DSK First TV Interview in France

DSK Admits Hotel Incident Was a Mistake, Calls Maid a Liar

In Dominique Strauss-Kahn's first interview on French TV since escaping sexual assault charges in New York City, the French politician accused hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo of lying repeatedly. As the news report above explains, DSK conceded that his behavior was inappropriate, but he then attacked the maid's credibility, maintaining that he did not use force. The former IMF chief went on TV to make amends with the French public, hoping to revive his political career. While he ruled out a presidential run, it's clear DSK wants to return to public life.

Women protested outside of the TV station, outraged that DSK is being welcomed back by the establishment while he is still being sued in the US and France. French journalist Tristane Banon, a friend of DSK's daughter, has accused him of trying to rape her when she showed up to interview him and said she had to kick him off of her. In the interview, DSK addressed those accusations, calling them "imaginary and defamatory" and said he simply tried to kiss her. According to him, everything is just one big misunderstanding, whether he's trying to "seduce" an impoverished hotel worker in Manhattan or a professional journalist in France.
