Dominique Strauss-Kahn Rape Charge May Be Dropped (VIDEO)

Sexual assault charges against former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn could be dropped in the next few weeks, according to sources close to the case who question the accusers credibility.

Prosecutors say that the Sofitel hotel maid accusing him of rape lied repeatedly, including about being gang raped on her asylum application. Further inconsistencies were pointed out in her story, including that in her grand jury testimony she claimed she waited in the hallway after her attack, but she has since told investigators she cleaned a nearby room after the attack.

Strauss-Kahn was released from house arrest last week and can now move freely. However, a newly filed lawsuit in France accuses Strauss-Kahn of attempted rape several years ago.
