Aug. 27 - Former IMF chief, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, returns home to Washington days after sexual assault charges against him were dropped.Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
Dominique Strauss-Khan returned to his Washington, DC home on Friday night (August 26), with plans to visit the International Monetary Fund he once headed next week. Strauss-Kahn led the IMF as managing director for four years and resigned on May 18, four days after his shock arrest in New York for criminal sexual assault and attempted rape involving a hotel maid. In a dramatic development this week, prosecutors asked the charges against him be dismissed after they lost faith in the credibility of his accuser. Strauss-Kahn had been expected to be voted France's next president in the 2012 election.
