Dominique Strauss-Kahn obviously has a long history with women other than his wife.
Those whom are known publicly are:
— An unnamed actress who said Strauss acted ‘like a horny monkey’ after inviting her back to a Paris flat.
— Tristane Banon, a French journalist, who Strauss allegedly tried to rape, or at least sexually assault.
— Piroska Nagy, a former IMF economist, with whom DSK admitted to having a short-lived affair.
Before Saturday however, no women had filed charges against him. Now, DSK will have official complaints from 2 women against him. The Sofitel Chambermaid, of course, and now Tristane Banon is also going to file a complaint.
According to the Guardian, Banon consulted a lawyer at the time of the alleged assault (which occurred when she was in her early 20s), but was persuaded not to take action by her mother, a friend of the Strauss-Kahn family. (Banon is goddaughter to Strauss-Kahn’s second wife, according to the Guardian).
Now, she’s 31.
Banon’s lawyer, David Koubbi, told the newspaper: “We are planning to make a complaint. I am working with her.”
If this is anything like the Tiger Woods scandal, we can expect more women will come forward.
