Here’s a new theory about Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the ex-IMF chief and former frontrunner for the socialist presidential nomination in France.
The reason Strauss-Kahn becomes embroiled in sex scandals is that he’s “mentally ill” says one of France’s former prime ministers [via The Telegraph].
“This man quite obviously has a mental illness that makes it difficult for him to control his urges,” Michel Rocard said in an interview with Canal+ television’s Grand Journal news.
Rocard, 81, a member of France’s Socialist party who served as prime minister from 1988 to 1991, said Strauss-Kahn is “very talented” but he no longer has faith in his abilities.
Strauss-Kahn was recently acquitted of charges of attempting to rape Nafissatou Diallo, a New York City hotel maid. Diallo has filed a separate civil lawsuit.
