“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.”
About the same time as Banon’s allegations, French actress Daniéle Evenou said on another TV show, “Who hasn’t been cornered by Dominique Strauss-Kahn?” The Business Insider said.
