Strauss-Kahn, Schwarzenegger: Power and Sex

Hosted by  • 

A judge has ruled that the former head of the International Monetary Fund can be bailed under very restrictive conditions. Today, a New York judge established stringent conditions to make sure that Dominque Strauss-Kahn won't be a flight risk once he's released on bail. A long way from conviction -- he has hasn't even entered a plea -- he had to give up one of the world's most powerful jobs after a maid accused him of sexual assault. But DSK, as he's now known in the press, is hardly the only public male figure to recently be involved in cases involving alleged or proven abuse against women. What about all the publicity about other powerful men — former Senator Ensign, former New York Governor Spitzer – former California Governor Schwarzenegger?
