Disgraced former IMF chief and ‘sex addict’ Dominique Strauss-Kahn emerges as favourite to become the next French PRESIDENT

Disgraced former IMF chief and self-confessed ‘sex addict’ Dominique Strauss-Kahn has emerged as a favorite among voters to become the next president of France.

The shamed economist has admitted to taking part in sordid global group sex sessions, and paid four million pounds to a New York hotel maid who accused him of rape.

But a new survey has revealed he is still the second most popular left-wing potential president for the 2017 election – far ahead of current leader Francois Hollande.

Pollsters Viavoice said 37 percent of those questioned thought Strauss-Kahn would be a good choice for the presidency, beaten only by the current prime minister Manuel Valls on 47 percent.
