IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn accused of attempting to rape NY hotel maid

From MSNBC. He was only doing to the maid what the IMF does to entire nations.
The leader of the International Monetary Fund was pulled from an airplane and arrested Sunday in connection with the violent sexual assault of a hotel maid, New York police said.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn was taken off the Air France flight at John F. Kennedy International Airport by officers from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey about 10 minutes before it was to take off for Paris.

He was turned over to police for questioning Saturday afternoon, said Paul J. Browne, New York Police Department spokesman.

Strauss-Kahn, 62, was arrested at 2:15 a.m. ET Sunday on charges of a criminal sex act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment, and was awaiting arraignment, police said.

Strauss-Kahn’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, told The Associated Press that his client will plead not guilty at his expected Sunday afternoon arraignment.

“He denies all the charges against him,” Brafman said. “And that’s all I can really say right now.”

The news rocked France, where latest opinion polls ranked Socialist Strauss-Kahn as front-runner for the nation’s presidential election next April and May.

  1. Would you accept the auhoirtty of a voluntarily funded government whose sole purpose was to enforce the NAP? I suppose this is something I would get behind. I think it would be highly unlikely anyone would be willing to voluntarily pay taxes, but I could be wrong about that. I don’t think the government would be as efficient at administering justice as say a private court, and I also don’t believe that if you gave even the voluntary government the power to enforce the NAP that they wouldn’t expand on these powers as all governments do. This is the problem of political power: it mires your principles. Why do liberal politicians start wars? Why do conservative politicians raise taxes? These are the very things each side claims to hate, yet they do what they must to get re-elected.VN:F [1.9.7_1111]please wait…
