A rival lawmaker also alleged, without offering evidence, that Dominique Strauss-Kahn had victimized several maids during past stays at the luxury Sofitel hotel near Times Square.  McConnell, the prosecutor, said in court Monday that New York authorities are investigating at least one other case of "conduct similar to the conduct alleged" at the Sofitel.

Also this afternoon from the NY Post, new details emerge.

IMF head in snit over lack of VIP treatment

Earlier in the day, Strauss-Kahn was outraged that he wasn’t getting the VIP treatment he’s accustomed to as the jet-setting head of the International Monetary Fund and darling of the French left, a police source told The Post.

Cops "are not thrilled by the French idiot, or his attorney, Brafman" the source said.

Strauss-Kahn, one of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful moneymen, had been forced to cool his heels in the lockup of the NYPD’s Special Victims Unit in East Harlem as Brafman and celebrity bondsman Ira Judelson faced off with the Manhattan DA’s Office over a bail package, sources said.

The dingy digs, where prisoners are allotted $1.80 per meal, were a far cry from the $3,000-a-night luxury suite that Strauss-Kahn had been enjoying at the Sofitel New York only a day earlier.

The whiny fat cat had to tough it out after an assistant district attorney backtracked after initially offering the suspected sex fiend $250,000 bail — on the direct order of the prosecutor’s boss, Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr., sources said.

As of last night, Vance was seeking bail of up to $2 million, plus the stipulation that Strauss-Kahn wear an ankle bracelet. His passport has already been confiscated.

"The concern of the DA’s office is there is no extradition treaty with France, and this guy could pull a Polanski," the source said, referring to director Roman Polanski, who faced a child-sex rap in California in 1977 and remained on the lam in France for more than 30 years.
