Dominique Strauss-Kahn Came To New York For Love

As you've likely heard, serious questions about the credibility of Dominique Strauss-Kahn's alleged victim have suggested criminal charges against the former IMF chief may be dropped. Since he was accused of sexually assaulting a Sofitel maid, several French news outlets have and continue to stress the important distinction between being "a seducer" and "a rapist," DSK falling into the former category. Want more proof? To further the point, one magazine reported over the weekend that Strauss-Kahn bagged himself a bunch of ladies during his New York trip, as part of his plan de-stress before running for president

DSK confessed to his wife he "had" a trio of lovers as he blew off steam before the French presidential race, according to an unnamed friend of spouse Anne Sinclair, who was quoted in Le Point magazine. "So, it wasn't just one for the road before the presidential campaign," Sinclair's friend said. "It was three." Sinclair, who celebrated her 63rd birthday Friday with DSK in the Berkshires, has never believed her horny husband uses anything but charm to lure the ladies.

The frisky Frenchman was apparently a man on a mission when he arrived in Manhattan on May 13. After checking in, he tried to coax a hotel receptionist up to his suite for champagne, but she declined.
The sexed-up Socialist had better luck with another woman hours before the alleged attack. That woman -- described by Post sources as a secret girlfriend who works in banking -- was seen on surveillance video at the Sofitel with Strauss-Kahn around 1:30 a.m. on May 14. They rode the elevator up to his floor, and she left around 3 a.m.

It's unclear who the other two women were though the cocktail waitress at the Olive Garden in Time Square and the teller at the TKTS window booth are serious possibilities.
