Strauss-Kahn Apologizes For 'A Mistake'

In a speech before the IMF yesterday, Dominique Strauss-Kahn "said clearly, two or three times, that he wanted to 'apologize' for what he said was 'a mistake on my part.'" His team has always maintained that his encounter with Nafissatou Diallo was consensual, so it's not entirely clear what he's apologizing for — perhaps just for the impropriety of getting a blowjob in a hotel room from a woman not his wife? In any case, it's striking to hear DSK apologize at all.
