NYPD Releases DSK Mugshot

There have been quite a few spoof and comedic versions floating around, but here, courtesy of the NYPD, is the official version.]

From the Daily Mail:

In grainy black and white, this is the mugshot of one of the world's most powerful men, released by the NYPD today.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn's mouth is set in the image, his gaze averted. He appears to be wearing a jacket and a light-coloured shirt.

The booking photo was found in a prisoner movement slip released by the NYPD today.

And the full slip:

As was reported earlier tomorrow there will be a bail hearing for the IMF chief tomorrow. And more details from the Mail:

Meanwhile NYPD investigators are DNA-testing samples of fluid they found in the $3,000-a-night suite that Strauss-Khan had been staying in.

The maid showed them where she had spat after the Frenchman allegedly forced her to perform oral sex, according to CBS News.

Police also say they have checked information from the suite door's electronic card reader which indicates the woman came into the room but didn't shut the door, as is hotel policy.

This proves the maid was in the room to work, not have consensual sex, investigators told the news station.

Described as a 'good Muslim' by a close friend the maid was an asylum seeker from Guinea - one of the poorest countries in Africa.

Lastly, the UK magazine has compiled a list of all the women that DSK has been romantically linked with. By the time this is all over, we are confident the list will be far longer.

Tristane Banon, 31, journalist
Allegation: Attempted rape and sexual assault.
Strauss-Kahn allegedly summoned her to a Paris apartment for an interview in 2002 and asked to hold her hand before pouncing on her. He undid her bra and jeans before she shouted ‘rape’ and kicked him off, she has said.

Piroska Nagy, 50, IMF official
Allegation: Coerced into a liaison.
The Hungarian-born blonde met Strauss-Kahn in Washington in 2007. She says his seniority made her feel pressured into a consensual fling. An investigation cleared him of abusing his authority but he admitted an ‘error of judgement’.

Aurélie Filippetti, 37, Socialist politician
Allegation: Harassment.
The leading politician and novelist described a ‘very heavy, very insistent’ attempt by Strauss-Kahn to chat her up in 2008. She has since denied that he groped her, but said she would ‘forever make sure’ she was never ‘alone in a room with him again’.

Yasmina Reza, 51, playwright
Allegation: Affair.
France’s most celebrated dramatist has been romantically linked to Strauss-Kahn as well as his rival Nicolas Sarkozy, after she wrote an intimate account of the president’s 2007 campaign. The book was dedicated to ‘G’, a socialist who is expected to become head of the IMF. Strauss-Kahn’s middle name is Gaston.

Carmen Llera, 58, writer
Allegation: At least one dalliance.
The Spanish author was a member of Strauss-Kahn’s academic inner circle. In two of her books, she hints at possible affairs with him.

Young actress, age unknown
Allegation: Gorilla-like behaviour.
The unnamed actress was invited to a Paris apartment with Strauss-Kahn, where he allegedly acted like a gorilla or ‘randy monkey’. His alleged assault on Tristane Banon also saw him labelled a ‘rutting chimpanzee’.

European journalist, age unknown
Allegation: Harassment.
The ‘tall and willowy’ reporter, using the name Martina, said he called her repeatedly and insisted ‘almost directly that I had to sleep with him for an interview’. She did not succumb, but two years later he continued his efforts, when she was pregnant.

Mexican chambermaid, age unknown
Allegation: Fling
According to a book published by a member of Strauss-Kahn’s inner circle, he had a fling with a maid in Mexico. If true, the episode echoes the charges he now faces in New York.
