Since the accuser is in protective custody and can’t be reached, Strauss-Kahn’s pals bid to pay off woman’s kin, in the best mobster-movie tradition
Friends of alleged hotel sex fiend Dominique Strauss-Kahn secretly contacted the accusing maid’s impoverished family, offering them money to make the case go away since they can’t reach her in protective custody, The Post has learned.
The woman, who says she was sexually assaulted by the disgraced former head of the International Monetary Fund, has an extended family in the former French colony of Guinea in West Africa, well out of reach of the Manhattan DA’s Office.
“They already talked with her family,” a French businesswoman with close ties to Strauss-Kahn and his family told The Post. “For sure, it’s going to end up on a quiet note.”
And that’s the guy the Socialists were going to run as presidential candidate.
Meanwhile, in another development yesterday, it emerged that Strauss-Kahn allegedly shouted, “Do you know who I am?” as he assaulted the victim, according to a new report.
Oh, we know all too well indeed.
