Report: DA to Drop Strauss-Kahn Case

A “top investigator in the case” tells the New York Post that Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. will drop charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, possibly at his next court appearance in two weeks. "Her credibility is so bad now, we know we cannot sustain a case with her," the source says of Strauss-Kahn’s accuser. According to the Post, multiple investigators for both the defense and the prosecution say they believe the woman was turning tricks at the hotel where the alleged attack took place—and sources for Strauss-Kahn’s defense now tell the Post he paid her for sex and then she became angry when he stiffed her. Still, Strauss-Kahn is not exactly in the clear, as a second woman in France has filed a complaint of attempted rape against him; Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers responded by suing the woman, Tristane Banon, for slander.
