Top of the Hour: Strauss-Kahn Case is Shaky, Morning Headlines

The Takeaway
The sexual assault case against former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn is reportedly on the verge of collapse, after investigators found holes in the credibility of the maid who says Strauss-Kahn attacked her in a Manhattan hotel room. Investigators say Strauss-Kahn's accuser has possibly been involved with drug dealing and money laundering.  The case is so shaky that Strauss-Kahn could be released on his own recognizance at a bail hearing today, and freed from house arrest.
