Strauss-Kahn’s accuser may have AIDS

Strauss-Kahn’s accuser may have AIDS
The IMF chief & touted French presidential candidate may have more than prison time to worry about. According to the New York Post his accuser may be HIV positive. The alleged victim lives in an apartment rented exclusively to those with HIV or AIDS.

Prior to living in her current apartment the maid from west-Africa lived in another apartment run by Harlem Community AIDS United which sets aside apartment homes strictly for adults with HIV or AIDS. Due to medical confidentiality laws it cannot be confirmed that the woman does indeed have AIDS, but based on her present and past residencies many have deduced that she does. The apartments are held exclusively for those who have AIDS or HIV. In order to rent the apartment at least one adult in the unit must be positive for one or the other. Strauss-Kahn’s accuser lives in the apartment with her 15-year-old daughter. She is the only adult. "The [current] apartment isn't rented under her name. Harlem [Community AIDS] United places their tenants in our building," explained Chaim Gross, an apartment management employee, to the New York Post.Strauss-Kahn is accused by the woman of forced sexual assault. She told police that he attempted to rape her while she cleaned his hotel room and forced her to engage in oral sex multiple times. "It is possible for either partner to become infected with HIV through performing or receiving oral sex," according to the Federal Center for Disease Control.Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers have refused to comment on the AIDS/HIV revelations.
