WSJ: Not much sympathy for the view that DSK was victimized

Camille Strauss-Kahn/Tristane Banon


The French writer and journalist who claims Dominique Strauss-Kahn attempted to rape her eight years ago is more determined than ever to bring him to justice, Tristane Banon’s allegations are the subject of a preliminary inquiry that Koubbi said had “not yet been completed”. Strauss-Kahn’s Paris lawyers have dismissed her accusations as “fantasy”.
We don’t have much sympathy for the view that DSK has somehow been victimized by the process. His antics would never have survived a day in a modern boardroom—HP’s Mark Hurd and Boeing’s Harry Stonecipher lost their jobs over far less—and should never have been tolerated at the IMF, where he bullied a staff economist into an affair.
