Mom of DSK Accuser: He Slept With Me

The mother of Tristane Banon, the French woman who has accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn of attempted rape, says she had sex with the former IMF chief a few years earlier. Anne Mansouret, 65, told Paris detectvies that Strauss-Kahn “took me with the vulgarity of a soldier'” at a work event in 2000. The sex was consensual, but also “brutal,” Mansouret says. Previously, DSK is reported to have said, “I slept with the mother,” and then was “overwhelmed” by the daughter. Banon has accused him of acting like a “rutting chimpanzee” as he tried to rip off her clothes. Police say her mother’s affair with DSK is part of the reason she waited eight years to report the alleged attack.
