He's un animal.Following his arraignment this morning, there's concern if he makes bail he'll be off to France, never to return.
IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn acted like a "chimpanzee in heat" during a creepy previous grab-and-grope with a French journalist -- an incident with eerie similarities to his alleged attack on a Manhattan hotel maid Saturday, according to an explosive interview.
In a 2007 tell-all interview with French TV, journalist Tristane Banon accused Strauss-Kahn of making the sickening overtures in 2002.
"He wanted me to hold his hand while he answered [my questions]," she recounted. "He said, 'I can't do it if you don't hold my hand.' After the hand, it was the arm, and after the arm it was a bit further, so I stopped him.
"We ended up fighting . . . It was more than a couple of slaps, I kicked him, he opened my bra, tried to open my jeans . . . It finished very badly."
Banon's alleged attacker's name was censored from the piece, but she later told the French media outlet Agora Vox that the man was Strauss-Kahn, who already had been dubbed the "Great Seducer" in the press.
She described Strauss-Kahn as "a chimpanzee in heat" and added that a lawyer she contacted told her he had a huge file of women with similar tales of the perv politician.
Strauss-Kahn is so well known in his country that he is referred to simply as DSK. And his sexcapades are so infamous that he also is known by the suggestive nickname chaud lapin, or "hot rabbit."
The whiny fat cat had to tough it out after an assistant district attorney backtracked after initially offering the suspected sex fiend $250,000 bail -- on the direct order of the prosecutor's boss, Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr., sources said.More on the attack on Banon here.
As of last night, Vance was seeking bail of up to $2 million, plus the stipulation that Strauss-Kahn wear an ankle bracelet. His passport has already been confiscated.
"The concern of the DA's office is there is no extradition treaty with France, and this guy could pull a Polanski," the source said, referring to director Roman Polanski, who faced a child-sex rap in California in 1977 and remained on the lam in France for more than 30 years.
Update: This socialist sleazebag has been denied bail.
