Rape: one of the few crimes in which the victim is so often guilty herself until proven innocent.

Earlier this week, Nafissatou Diallo sat down with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts to give her account of what happened to her that fateful morning at the Sofitel with accused rapist Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Accused of being a prostitute, a plant by DSK’s political rivals and/or a greedy woman who is trying to set up an innocent man for a big payout, the 32-year-old describes how afraid and “sad” she was after the assault:

Yesterday, Diallo made her first public appearance at a Brooklyn church, where she thanked her supporters for continuing to stand behind her despite the fact that the District Attorney’s offices has practically destroyed its own case by releasing contradictory information about a conversation in which she was alleged to have suggested to an incarcerated friend that she would be able to get a lot of money from Strauss-Kahn; these comments were later revealed to have been misinterpreted.

  • She’s such a brave woman.She didn’t have to address the public,but she did anyways.
    Lord knows I would not have had the strength to do the same.
    I hope he burns in hell.

    That’s a shame what that District Attorney’s office did to her. They should have kept their mouths shut. They were probably paid off to make this case go away.

      The DA’s office has the ethical responsibility to share all discovery–unsavory or not. It’s a required part of all pre-trial proceedings.

  • She is very strong. DSK will pay.

    I hope she gets justice.

    I hope she gets justice soon but the legal team that is advising isn’t doing a good time. Strauss has access to shrewd lawyers who are likely to use her appearance in the media to their advantage (u know argue shes using this as a cashcow). Sometimes its better to say nothing than to come out all guns blazing.
