DA's Letter Lists Accuser's Lies in Dominique Strauss-Kahn Case
As expected, Dominique Strauss-Kahn's bail was modified today to a personal recognizance bond as the DA's office told the Judge about the problems with the accuser's credibility. In a letter to Strauss-Kahn's lawyers, the DA's office didn't mince words. The accuser repeatedly lied to prosecutors and investigators -- about a prior gang rape that never happened, about details of the incident with DSK, and more -- lies she later acknowledged. [More...]
When she described the gang rape that never happened to prosecutors on two separate occasions, she did so in a "markedly distraught" manner, complete with tears. She has also admitted using a fraudulent visa to enter the U.S.
The accuser has even admitted lying to the grand jury about details of the hotel incident with Strauss-Kahn.
One law enforcement told the New York Post the accuser is a "con artist."
She’s a con artist," one law enforcement source said, adding that prosecutors have concluded "she cannot be put on the stand. She’d be a flawed witness." The alleged victim, a chambermaid at the Sofitel Hotel, "continuously lied to us," a law-enforcement source told The Post.
Is anyone asking if the accuser will be charged with perjury? Or lose her green card and be deported? The U.S. media is still not reporting her identity (It's available in virtually all foreign media reports.)
