Dominique Strauss-Kahn's accuser wasn't just a girl working at a hotel -- she was a working girl.
The Sofitel housekeeper who claims the former IMF boss sexually assaulted her in his room was doing double duty as a prostitute, collecting cash on the side from male guests, The Post has learned.
"There is information . . . of her getting extraordinary tips, if you know what I mean. And it's not for bringing extra f--king towels," a source close to the defense investigation said yesterday.
The woman was allegedly purposely assigned to the Midtown hotel by her union because it knew she would bring in big bucks.
"When you're a chambermaid at Local 6, when you first get to the US, you start at the motels at JFK [Airport]. You don't start at the Sofitel," the source said. "There's a whole squad of people who saw her as an earner."
The woman also had "a lot of her expenses -- hair braiding, salon expenses -- paid for by men not related to her," the source said. ...
Sources also told The Post Strauss-Kahn's probers uncovered evidence that she was part of a pyramid scheme that targeted immigrants from her native Guinea.
"We have people who have been victimized, who have claimed she ripped them off. Nice working people from her neighborhood," a source said. ...
A spokesman for the hotel union denied it placed the victim at the Sofitel.
"These allegations are absurd," spokesman Josh Gold said. "She never registered at our hiring hall. We never sent her for a single interview. We absolutely did not place her at the hotel and we do not track tips."
Also, how is all this going to get spun to make it obey the Prime Directive that Diversity Is Good? "If only we had Open Borders, then everybody could be a legal immigrant. See, it's all the fault of racist nativists that immigrants get sucked into a life of fraud. If only those straight white male bigots in Arizona didn't make this crude, insensitive distinction between legal and illegal, then everybody in the world could be a legal immigrant in America, so there wouldn't be any fraud at all. Really, when you stop to think about it, the blame rests squarely on the shoulders of those who label some human beings -- but not other human beings -- as illegal. That's discrimination! And we all know that discrimination, noticing differences, is the worst thing in the world. End of discussion."
So, how much of an outcry will this story inspire in the MSM about the evident need to make the asylum process less vulnerable to abuse by foreign conpersons?
