Dominique Strauss-Kahn's Alleged Victim Resides In HIV/AIDS Housing
OMG! The alleged sexual-assault victim in the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case lives in a Bronx apartment rented exclusively to adults with HIV or AIDS. The hotel maid has been residing there with her daughter since January, and before that, occupied another apartment set aside for infected adults and their families.
Because of confidentiality laws, no one knows for sure if the maid has HIV/AIDS. But according to Harlem Community AIDS United, at least one adult in the household has to have the disease in order to rent one of their units. A healthy adult with an infected child does not qualify—and according to public records and neighbors, the maid is listed as the only adult resident.
The victim, whose name is being withheld, has accused Strauss-Kahn of forcing her to have oral sex with him and then trying to rape her when she came to clean his Sofitel hotel room in Times Square on Saturday. Strauss-Kahn, 62, is being held without bail at Rikers Island and is under suicide watch.
If the victim is indeed infecting with HIV/AIDS (which is what all signs are pointing to), what does this mean for the accused IMF chief? That he now has a lot more to worry about than a few years in jail.
