Not to worry that Dominique Strauss-Kahn will suffer unduly as he awaits his rape trial in New York. The former IMF chief/putative Socialist French presidential candidate is comfortably ensconced in a Tribeca location that, according to The Independent, “is a detached four-bedroom townhouse, complete with a gym, home theatre and steam spa bath, for sale at an asking price of $14m (£8.6m) and renting for $50,000 a month.”
Meanwhile, the alleged victim is adding legal help in anticipation of an attack on her reputation by the defense team. Although her name has appeared widely abroad, as is the custom in the US, her name has been withheld by the domestic press, creating something of mystery about her identity. NOTE: The woman in the photo below is NOT the accuser.
