OK so just a quickie as I take in Today on R4…

I haven’t read the story on the NYT site yet but by the sound of it, the maid who accused DSK of rape collected a bunch of cash payments from some hoods doing time in a New York jail.

So I get it that a hotel maid on minimum wage benefits from some extra cash. But…

  • What benefit did the small-time crims get from the sting operation?
  • How did a bunch of dealers know to pick DSK or indeed what hotel he’d be staying at?
  • If the crims had no motive for the sting, who did?

If was Agatha Christie I’d have to say Christine Lagarde looked like a good candidate:-)

Talk about intrigue…
