They are going to release La Grenouille DSK on bail ~ electronically tethered supposedly ~ with megabucks for bond.

We’ll see how long they can keep him in the country.

    He’ll be joining Roman Polanski soon enough

    I wouldn’t bet against you on THAT one, girlfriend. He’s gonna look like The Flash getting out of here.

  3. Gunslinger says:

    He’ll get out of the country even if he has to mail himself to Paris via UPS. The dumb bastard that released him should be tarred and feathered.

  4. Ave says:

    In addition to the 1myn bond DSK must provide 5 myn in flight risk insurance (I wonder which insurance company will sell it to him and for how much?) and he had to sign away his French non-extradition rights. Now he’s either got to prove that the sex was consensual or introduce enough reasonable doubt that the jury fails to convict him on most if not all six counts. That means the junkyard dogs will be out in full force for the Guinean hotel maid. Her life will just get worse and worse – until she agrees to settle.

  5. NJSue says:

    The maid’s allegations seem credible but I can’t understand why such a prominent and thus vulnerable man would have taken such a risk. Maybe he has some kind of dementia that interferes with impulse control (scary thought, considering his job). Or maybe he did order an escort to come up to his room and he mistook the maid for the “service provider,” only realizing his mistake when it was too late. Either way it doesn’t look too good for him.

    NJ Sue the list of “prominent” men who have done this sort of risky thing although maybe not rape, is long, endless in fact. I don’t agree that he realized his mistake when it was too late, was it because she was distraught, wouldn’t take any money? No, if her story is true this guy just flat out raped her because he could. I’ll bet dollars to doughnuts that he gets on a G-5 sooner than later and holes up in Frogland, they won’t extradite him no matter what.

  7. Gary from Jersey says:

    NY Pot headline: “Frog Legs It.” The French are apoplectic. DSK’s ruined. Gonna be a good day.

  8. tree hugging sister says:

    WHEN (and notice I said “when”, not “if”) he makes it back to the auld sod of his native land, any and all bargains (signing away his French non-extradition rights) struck with les sauvages Am√©ricains will be declared null and void. After all, a few days in Rikers with the great unwashed in such close proximity, eating grilled frommage of indeterminate origin (made by filthy common fingers on white bread) is tantamount to water boarding, c’est non?

    He signed under duress.

  9. Yojimbo says:

    Yes, he may have signed over his rights but la belle bleeping France hasn’t. Some judge, magistrate,whatever will still have to formally agree to remand him to United States custody. The French would undoubtedly let him fight the order at that time. After all, it was only a cleaning lady and the UN has de facto sanctioned rape squads on that continent already, so what’s all the fuss about anyway…..

    md, those donuts are just too tempting so I’ll take that bet. No question that DSK has ruined himself, but OJ got off so maybe he thinks he can too. And the Frogs really really want Christine Lagarde to get his old job. Donuts! Donuts!
