Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn (C) answers journalists' questions after voting for the second round of French Socialist party (PS) primary vote for France's 2012 presidential election on October 16, 2011

After beating two allegations of sexual assault, Dominique Strauss-Kahn now finds himself in a new sex scandal: a prostitute testifying at an inquiry in France has said that Jean-Christophe Lagarde, a chief with France’s national police, and Strauss-Kahn organized an orgy together at a Paris hotel room in the spring of 2010. Lagarde, who was once favored to run Strauss-Kahn’s protection unit if DSK became president of France, is also said to have accompanied prostitutes to New York City for Strauss-Kahn. The revelations came during an inquiry into an underage-prostitution ring. Strauss-Kahn has not been accused, however, of sleeping with underage girls.
