Former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn leaves a hearing at New York State Supreme Court on Friday after being released on his own recognizance. Many wonder whether Strauss-Kahn, once a strong contender to become France's next president, can make a political comeback.
France once again woke up to stunning news about Dominique Strauss-Kahn: Because of his accuser's lack of credibility in several areas, New York prosecutors no longer think they have a solid case against the French politician.
Strauss-Kahn, former head of the International Monetary Fund, had been under house arrest while fighting the charge that he sexually assaulted a hotel housekeeper in May. Friday, after prosecutors said they had found inconsistencies in his accuser's story, he was released on his own recognizance (though he must stay in the U.S.).
