The Side-Eye: Former “Future French President” Strauss-Kahn’s Lawyers Are Saying Sex With The Maid Was Consensual

- By Bossip Staff

That dirty French old man had a busy day yesterday.

First, Dominique Strauss-Kahn begged and copped pleas to be let out Riker’s Island. Then, once they found out that NYPD was testing some DNA they found on a piece of carpet, Strauss-Khan quit his job and his attorney’s pretty much admitted that Strauss-Khan had sex with his accuser.

New York detectives and prosecutors believe the carpet in the hotel room may contain Strauss-Kahn’s semen, spat out after an episode of forced oral sex by a hotel maid, the officials told The Associated Press.

Late Wednesday, Strauss-Kahn resigned as managing director of the International Monetary Fund, according to a letter released by its executive board.

In the letter, Strauss-Kahn denied the allegations but said he felt compelled to resign with “great sadness” because he was thinking of his family and also wanted to protect the IMF.

Strauss-Kahn, jailed at Rikers Island since Monday, made a second appeal for bail earlier Wednesday and proposed to be confined to his daughter’s Manhattan home 24 hours a day with electronic monitoring. He was set for another hearing Thursday afternoon.

The French politician said in court papers that he had surrendered his passport and wouldn’t flee the country. “I do not intend to leave the United States of America without the permission of the New York Court,” he said.

One of the officials said that the DNA testing was being “fast-tracked” but that the results could still be a few days away.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly declined to comment Wednesday on the details of the evidence-gathering but said results of any DNA and other testing have not yet come back. He said the detectives investigating the case found the maid’s story believable.

“Obviously, the credibility of the complainant is a factor in cases of this nature,” Kelly said. “One of the things they’re trained to look for, and what was reported to me early on, was that the complainant was credible.”

One of Strauss-Kahn’s attorneys, Benjamin Brafman, said at his client’s arraignment this week that the forensic evidence “will not be consistent with a forcible encounter.” That led to speculation the defense would argue it was consensual sex.

The woman’s lawyer, Jeffrey Shapiro, has dismissed suggestions from some of Strauss-Kahn’s defenders that she made up the charges or tried to cover up a consensual encounter.

In court papers filed Wednesday, Strauss-Kahn’s attorneys proposed posting $1 million cash bail and confining him to the home of his daughter, Camille, a Columbia University graduate student, 24 hours a day with electronic monitoring.

You know, for some reason we’re pretty sure that the man who can afford a cool mil in cash for bail probably won’t have to hard of a time making his way to a country with no extradition arrangement with the U.S.

    They’re saying the electronic card reader to the door shows she used her card to open the door to the suite but she never closed it. Maids are instructed to clean the rooms and leave the door of the room open while cleaning; and since the door was never closed, the defense is saying it’s clear she entered the room with the intention to work, not to have sex. (I’m pretty sure there are cameras everywhere, too. They can most likely see how she came out the suite and on the elevator. If it was a set up, she’d put on her act once she got downstairs, not run out the suite all traumatized…)

    To the idiot folks who believe this whole “situation” was a set-up-

    how does this fit in with the conspiracy? Or is DSK’s backpedalling part of the plan too?

    Shame on you people who think that animal is innocent.
