Why Was IMF's Horny French Socialist Honcho in $3k Hotel Suite?

The Amorous IMF Boss, Strauss-Kahn

With all the uproar over French Socialist IMF boss, Dominique Strauss-Kahn chasing his chambermaid around in the buff, no one seems to have asked the question: What was this socialist champion of the poor doing in a $3,000 a night hotel room?

The amorous Monsieur Strauss-Kahn was, indeed, ostensibly a champion of the poor and down-trodden.

According to the International Business Times, the horny French Socialist party honcho's PhD dissertation "focused on how to stop the 'capitalist machine' from making people poor'".

In fact, when his Socialist party was last in power in France, it really went to bat for the poor and down trodden, increasing minimum salaries, reducing the work week to 35 hours and taxing the hell out of businesses to pay for it.

So you'd think that as an ardent advocate of the poor, Monsieur Strauss-Kahn would show a little solidarity with them by at least assuming more modest digs.

I'm not saying the IMF chieftain should repair to a squalid, rat-infested Harlem crackhouse. After all, he would need a place to kick back and relax after a hard day of conjuring up new ways to hand out American tax dollars to corrupt 3rd World social service bureaucrats.

He'd need a little place to work out those pent-up sexual frustrations after a hard day's work.

But did he really need the $3,000 penthouse suite at the Sofitel New York?

Even spendthrift, fellow socialist, Michelle Obama, managed to make do with a no more than a $700 a night room during her junket to Spain.

The US taxpayers shelled out $108 billion to fund the IMF last year.

Couldn't we at least insist that the IMF bureaucrats chase around the chambermaids at a Motel 6 in Hoboken?
