DSK victim may be HIV+

The hotel housekeeper whom IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn allegedly sodomized and attempted to rape may be HIV+ and/or have AIDS.
The IMF chief's alleged sex-assault victim lives in a Bronx apartment rented exclusively for adults with HIV or AIDS, The Post has learned.
The hotel maid, a West African immigrant, has occupied the fourth-floor High Bridge pad with her 15-year-old daughter since January -- and before that, lived in another Bronx apartment set aside by Harlem Community AIDS United strictly for adults with the virus and their families.
The Post has not been able to ascertain whether the maid, 32, has HIV/AIDS because of medical confidentiality laws.
But the agency rents apartments only for adults with the disease. A Harlem United worker said at least one adult in the household has to be HIV-positive or have AIDS to qualify for one of their units. A healthy adult with a child with HIV or AIDS is not eligible.

Yesterday, Zero Hedge broke the news that DSK was being housed in NYC DoC's West Facility for inmates "with contagious diseases." While that was embarassing news at the time, it doesn't compare to this morning's bombshell, which explains why DSK is on suicide watch.

Not sure which is worse, waking up next to a dead hooker, or finding out that the woman you forcibly sodomized is most likely HIV+.
This news doesn't necessarily rule out the possibility of a setup, but it certainly squashes any argument that DSK is any kind of innocent victim here. Whatever happened in that hotel suite was likely not consensual.
