Being well-known as the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Presidential candidate of the Socialist Party next year, but Dominique Strauss-Kahn's reputation with women gave him the nickname “"the great seducer”. Mr. Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who has been seen as a contender in France's 2012 presidential election, had made ashamed scandal of attempting to rape a chambermaid at Sofitel hotel in Manhattan, New York. The IMF head was arrested on May 11 and is being detained at New York's notorious Rikers Island prison. Polices believe that if the charges are not quickly dropped, they could destroy Strauss-Kahn’s chances in a presidential race which is starting to heat up.
