More sex allegations against Strauss-Kahn

PARIS, Nov. 11 (UPI) -- Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn says he is the victim of a media lynching over allegations of orgies with prostitutes in Washington and other cities.

Lawyers for Strauss-Kahn have asked for him to be questioned by judges investigating an alleged prostitution ring after media reports linked him to the case, Radio France Internationale reported Friday.

The lawyers say Strauss-Kahn would like to be interviewed "as quickly as possible."

This week a French newspaper published text messages allegedly sent by Strauss-Kahn to businessman Fabrice Paszkowski, who has been arrested on charges of pimping and racketeering.

In one of the texts, which the paper said dated to 2009, Strauss-Kahn allegedly wrote: "I'm taking a girl to do the nightclubs in Vienna on Thursday May 14. Do you fancy bringing a little miss along?"

"Reserve the suite with the pool," another message allegedly said.

Strauss-Kahn's lawyers said the press reports and the text messages could only have come from the inquiry and demanded Strauss-Kahn be allowed to give judges his side of the story.
