Dominique Strauss Kahn: Sure, I Participated In Group Orgies With Strangers, But Sacred Honor Compels Me To Declare I Never Suspected Some Of The Women Might Be Prostitutes

Scandals are just plain better in France. There, I said it.

Our scandals are pretty lame.

The French? C'est magnifique.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund and once likely French presidential favorite, arrived at a police station in Lille, France, today where he will be interrogated by police for up to 48 hours for allegedly "procuring" a handful of hookers for an orgy in the northern French town, an official close to the investigation told ABC News.

Strauss-Kahn has an airtight defense, though.

One of Strauss-Kahn's lawyers, Henri Lecleric, told reporters his client wanted to tell his side of the story. In December, Lecleric defended Strauss-Kahn, saying that though his client certainly participated in the orgies, he was "blissfully unaware" anyone involved could be a prostitute.

"He could easily not have known, because as you can imagine, at these kinds of parties you're not always dressed, and I challenge you to distinguish a naked prostitute from any other naked woman," Leclerc reportedly told French radio Europe 1 then.

Off the top of my head? Here would be my thinking: The 19-year-old Eastern European beauties lining up to have sex with fat 70 year old French socialists just might have been compensated for their participation.

But that's me. I'm a naturally cynical person.

By the way, that "I had no idea they were prostitutes" defense doesn't even make sense: Apparently he's being questioned about "procuring" the prostitutes-- negotiating with them, hiring them.

If that's true, then he's saying.... what? "I had no idea the strange street-hookers I was paying for sex were actually prostitutes"?


Hey, at least I didn't rape them.
