Accusations that DSK accuser Nafissatou Diallo is a prostitute have been flying (so far without proof) for weeks now, so it's no surprise that Strauss-Kahn's legal team is embarking on a new strategy: painting Diallo as an "earner" who tried to pad her salary with various gifts from men. According to Newsweek, Strauss-Kahn's lawyers will claim that Diallo returned to his hotel room after the alleged attack to see if he'd left any money for her.

She's a prostitute who was asking for it. And even if she isn't a prostitute who was asking for it, she's taken gifts from consensual male partners before, so that proves that DSK raping her doesn't actually count. I do so love our legal system.
