(Newser) – The maid accusing Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault has had her credibility take a drubbing lately, and the New York Post has the latest, and potentially most damning: She worked as a prostitute at the Sofitel Hotel, the paper claims in an exclusive that cites an anonymous defense source. "There is information . . . of her getting extraordinary tips, if you know what I mean. And it's not for bringing extra ... towels," says the source.

The source claims that her union placed her at the Sofitel: "There's a whole squad of people who saw her as an earner," adding that she had many personal expenses paid for by men unrelated to her. The union denies the claims, with a rep calling the allegations "absurd. We absolutely did not place her at the hotel and we do not track tips." The Post speculates that DA Cyrus Vance will be forced to drop charges, and the maid's lawyer blasted him as "too afraid to try this case" in the wake of a few recent high-profile losses.

You, brilliant and flawless Americans!!! In that country your forefathers took from their real natives (Amerindians), you’re at the 13th ranking of the people who kill the most (During year 2000, 16204 homicides were committed in the USA). And in France? 430. Don’t you feel ashamed of living in a country that spends more money in War (US$685.1 billion in 2010) than in Education (US$71 billion in 2011)? In France: Military and National Defense 2011 Provisional Budget: €31,2 billion National Education 2011 Provisional Budget : €60,5 billion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_budget_of_the_United_States http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Department_of_Education http://www.defense.gouv.fr/actualites/articles2/le-budget-2011-de-la-defense-un-effort-equilibre http://www.education.gouv.fr/cid53362/projet-de-loi-de-finances-2011-60-5-milliards-d-euros-pour-l-education-nationale.html Some of you pretend to be Christians in your government but they like provoking wars on false and inappropriate reasons. Thousands of innocent people died. In fact, they’re never been your real enemies. But now, it’s very difficult for them to consider some of you nice human beings. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_military_casualties_of_war In 2006, in porn industry on physical markets and on the Internet, America made more than 10% of products and movies sold all over the world. We, the French, don’t need lessons on morality from you. http://www.safefamilies.org/sfStats.php Recognize this: your system of justice is based on inequality. For instance, if you were a poor black man, you would have more probabilities of going to jail than a rich white man who could pay for his lawyer. Don’t even try to object to this reality. You just have to refer to your national Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS). http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/content/pub/pdf/pim07.pdf And don’t pretend Afro-Americans people are more violent than Caucasian people for their DNA or by their culture. Be serious fellows! If you did your homework, you would recognize that the white (Caucasian) people have killed, raped and enslaved more humans than other races in the entire History of Mankind. Nevertheless, most the French are capable to distinguish the American people from their rulers. But, most of you are incapable of understanding DSK doesn’t represent all the French. He just represents himself and some of French political or financial leaders. Not each French man or woman is a pervert or unfaithful. Do I think every American man or woman is an uneducated person? Do I think every American man or woman is a hypocrite human being? So, you must look at yourselves in the mirror before blaming the others. Q.E.D

This is high powered political character assination. France wants him to run for president. It looks like they got to the district attorney's office. They knew from day one she was maiking money on the side, she's stil a rape victim!
