his freak on with before (allegedly) taking it too far:

* The room service guy

* The bellhop

* The in-hotel masseuse

* The person who monitors the dispensing of towels by the pool

* The guy who gives out Metro by the subway

* The guy who gives out AM New York by the subway

* The Port Authority regulars

* The cocktail waitress at the Olive Garden in Time Square (whose spurning of his advances he did not take well, shouting "I thought that when I'm here I'm family, bitch!" before leaving in a huff)

* The woman at the TKTS window booth

* The cast of Mamma Mia!

* Everyone he contacted from Casual Encounters

* Those people who ask "do you like comedy shows?"

* The hookers at The Point
