DSK Charged With ‘Aggravated Pimping’

In a huge blow, Dominique Straus-Kahn was charged with "aggravated pimping" in French courts Monday. The former managing director of the IMF was questioned earlier in the day by judges in conjunction with a prostitution ring before being charged; he's now free on bail. Although having sex with a prostitute isn’t illegal in France, Strauss-Kahn is thought to have used IMF funds to fund his trysts with women. Meanwhile, Strauss-Kahn's legal team is expected to be in court in the Bronx on Wednesday to fend off a lawsuit brought by Nafissatou Diallo, the hotel maid who said he sexually assaulted her last May in New York.
