I agree with Shane on this. There's nothing like using an alleged sex crime, 
especially with the victim as a black immigrant and the perpetrator as a 
powerful head of a world financial institution, to get some on the left to 
automatically take at face value what may be a major conspiracy. If much of 
the information coming out is true (and yes, that is a big 'if'), it should 
be clear that there are much bigger forces at work than just this maid and 
perhaps her boyfriend. Who's responsible for paying not insignificant sums 
of money into her bank account over a period of two years, for example? 
Those who stood to benefit from his stepping down include not only Sarkozy, 
but also those wanting even more stringent conditions applied to Greece than 
he might have implemented.

The response to this resembles the hysteria which accompanied the 
propagandistic misinformation surrounding the alleged rape camps in Bosnia, 
in order to generate left/liberal support for military action.
