I heard about the credibility questions that led to DSK’s release on bail. She lied on her application for asylum, cheated on her taxes, and misrepresented her income to keep her subsidized housing. I thought, “So? She still could have been raped.” A crack addicted hooker can be raped. No means no. It’s crap like this that keeps women from reporting rapes. Will they believe you?
Reading this article that had new information pissed me off. They have her on tape talking to her boyfriend who is in jail in AZ about how she can get money out of this. Was this whole thing a shake down?
If it turns out that this was a scheme, the woman not only falsely accused DSK. She slapped the faces of real rape victims. Those whose attackers are wealthy may think twice about reporting. Do you have to prove that you weren’t doing this to blackmail him? In addition to making people believe it happened at all?
Sexual assault is one the most under reported crimes. Women like DSK’s accuser don’t help.
