Deserve each other

The latest NY Post revelation into why the DA lost confidence in DSK's accuser is that while the city had her stashed for free in a hotel in Brooklyn, "She was turning tricks on the taxpayers' dime!"

Meanwhile, the story is that she filed the false rape charge because DSK refused to pay her for her extra special service. Is he just cheap, or had he been under the assumption that the sight of his naked 62-year-old body had filled her with instant non-mercenary lust, and thus her asking for money afterwards wounded his amour-propre? DSK's worldview of female motivations sometimes seems learned from 1970s Penthouse letters to the editor, the ones that usually began: "I belong to a fraternity at a small Midwestern liberal arts college, and I'd never believed Penthouse's letters-to-the-editor until one night when I ordered a pizza delivered and ..." How much you want to bet that this real-life Pepe LePew has a prescription for testosterone supplements?

I suspect that by now the DA thinks he was raped.

Yes, but refusing to pay a hooker after she has blown you is not an assault. It's being an ass, but it isn't either a sexual assault or a rape. Even if he had *agreed* to pay her, and failed to afterwards, it *still* would be neither an assault nor a rape, because the act was consensual, and treating a john's failure to pay as an assault would be having the criminal law enforce an implied prostitution contract under penalty of being charged with an assault.

Like the Weiner, story, this one keeps on giving.

Toxoplasma, dude. Toxoplasma:

When we statistically corrected for age, men with latent toxoplasmosis were perceived as more dominant (p=0.009) and masculine (p=0.052). [source]

It is estimated that between 30% and 65% of all people worldwide are infected with toxoplasmosis.[48] However, there is large variation between countries: in France, for example, around 88% of the population are carriers, probably due to a high consumption of raw and lightly cooked meat. [source]

Well .... if she had sex with him in the expectation of money and then he welshed on the deal, I can't say he didn't deserve the rape accusation.

They both come across as pretty scummy people.

This is the funniest sex scandal since Naomi Wolf made a big fuss about how Harold Bloom placed his hand on her thigh instead of paying attention to her poetry. She said she went to the kitchen and puked.

Toxoplasmosis makes men less sexually desirable, Louis. Heavens, I hope you didn't intentionally infect yourself.

It is about time the press released both.

Hooking is illegal in New York. There is no enforceable contract, implied or otherwise. A prostitute who gets cheated should be taken straight to the police station to be charged, along with her john.

In a country full of shysters, though, we don't often see laws enforced to the letter, do we?

No appreciable loss to humanity would occur if the hooker, DSK, and all their lawyers were deported to Skull Island.

Here are leads which may possibly interest you. Lead # 1. Lead # 2.

Hilarious. Yes, Naomi... I remember reading the first chapters of The Beauty Myth and wondering if it was going to to be Sociology 201 schlock all the way through; with no irony, no depth, no nuance, no punch lines. Then I went to the kitchen and puked.

Perhaps he did not reneg on an agreement with her - he thought that the hotel covered her "Services" and she informed him that it did not, and he said "well, too bad then."

But not paying a prostitute is a rape. She consented to paid, not to unpaid sex.
Like what Julian Assange did. The women agreed to have a protected sex with him, but Assange took the rubber off. Now he is in jail facing trial.

"What is her name and where is her picture?"

Okay, back in May I got sent pictures of two different attractive African women with two different names. So, at least one (and perhaps both) of them is wrong. I don't want to misidentify somebody who didn't have anything to do with this, so I won't approve comments offering identifications without strong sources behind them.

If you had learned French at school you would know... The French press published both.

Chicago said...

So, much of this just boils down to DSK being a pathological cheapskate? With all that money he's not above stiffing someone for a small sum. What a creep he is on so many levels.

neil craig said...

But since the arrest it has come out that everybody in France (well evetybody who is anbody) has known for years that this guy just grabs any woman he is alone with. This may not be admissable in court but it is true.

Actually if his lawyer starts going into her history then, depending on what the NY law is, it may well become admissable. While there will continue to be judicious & I suspect untrue leaks about her to the media they will not, partly for this reason, be used in court.

She may be an illegal immigrant or even a part time whore (full time would pay much better than being a maid) but I find her much the more credible, as indeed did the horel and the police before the expensive lawyers started spinning.

"400 bad request said...

But not paying a prostitute is a rape."

No, it's theft of services. Incidentally, given that (as someone here pointed out) the hotel is on Times Square, and given that his "business trip" was scheduled to last from Friday evening until Saturday morning, it seems likely that DSK made the trip to New York expressly for the purpose of nookie. I guess as majority owners of the IMF, the american taxpayer picked up most of the tab for this junk-junket.

The young Monsieur Strauss-Kahn was a Revolutionary Communist in Paris 1968. He expects everything to be free, including women. Demand the impossible.

US needs swedish laws so that only the john can be arrested and we would not have all this fuss in the first place.
Poor women have to lie about rape in order to get their hard-earned money. This is very hurtful to the real rape victims. US needs to do more on women's rights.

I have a better idea. Why doesn't the US send these poor women to Sweden? Problem solved!

No thanks. Our police actually throws out a large proportion of illegally entering immigrants, with a swift legal procedure.

Media feels free to continue to drag DSK's name through the mud while admitting that the case will likely be dropped

Anonymous said...

Some valence ought to be permitted to enter into reasoned conjectures by considering the stark Qui Bono?
of the whole matter. America-friendly Sarkozy is now likely to win an election he might have lost to DSK. And the current head of the IMF is known in her own country as "The American". It is irrational in terms of present known facts to presume some sort of District of Corruption orchestration. It is shallow to disregard the possibility of such orchestration. That any foreign personage of prominence may be technetronically monitored during his/her visit to the U.S. is a not unlikely covert feature of our national security apparatus. That would open up a lot of potential for quick exploitation via the NYC police of any sudden human weaknesses. Hopefully, a fuller revelation of facts will give no further justification for regard to this possibility.

If only your cops extended that attitude to Somali "refugees"...

corvinus said...

I guess that's another reason that Africans have become popular cheap prostitutes in Europe and the Middle East.

Not only are they common, and their numbers growing rapidly (unlike Slavic women), but if they're busted, they can't make a coherent case.

Another pitfall of having an average IQ of 70.

It would seem that police investigations in NYC even in a matter involving a prominent international person (DSK) need
extend only to some checklist threshold of finding enough facts
to justify filing charges (??) The taxpayers, adequately informed, might wish the detectives to get all the facts they can and then..then..and only then, to get some sense of likelihood for a successful and justified prosecution. It seems perhaps another instance in America where people under age, say, 45 tend to have a very high incidence of aversion to hard, thorough, quality work??

Perhaps you know the joke which might now end:

As Mr. Dominique-Strauss got up to leave, the Guinean woman said,

"What about the money?"

Dominique-Strauss, insulted to the depth of his being, drew himself up to his full height and said,

"An officer of the IMF never takes money!"
