Strauss-Khan questioned for possible prostitution ring ties: Former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Khan, who was forced out of his position amid rape allegations, was taken into custody Tuesday in the French city of Lille. Strauss-Khan was wanted for questioning for “complicity in a prostitution network” and “aiding and abetting in the misappropriation of company assets.” This doesn’t necessarily mean he did anything — police may let him go after 48 hours, or they may renew his custody. The French politician turned himself in Tuesday morning, in efforts to end a “press lynching.” Eight people have already been charged in the wide-ranging prostitution ring. (AP photo)

The Dominique Strauss-Kahn case appears to be on the way to falling apart. Not that the accuser didn’t try to fight this, with a last-ditch effort to remove the prosecutors which appears to have fallen flat.
