A French prosecutor has announced a probe into accusations that Dominique Strauss-Kahn raped a woman at a Washington, D.C. hotel. As reported earlier this month, a Belgian prostitute told police that Strauss-Kahn forced her to perform certain sex acts without her consent in December of 2010, not long before his alleged rape in New York City. "I didn't scream but I said clearly and loudly that I didn't want to," the woman said, although another prostitute has questioned her story in the French press. Strauss-Kahn has already been charged with aggravated pimping for his connection to high-powered hotel sex parties, along with businessmen Fabrice Paszkowski, David Roquet, and police officer Jean-Christophe Lagarde, who are also involved in the Washington investigation, the BBC reports. According to the prosecutor, the inquiry will focus on an event "that could be described as gang rape." Here we go again!
