This DSK character ain’t sh*t:
The mother of Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s French accuser revealed late yesterday that she had a “consensual but brutal” sexual encounter of her own with the former IMF chief, around three years before her daughter’s alleged rape. Anne Mansouret, who was questioned by investigators last week, told French news magazine L’Express that she kept quiet about her own ordeal until 2003, when her journalist daughter Tristane Banon first claimed she was attacked by the then-Socialist lawmaker in a Paris apartment.
Mansouret, a senior official in the same Socialist Party, advised Banon against going to the police, but she also confided in a close friend, Brigitte Guillemette, who was none other than Strauss-Kahn’s second ex-wife. According to Mansouret, Guillemette confronted her ex-husband, during which he confessed, “I don’t know what got into me. I slept with the mother … I blew a fuse when I saw the daughter.”
Guillemette denied the conversation ever took place, when contacted by L’Express. Mansouret also told the newspaper that when she later met Strauss-Kahn at a bar, he apologized for his behavior, saying he did not intend to harm her daughter. However, he seemed untroubled about the possibility of a rape complaint being filed, she said. Strauss-Kahn is currently on bail in the US on charges that he raped a New York hotel maid May 14. His lawyers say the case against him has largely crumbled. The accusation led directly to his resignation as head of the International Monetary Fund, and the resurfacing of Banon’s rape accusation back home in Paris.
