DSK Accuser Sues NY Post for Libel

The AP reports:

NEW YORK – The New York City hotel maid at the center of the Dominique Strauss-Kahn sex assault case has filed a libel lawsuit against the New York Post after it called her a prostitute.

The woman’s lawyer, Kenneth Thompson, filed the claim Tuesday in Bronx state Supreme Court. A series of Post articles over the weekend said the 32-year-old was a “prostitute,” and “hooker” and that she “traded sex for money.”

The lawsuit says that the statements are false.

A spokeswoman for the Post said the newspaper stands by its reporting.

Nat Brown is a former deputy web editor of Foreign Affairs and a former deputy managing editor of National Review Online.
