Interesting revelation at Huffington Post today about International Monetary Fund managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn facing charges stemming from an alleged sexual assault involving a hotel maid.
"Strauss-Kahn has blogged for HuffPost," the story reads, nine paragraphs deep. Well, that certainly catches a reader's attention.
Turns out the prominent French socialist has blogged at HuffPo at least a dozen times over the last eighteen months, including four posts this year. Most recently, on March 31, Strauss-Kahn wrote about China's economy and the international monetary system. All of his posts, linked here, have been on economics.
Another HuffPo story on Strauss-Kahn described him as a married father of four "whose reputation with women earned him the nickname 'the great seducer.' " The story also revealed that a woman in France who alleges she was sexually assaulted by Strauss-Kahn nine years ago "now wants to file a legal complaint against the IMF head."
Liberal economist Bob Kuttner quickly assured HuffPo readers that "even before this latest scandal broke, Strauss-Kahn didn't seem like much of a socialist."
