Strauss Kahn Home
September 5, 2011 by staff
With charges of attempted rape against him dropped, but having had to quit her job as managing director of IMF, Strauss-Kahn was free to return home to a nation still shocked and puzzled about how a potential president on the edge of a carefully planned political campaign could have been so imprudent as to have had a sexual encounter, consensual or otherwise, with a hotel maid.
With her deep into the Socialist Party presidential primary campaign and most of his closest allies have joined with other politicians, home of Strauss-Kahn left the party uncomfortable. Even the party secretary, Martine Aubry, a candidate who would not have arisen if Strauss-Kahn had distanced himself from him first, telling French television last week: “I think that just as many females as Strauss-Kahn’s attitude to women. ”
But from the moment that Strauss-Kahn and his wife, Anne Sinclair, got out of Air France Flight 007 here, was the smile, the silent eyes of a tornado, the media, reflected in coverage without stop, live TV channels on French cable news.
At the airport, surrounded by police who tried to keep photographers and reporters at bay and serenaded by a man trying to sing Verdi, who smiled, waved and greeted some supporters, but said nothing.
Nor do they speak when they reached the door of his apartment building in the elegant Place des Vosges, although they were crushed as Strauss-Kahn tried to push the code to open the door.
While a spokesman said Strauss-Kahn, 62, would not speak to reporters Sunday the media, almost all other politicians in France, found the time to do so.
Pupponi Francois, an ally and mayor of the Paris suburb of Sarcelles where Strauss-Kahn had been mayor, said Strauss-Kahn, known here as DSK, had no intention of joining the October primary for the race in May 2012 president, but the time to consider the future and relax.
“The important thing is that he’s back in France,” said Pupponi. “He’ll be able to think ahead more clearly.” He has much to offer to France, Europe and the world in the future, Pupponi added.
Pierre Moscovici, a close ally who decided after the arrest to become a campaign coordinator for the favorite Socialist, Francois Hollande, said he had called to welcome the couple’s home after an ordeal that was “as he himself said, a test, a nightmare. ” In the future, said Strauss-Kahn “will be useful to his country, useful to the left, and his recognized expertise is a new use.”
Legal problems of Strauss-Kahn have not been completed. He faces a civil lawsuit in the United States by the hotel maid, and here are the prosecutors to investigate a complaint of attempted rape against him in July for a novelist of a meeting that took place in 2003. Strauss-Kahn denies it.
