Strauss-Kahn’s reputation as “The Great Seducer” is not helping him: A thief is always under suspicion

The arrest of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the powerful head of the IMF, for the attempted rape of a hotel housekeeper is troubling. If it is true, this incident confirms that there is a difference between common sense and intelligence. The man is bright and well respected for what he knows best: economics.

The American media can blow things out of proportion, so we must be careful before hanging him in public. Dominique Strauss-Kahn is still one of the most admired people in France. He has his weakness: women.

Mr. Strauss-Kahn, already seen as the next President of France, will certainly lose his job. For sure, the news of his arrest has been perceived in France as an earthquake, and some believe it is a conspiracy. Mr. Strauss-Kahn’s reputation as “The Great Seducer” certainly isn’t helping him. As the¬†Benadiri of Somalia say, “A thief is always under suspicion.”
