    Could Dominique Strauss-Kahn be off the hook? Investigators for the prosecution looking into the housekeeper who accused him of attempted rape say that the victim's story has some major holes-and the case against the former IMF chief could soon collapse. DNA evidence reportedly confirms a sexual encounter between the two, but prosecutors say the woman has since lied repeatedly. She was also recorded discussing the benefits of pressing charges against Strauss-Kahn with a man currently in prison for drug smuggling who had made deposits totaling $100,000 in the woman's bank account. Prosecutors met with Strauss-Kahn's team on Thursday to discuss dropping felony charges. The defendant could be released from house arrest as early as Friday morning.
