(Newser) – Accused sex attacker Dominique Strauss-Kahn shrugged off rumors about his relationship with women in a recent interview—and predicted a rape accusation in his future. "Yes, I love women ... so what?" the IMF boss asked a reporter from the French newspaper Liberation just last month after the thrice-divorced dad was quizzed about the women in his life. "For years we talk about giant pictures of orgies," he said. "But I've never seen anything out" in the press. "Let's show them!" He also noted that he "could see himself becoming the victim of a honey trap" and speculated that it could involve a woman paid up to a million euros to "make up a story" that he had "raped her in a parking lot," reports Business Insider.

The erstwhile candidate for the French presidency has been accused by a Manhattan hotel maid of attempted rape; she says he tackled her when he emerged from his bathroom naked. A French journalist has now come forward to accuse him of a similar attack years ago. She says she kept her mouth shut then because her mom was politically ambitious and she didn't want to hurt her future.
