The shocking news that IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been arrested on allegations of forced oral sex comes at a precarious time for Europe.Various basket case nations — most notably Greece — are in dire need of new bailout/restructuring plans that would likely involve the IMF.
Strauss-Kahn himself was due to meet with Euro leaders in the coming week to discuss precisely this matter.
On Sunday he was scheduled to meet with Germany’s Angela Merkel for a chance to update her on Greece, Ireland, and other hot spots.
Presumably all meeting will now have to go on without him.
