Dominique Strauss-Kahn: The Managing Director Of The IMF Might Attend A Dozen Sex Parties, Sure, But Pose For Pictures With Women He Knows To Be Prostitutes? Come On Now

Somehow this is supposed to be part of his defense.

A prostitute who said that seeing a picture of Dominique Strauss-Kahn tore her up inside because he forced her to perform sex acts on him, posed for a “smiling” photo with him months later in Washington. Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, told the French court where he is accused of aggravated pimping, that the photo proved that he wasn’t aware that the women was a prostitute. “The managing director of the IMF doesn’t take a photo in his Washington office with a young lady he knows to be a prostitute,” the 65-year-old Strauss-Kahn said on his second day of testimony in Lille, France, Wednesday. “I wouldn’t have taken that risk.” [Bloomberg, earlier]
