No time to post, but dammit, I called it back in May, when I predicted that this Dominique Strauss-Kahn excresence would walk. Naturally, because I am the world’s leading authority on New York jurisprudence, that’s exactly what’s happened.
Why is he walking? Because the victim of his assault apparently lied on some old tax forms and employment applications. In the United States of America, it is settled fact that women who lie on old tax forms and employment applications cannot legally be raped as long as the rapist is rich and famous enough. Pronging such women in New York hotels, as well dislocating their shoulders and hitting them in the face, is an old white dude’s right. Luckily for American justice, a handy old dirtbag French politician happened to be on the spot when this particular woman needed her punitive yet “consensual” pronging, which was so “consensual” that the dirtbag felt compelled to try to flee the country immediately upon completion of his Great Seducering.
I am disgusted that the DA’s office is letting this slide, but, dammit, not surprised.
