Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn faced preliminary charges of "aggravated pimping" and procurement of prostitutes in France.
A lawyer for DSK acknowledged that his client had participated in sex parties, but claimed that DSK could not have known the women were prostitutes!
As if the mental image of DSK in sex parties is not disturbing enough, DSK's lawyer gave us this priceless quotation:
"He firmly declares that he is not guilty of these acts and of never having the least inkling that the women he met could have been prostitutes ... I defy you to tell the difference between a nude prostitute and a nude classy woman ... Because as you can imagine, at these kinds of parties you're not always dressed."
