Mon Dieu, Taxes Due on DSK's Dumbarton Street Home

Records show former IMF-chief, Dominique Strauss-Kahn (DSK) owes more than $16,000 in overdue property taxes on his Georgetown home, this according to The New York Post.

The 7,200 square-foot three-bedroom, 4 1/2 bath house, purchased by DSK's wife, Anne Sinclair, is currently on the market for $4.7 million, down from $5.2 million when it was listed in October, 2011. For a tour of the Dumbarton Street home, visit Business Insider.

The couple left Georgetown in September shortly after the Manhattan District Attorney dropped all charges stemming from allegations that DSK sexually assaulted a chambermaid at the Sofitel Hotel.

The New York Post also reports DSK was questioned in France last week for over 30 hours about "his participation in the vice ring, which was allegedly orchestrated at Paris’ luxury Carlton’s Hotel and the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., and financed by a construction firm hoping to gain influence over the ex-IMF chief."

“He could easily not have known, because as you can imagine, at these kinds of parties you’re not always dressed, and I challenge you to distinguish a naked prostitute from any other naked woman,” DSK lawyer, Henri Leclerc, told a French radio station, Europe 1, in December.
