Turn of Phrase - Strauss-Kahn Is Big Pimpin'

Dominique Strauss-Kahn
"Having relations with an escort does not constitute a crime and is a matter of private behavior, perfectly legal among adults."

- An interesting "defense" from Richard Malka, attorney for legally embattled French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who is now being investigated for his alleged involvement in a French prostitution ring. Malka vehemently denied his client had any involvement in prostitution, and then added the statement above. 

You probably remember last year when charges were filed against the 62 year-old Strauss-Kahn, former head of the International Monetary Fund, for allegedly raping a New York City hotel maid. Those charges were eventually dropped, but then a separate sexual assault accusation was made against DSK by a French writer. The second set of charges also failed to result in a prosecution of the French politician. 

The current investigation into DSK's potential complicity in "aggravated and organized prostitution" is still underway, despite his denials of any involvement in such activities.

I'm not saying Dominique Strauss-Kahn is guilty of anything, but I'm pretty sure if he invites your sister, your mom, or your grandma out to dinner, she should definitely say she is busy washing her hair that night.
