LIKE TAXES, bourgeois sexual morality is for little people.
The head of the International Monetary Fund was charged early Sunday in connection with the alleged sexual assault of a housekeeper at a Manhattan hotel Saturday, a New York police spokesman said.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn, 62, who had been removed from a Paris-bound flight in New York minutes before takeoff Saturday, was questioned by the New York Police Department’s special victims office and arrested at 2:15 a.m. Sunday on charges of criminal sex act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment, a spokesman said.
I predict that if anything comes of this, we'll hear more reminders than usual from certain New York media that M. Strauss-Kahn is only a suspect, to be considered innocent until proven guilty. The arrest of an international agency bureaucrat, and a European socialist to boot, for something as tawdry as kinetic intergender dynamics doesn't fit the narrative.
