us that both before and after his alleged sexual assault and forcible sodomy on an African immigrant maid in his New York hotel suite last Saturday, Dominique Strauss-Kahn was coming on inappropriately to every female employee he encountered, both at the Sofitel hotel and on the Air France plane just before police came aboard and put him under custody.
The story also has a remarkable revelation about what made possible the arrest of the frisky Frenchman (as the Post with its love of alliteration calls him) minutes before the take-off that would have put him forever beyond the reach of U.S. authorities.
Thus if DSK hadn’t called the hotel about his cell phone and told them where he was, he would have escaped. It didn’t occur to him that the maid had already reported him to the police.
But doesn’t such behavior on DSK’s part indicate absence of a guilty mind? Would a man who had so seriously assaulted a hotel maid voluntarily give his location to the hotel? This story remains a mystery.
Strauss-Kahn made advances on two hotel staffers, flight attendant

This frog was one horny toad.
Disgraced former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn attempted to lure two attractive hotel employees to his $3,000-a-night hotel suite—and later put the moves on an Air France flight attendant following his alleged sexual assault on a maid, The Post has learned.
“What a nice ass!” he barked to the attendant, using the lewd French expression “Quel beau cul!” as she prepared the business-class cabin for takeoff last Saturday.
His catcall came just moments before Port Authority detectives hauled him off the plane, the French magazine Le Point reported.
The final act of lust capped a whirlwind weekend of attempted womanizing for the former front-runner of the 2012 French presidential election.

Hungry for any piece of meat he could lay his hands on, the frisky Frenchman first tried his seduction skills on a VIP receptionist who escorted him to his suite at the Sofitel hotel in Midtown Friday evening, law-enforcement sources said.
When he got to his room, the 62-year-old asked the “attractive” worker to join him for a glass of champagne after her shift—an invite she described to authorities as “inappropriate,” and which she rejected on the spot, the sources said.
But the sex-crazed married father of four was determined to pop his cork.
Strauss-Kahn tried his game the following day on the desk receptionist who had first checked him in, described by a source as an “attractive woman who caught his eye.”
He asked her to join him in his suite, where he had a complimentary bottle of Dom Perignon champagne. The woman said that, at first, he was “borderline flirting” and she declined the sordid invite, according to the sources.
The revelations emerged after investigators interviewed every Sofitel employee and pored over more than 48 hours of video footage, including recordings of Strauss-Kahn bolting the hotel Saturday afternoon without checking out.
The silver-haired skirt-chaser did not explicitly ask either woman for sex, but both described his advances as blatantly “inappropriate,” the sources said.
The frustrated Lothario allegedly resorted to violence after striking out with the two hotel staffers. Prosecutors say that after emerging from the suite’s bathroom naked, he threw himself upon the unsuspecting 32-year-old maid, who had entered his room to clean.
Strauss-Kahn allegedly chased her down the hallway and into his bedroom, grabbed her breasts, attempted to pull down her pantyhose, and forced her to perform fellatio before she tore free from his grasp and ran to tell her colleagues, who called the cops.
The maid was so traumatized, she was sick to her stomach, and spit repeatedly on the floor and walls of the suite during four interviews by hotel security, the Daily Beast reported.
After leaving the hotel, the ex-banking big shot stopped for lunch with his daughter Camille, a Columbia University student, before grabbing a cab to JFK Airport.
The harried and horny political bigwig realized he had left one of his seven cellphones, and called the hotel.
Police investigating the alleged rape attempt had already told hotel employees to ask him where he was, and tell him they would deliver the cellphone.
He even had the gall to ask the pilot to delay the flight so the phone could be delivered, but was refused, according to Le Point.
Strauss-Kahn was indicted on seven counts, including attempted rape, criminal sexual assault and unlawful imprisonment. He’d face up to 25 years if convicted; he’s pleading not guilty.
