Coup de Theatre?

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the case against Strauss-Kahn may be crumbling. The Times reports that his 32-year-old accuser was said to have repeatedly lied and that prosecutors have now come to question her credibility. Strauss-Kahn's bail is expected to be reduced substantially because of the issue of the accuser's credibility. There is even talk of prosecutors dropping the charges. Whether the charges are dismissed or Strauss-Kahn has to face trial, the story today shows how harmful a rush to judgment can be. Strauss-Kahn was the president of the International Monetary Fund and a leading contender for French president. He resigned his IMF post after his arrest, presumably because of the all the pre-trial publicity. It appears that he'll never be elected for French president or any other significant office.
