EX-PRESIDENTIAL FRONTRUNNER INDICTED FOR "PIMPING"
Remember Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund who was accused of raping a maid at the New York Sofitel in May 2011? The one-time French presidential frontrunner got off the hook that time after the New York D.A. dropped charges due to unreliable testimony by the alleged victim. ("DSK" later settled a civil lawsuit brought against him by the maid for a reported $6 million.) Apparently unable to learn his lesson, Strauss-Kahn was indicted this Friday for "soliciting prostitutes" for sex-parties that he admittedly took part in at the Carlton Hotel in Lille. His attorneys predict victory and vindication in a trial that could last as long as one year. The former political superstar better hope they're right: he risks ten years in prison and a € 1.5 million fine if convicted.
