    The Associated Press: AP source: Accuser issues shake Strauss-Kahn case

    By JENNIFER PELTZ, Associated Press – 4 hours ago
    NEW YORK (AP) — Questions that have surfaced about the credibility of a hotel housekeeper who has accused former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn of raping her are leading prosecutors to seek a reduction in his pricey bail, a person familiar with the case said Thursday.
    The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss matters not yet made public in court, told The Associated Press that prosecutors have raised issues about the accuser's credibility in the case against Strauss-Kahn, but would not elaborate on what those issues were.
    A separate law enforcement official who is familiar with the case, but not authorized to speak about it publicly, told the AP that the issue was not necessarily about the rape accusation itself, but about troubling questions surrounding the alleged victim's background that could damage her credibility on the witness stand. The official refused to elaborate.

    I knew this dude would skate. I predicted that right from the beginning. Way too many very very powerful forces are at work on this one. He'll get away with everything. Bet on it.
