Dominique Strauss-Kahn Defends Himself in New Book

In a new book from Editions du Moment that was released yesterday in France, former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn told his side of the story about his hotel scandal.

In May, Kahn was accused of raping a maid at his hotel in New York, but the charges were dropped after investigators found the evidence inconclusive. In DSK Affairs: The Second Inquiry, Kahn alleges that Nafissatou Diallo seduced him. 

The Washington Post has more: “Lawyers for the maid, Nafissatou Diallo immediately dismissed the book — by Michel Taubmann — as ‘complete fantasy.’”

Paris Match published excerpts from the book, which was written by Kahn’s biographer, Michel Taubmann.

It read: “The flesh is weak. Dominique Strauss-Kahn saw a proposition. The situation amuses him. Rarely in his life has he refused a moment of pleasure. He does not resist the temptation to receive oral sex. The act is fast, very fast.”
