The sexual assault case against former head of the International Monetary Fund Dominique Strauss-Kahn is still slowly shuffling forward.
Here's Kristin Davis, the "Manhattan Madam" and former candidate for governor of New York, dishing on her dealings with DSK:
He was brusque, businesslike and grunted more then he spoke. He wanted "fresh faced younger American girls" for his two sessions. He paid a rate of $1,400 an hour for his time with these women. [The call girl who had introduced me to him] had warned me prior to referring him that he was a bit aggressive and to send him girls who could handle this behavior – and I let both girls know this prior to booking him.
In his first session, the woman stated that he was semi rough but it was not a problem, she could handle it. The second woman complained after their appointment about DSK's abusive and brutish behavior and excess roughness. She said he "tore at her flesh" and left a few bruises the size of thumbprints on her arms. She said it started out as role play but DSK took it to another level. I knew then he had the proclivities of a sexual deviant and would never be allowed an appointment with the girls that worked for me again….
DSK's defense attorneys have already admitted that a consensual sexual encounter occurred. Why aren't the papers asking for more details? Where are the "sources" DSK may have spoken too? Lets hear exactly what happened from DSK's perspective. If the maid is subject to scrutiny based on her accounting of the facts then we should hear DSK's version of the story….
The defense has already admitted to a sexual encounter- why is it difficult to believe that it was one that was forced?
On a side note, Reason.tv viewers will recall that Davis' platform for governor contained basically four planks: Legalizing gay marriage, legalizing casino gambling, legalizing marijuana, and legalzing prostitution. Who would have thought that half her platform would practically be realized by now in the Empire State? Gay marriage passed legislative muster and Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) is taking a long look at non-Indian casino gambling.
Reason.tv interviewed her in June 2010 about her political goals, her background in finance, her dealings with former Gov. Eliiot Spitzer, and the power differential between men and women in legal proceedings. Check it out:
