COMMENT 199 continued:
I wanted to share this that I ran across about DSK since my last comment so that we have the same info. as much as possible: http://worldnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/03/26/10873102-strauss-kahn-handed-preliminary-charges-in-prostitution-probe
The article talks a little more about the operation, as in how it was financed and DSK's connections and possible role. "Judges had the option of putting him under investigation for having potentially benefited from misappropriated company funds if he knowingly attended prostitute sessions paid for by his executive friends using expense accounts." The article mentions that "In itself, using prostitutes is not illegal in France."
Last, but of course not least, "The maid, an immigrant from Guinea, has insisted she was truthful about the encounter and is pursuing claims against Strauss-Kahn in a civil lawsuit. A hearing is set for Wednesday on Strauss-Kahn's claim that diplomatic immunity should insulate him from the lawsuit. Strauss-Kahn is not expected to attend."
