Dominique Strauss Kahn arrested- IMF names replacement?

Penny For Your Thoughts | May 15, 2011

That didn’t take long!
His allies are suggesting this is politically motivated….
A “conspiracy.” A word that has morphed into a buzz word used for derision & dismissal.
This arrest works out well for Sarkozy. Notice how quickly the IMF names a replacement?
Within hours.

I.M.F. Names Replacement as Chief Awaits Arraignment Strauss- Kahn, has not even been arraigned and he is out!
John Lipsky is in.

Mr. Lipsky, the I.M.F.’s first deputy managing director, is a former U.S. Treasury executive and onetime banker at JP Morgan. William Murray, an I.M.F. spokesman, said that Mr. Lipsky, who has been overseeing the logistics of the bailout of the Greek economy, would meet with members of the I.M.F. board in Washington later in the day, according to Reuters.

Wow! JP Morgan’s reach just got a whole lot longer. More on Mr Lipsky

Was this politically motivated?
Dominique Strauss-Kahn is victim of trap, minister suggests

A French government minister said Sunday he could not rule out that IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s arrest for alleged sexual assault was the result of a set-up with political motives. “We cannot rule out the thought of a trap,” Henri de Raincourt, minister for overseas co-operation in President Nicolas Sarkozy’s government, said in a broadcast interview.

Strauss-Kahn arrest removes Sarkozy’s toughest rival

Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s arrest on sexual assault charges removes the toughest rival to French President Nicolas Sarkozy for the 2012 presidential race, bumping up his chances of re-election to a second term.

Who benefits?

Had Kahn conducted himself in this fashion previously and got away with it?
Perhaps this time he miscalculated his political opponents?
