DSK pleads not guilty

While the world is distracted by the stupidity of the Twitter twit Anthony Weiner, this is the more serious sex scandal playing out in New York:

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former managing director of the International Monetary Fund, pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges that he sexually assaulted a hotel housekeeper.

In doing so, Mr. Strauss-Kahn uttered his first public words since the episode in the Sofitel New York, saying “not guilty” in a heavy French accent — setting the stage for a criminal trial in which Mr. Strauss-Kahn is expected to face his accuser.

Indeed, a lawyer for the housekeeper said on Monday that the woman intends to testify against Mr. Strauss-Kahn.

The lawyer specifically said:

“The victim wants you to know that all of Strauss-Kahn’s power, money and influence throughout the world will not keep the truth of what he did to her in that hotel room from coming out….

“And that despite the smear campaign that is being committed against her, she is standing up for her dignity as a woman. She’s standing up for her self-respect as a woman. And she is standing up for all of the women and children around the world who have been sexually assaulted or sexually abused and are too afraid to say something.”
