Policeman Was Allegedly DSK’s Pimp, Now Facing Underage Prostitution Investigation

If there’s one good thing we can say about Dominique Strauss-Kahn, it’s that he does manage to keep us endlessly entertained. Today: police pimps and prostitution rings.
The New York Post reports that Strauss-Kahn was allegedly part of a prostitution ring, organized by a policeman who, get this — was poised to become Strauss-Kahn’s personal bodyguard had he won the French election. Prostitution is legal in France as long as both parties are not minors, but police were investigating because they believed some of the prostitutes were under 18.
The former IMF head is of course denying he engaged in sexual acts with minors, but he could still be questioned, and his night time trysts brought to light. There’s also the alleged pimp-cop friend, Jean-Christophe Lagarde, who could be in real trouble if underage prostitutes are discovered. Let’s just say, none of this looks good.
Throughout the past few weeks, it’s felt like Strauss-Kahn has been able to unbelievably escape drama after drama. Just last week, he admitted to sexually assaulting a woman in 2003, but he wasn’t convicted because the statute of limitations had run out. From the looks of it, he won’t face charges for the prostitution ring either — but his friends could. And his reputation is pretty much done for.
In other news, he appears to be sporting a scruffy, unshaven look these days.
