    "I hear the "it's all an anti-Semitic plot" chorus warming up in the wings." :lol:

    NEW YORK (AP) - The leader of the International Monetary Fund and a possible candidate for president of France was arrested Sunday in the violent sexual assault of a hotel maid after being yanked from an airplane moments before it was to depart for Paris, police said.

    Dominique Strauss-Kahn, 62, was arrested on charges of a criminal sex act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment and was awaiting arraignment. He had been taken off the Air France flight at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday afternoon by officers from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and was turned over to New York police, said Paul J. Browne, New York Police Department spokesman.

    His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, did not immediately respond to phone or email messages left by The Associated Press. "We have not yet been able to meet with our client and we may have more to say tomorrow," Brafman told The New York Times late Saturday.

    Gee, why would you hear that?
    In this country someone is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Does Strauss-kahn have a history of molesting women? He isn't Silvio Berlusconi ya know.

    Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been living like a king. He is a French economist, lawyer, and politician, and a member of the Socialist Party of France. He claims he is a former Communist. He is the International Monetary Fund Chief and has been spending $3,000 a night for a Midtown Manhattan hotel suite and flying 1st class back around the world. How can a socialist public servant afford such a lavish life? Strauss-Kahn earns about $420,000 a year in salary, plus pension contributions and generous benefits. He receives an additional $75,000 in living expenses. Per his contract Strauss-Kahn charges all "reasonable expenses" incurred including entertaining and meeting with politicians. Struass is reimbursed for all travel expenses and per his contract must always fly first class.

    Is he a Capitalist CEO or a Socialist? Not sure which lives better?

    Strauss-Kahn was yanked out of his 1st class seat while waiting to fly out of a New York City airport back to Paris. He is being charged with sexual assault, forcible confinement, and attempted rape of a maid who was cleaning his hotel room. He was refused bail and is awaiting his next court appearance.

    Strauss-Kahn has been lobbying the US for cash to bail out all the European Socialist countries who are failing do to Socialism. The USA has given billions of dollars in US aid to help bailing out this European Socialist countries

    You Democrats aka Socialist have a lot of explaining to do?

    For starters, why are we having to bail out European Socialist countries for the same policies Democrats are trying to implement in America? Is this our future. Is this the future you want?

    Margaret Thatcher was right 'The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money'?

    Yeah because you know how socialism encourages masters of the universe to molest chambermaids, right?

    Soon he will get to learn about rape from the receiving end.

    Karma is a bitch.

    As to the guy's politics... Well I am glad he is not a republican. Politics really don't matter much here.

    Well since you are slow, there are three issues here:

    1. Socialism bankrupts countries

    2. Socialist leaders live as high on the hog as CEOs

    3. Rape

    Once again a leftwinger has chosen to ignore #1 and #2. and continues to talk about how everyone is getting fvcked. How typical
