DSK may get out of jail tomorrow

(Correction: the story does not say there is a bail deal. It says there is a hearing tomorrow in which Strauss-Kahn will request bail. The reason I initially misread it was that Drudge linked the story with this misleading headline in huge letters: “FROG AND THE MAID: BAIL TO BE SET AT $1M.”)

In a story posted ten minutes ago, CBS News reports that Strauss-Kahn may be released from jail tomorrow on $1 million bail, but that he must stay in New York and wear an electronic device.

The story also says that according to the chambermaid’s attorney, she was subletting the HIV designated apartment where she was living and does not have HIV.

And then there is the carpet:

Two law enforcement officials told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity that investigators were using a piece of hotel room carpet to create a forensic trail in the case.

The officials say the carpet was cut from a place where the maid says she spit after being forced to have oral sex with Strauss-Kahn.

What do people think about the bail deal? Here are the first four comments following the CBS article:


He will bail on the bail and next year at this time, he will be president of France.

Preferential treatment once again if he gets bail. Flight risk … YES! Once he’s gone we will never see justice for this woman.
