Strauss-Kahn Case On Verge of Collapse with Doubts about Accuser

The Takeaway
In an exclusive story in The New York Times, investigators have serious doubts about the credibility of the housekeeper who accused the former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn,  of rape and sexual assault in a Manhattan hotel in May. Strauss-Kahn has stepped down from his position while the IMF investigates the charges, which he has consistently denied. According to law enforcement officials who spoke with Times, there are questions surrounding the asylum application of the housekeeper, as well possible links to criminal activities, including money laundering and drug dealing. It's likely that Strauss-Kahn's bail conditions will be eased and he could be released on his own recognizance as early as this morning. We talk with  Jim Dwyer, the  New York  Times reporter    who broke the story.
