Editor’s Note: CNN's Nina dos Santos has obtained a copy of Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s farewell e-mail to the staff at the International Monetary Fund following his resignation last week.

Sent: Sunday, May 22, 2011 6:01 PM

Subject: Message from the Acting Managing Director, John Lipsky

Importance: High

As I mentioned in our recent Town Hall, the former Managing Director regrets that he is not going to be able to address us in person, but expressed his desire to send a message to Fund staff as soon as it was feasible.

I have just received the following letter from him, and I wanted to share it with you as quickly as possible.

John Lipsky

______________________

Dear Colleagues:

You have seen my letter of resignation as Managing Director of the Fund—one of the most difficult communications of my life. I wanted very much to be in touch with you, personally and directly, to express my profound sadness and frustration in having to leave under these circumstances. I am doing so because I believe it to be in the best interests of the institution that I care about so much, and of you, the staff, whom I deeply appreciate and admire.

The past days have been extremely painful for me and my family, as I know they have been for everyone at the Fund. I am very sorry that this has been the case. I deny in the strongest possible terms the allegations which I now face; I am confident that the truth will come out and I will be exonerated. In the meantime, I cannot accept that the Fund—and you dear colleagues—should in any way have to share my own personal nightmare. So, I had to go.

When I first met you, (I am picturing us in the atrium), I confess that all I really had was a sense of commitment to the Fund’s founding vision of global economic cooperation. This last phrase has always been more than just a slogan for me: I come from a place painfully aware of the slide from economic damage to political strife to war, destruction, and human misery. But I had only the vaguest ideas about how to go about the task. I thank you, all of you, for having sharpened that vision not just for me, but for the world, and for having given it content.

The Fund’s response to the crisis has been much praised. I don’t want to leave without remembering with you some key milestones. The early case for fiscal stimulus. The support, analytical and otherwise, for the crisis response by the G20 and the world. The introduction of sensible flexibility in lending tools (FCLs, etc). The large deployment of resources—both securing them, and using them, including in Western Europe for the first time in decades. New tools for identifying crisis risks, like the early warning exercise. Stronger engagement with the emerging market countries, especially in Asia, and with the low-income countries, especially in Africa, including with the new zero interest rate loans. The downsizing of the Fund—difficult as it was—and putting the Fund’s finances on a sound basis with the new income model. And the historic governance reforms, which have strengthened the sense of ownership across the entire global membership.

I also don’t want to leave without telling you—as perhaps I did not do sufficiently before—that I understand and deeply value all the other work that you did. Milestones are easy to remember and quote, but the daily work of the institution is much, much broader. And in your daily work, you invariably delivered: you provided invaluable expertise, be it in high-profile or low-key ways, in countless bilateral surveillance and technical assistance missions; you pushed past bureaucratic caution to confront the world’s policymakers with difficult facts; you quietly accomplished all the back office tasks without which nothing can be done; you embraced innovation in every area; and your dedication was without peer.

I do not doubt, not for one instant, that what the institution has achieved in the last three and a half years is the fruit of your thinking, your work, your conviction. You should be proud of what you have achieved. A tremendous amount of work remains to be done, at a very crucial time; you will deliver time after time, and I will cheer for you when you do so.

I feel privileged and humbled to have worked with such an extraordinary group of people. I will cherish our time together.

And so my dear colleagues, I say thank you, good luck for the future, and au revoir.

Dominique

    This is the guy who claims he loves his wife, while also claiming he had consensual sex with a hotel maid.

    Talk about true love, I wonder if he thought "what she won't know can't hurt her". Or maybe they have a modern "open relationship".

    If he can't control his temptation to have cheat on his wife, how are we to believe he can't control his temptation to lie and steal money?

    Very professional letter. May justice prevail – either way.

    Personally, I think he's been set up. The facts which have come to light thus far don't make the accuser look very credible. I am underwhelmed at the American system of "justice".

    Ahhh, the conspiracy theorists are out in full force. Why is so hard to just look at the facts and put political views aside? DSK has a long record of not exercising self-control when it comes to his zipper, but in France these transgressions have been hidden. An 'improper' relationship at the IMF and now a second alleged rape from a very believable source IN France. The stories abound about how he has treated women as sexual objects in the past (including trying to lure two other women working at the Sofitel to his room for 'champagne'). He's a lonely man with little conscience, a large ego and a sexual arousal problem. Logic and reason would lead one to believe he is guilty; only delusional thought, a Ouiji board or tarot cards, mixed with a healthy dislike of Sarkozy or the right could lead one to believe he is innocent.

    like billions of people, I am certain that he's been set-up, framed-up, too obvious... by whom and why? That is THE question! Take a look at this, guys, and try to answer those 11 "naive questions":

    Accordingly, to a naïve observer with limited capacity to understand luxury hotel suites, human anatomy, sex acts, criminal conduct, and the current relationships between President Sarkozy and the Obama Administration, these questions are likely to occur.

    What a bunch of hooey. Strauss-Kahn is guilty, and the prosecutors will prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

    Google for 'strauss-kahn new-details' for some more graphic evidence of how much he traumitized this poor woman from Guinee.

    Compared to her, even your average IMF Economist is a powerful person. So by circulating this email, John Lipsky is aiding and abetting Strauss-Kahn.

    Will Lipsky circulate to all IMF staff an email from the victim's attorney? Seems only fair.

    I am disgusted at the circling of wagons by rich, over-educated, privileged IMF employees. Face the facts: your former boss is a rapist.

    May 23, 2011 at 2:24 pm |
  24. Dominique (Yes !)

    Whatever the truth is, the American "justice" and "press" have killed a man, BEFORE having judged him.
    All of this to sell copies and ratings ...
    It stinks.
    As far as the man and what happened, let's wait ... Who are we to judge ? Especially not knowing !
    And if "the Americans" hate the French a little more, fine with me ! Who cares ?

    i pray that justice will be done and he is innocent,and plese politicians ont damage each others life just for the sake of power.you are not only hurting him,u r hurting his family n friends,there could have been a better way than this.

    Answer to MT comments: you should check a dictionary and figure out the difference of liking women (DSK confirmed attitude) and raping women (DSK yet-to-be-proven attitude). Perhaps you'll learn something today in doing just that

    johan, he never said it was consensual, he denies everything. The consensual story is an invention of the new-york post. Don't read the new-york post they create information when they don't have real.

    this is why many people think it is a setup http://www.thespec.com/news/world/article/533555–did-strauss-kahn-predict-his-own-downfall

    DSK is toasted. It is sad that people are very fast in trying to paint him as a victim when he is not. The poor lady's life is destroyed. No privacy nor dignity left and no one seems to care! He was a highly educated man with an extraordinary talent, but failed to understand that his zipper will destroy him one day and yes it did. Let us justice prevail before drawing a ultimate conclusion.

    It is really hard to set someone up in something like this without his cooperation, at least to some extent. They could put her in his path, but they can't make him sleep with her. It is possible to withstand temptation. Some folks don't even try.

  44. JHL

    Well crafted email, but it doesn't exonerate this alleged rapist. His prior bad acts should have put people on notice of what he was. If the European press, particularly the French, had chosen to expose him for the crude pig he apparently is, he may not have been in the US to catch a dose of the US judicial process.

    When it is found that there is no grand conspiracy and that DSK just is what he is, what then will DSK's enablers and apologists say? Perhaps they can save their kind words and fond remembrancesfor the sentencing hearing.

    By the way, if you don't like the perp walk, don't commit the crime in the US. It's so much more "civil" in Europe plus DSK's acts of this nature are passed off as the "Great Seducer" in action.

    The guilty ones, in a way, are those who were supposed to watch after him. The guy was under mortal threat (by himself !). So, Anne and the team of 4 French close advisors should have provided 24h surveillance (private security firm) when Dominique not in public (in addition to possible medical treatment for sex addiction : I am not sure such treatment exists or is efficient). The all thing would have never happened with a permanent body guard next to him. Too bad a judge had to come up with such a simple and obvious solution.

    its a set up. why? isnt it obvious. everybody isnt as stupid as u give us peons that actually work for a small slice of life. not everyone was born into money, and power. all you rich a-holes cover each others back. if it would of been some other rich a-hole it would if been covered up and the media wouldnt of covered it. the maid would of been payed off. strauss is just another victom of political assassination through scandal. us peons are just about sick and tired of failed promises and greed of the super rich. a million to them is nothing. to a peon it could b a life changing relief. so how about a million for ever man and woman peon in the u.s. thats chump change compared what has been spent in the last 10 years on war. and dont give me "oh its to assure my freedom" speech either. its all about fear propaganda. you all need to be fired.

    It is a sad day when a man in his position has to do such horrible, notorious act to another human beings; and it is totally inexcusable. Lock him up so he can repent.

  49. DSK-DOA

    Here is a more likely rendition of the story as it really happened; DSK traps female in his room. Yes, he is naked, No he is not going to rape her. However, DSK flips his wallet out, throws down a $500 bill, and offers it to the cleaner for a quick BJ before leaving to go home on his flight. After she agreed, performed and then spat it out on the carpet the deed is done and everybody goes thier separate ways until the female staffer tells another staffer what took place. After a few minutes of conversation and equipped with the new knowledge of the man's real wealth she decides to call her stupervisor and yell rape. Now it becomes a conspiracy and two or three of the female employees help spread some fictional accounts about him calling them for a drink or two so they can help bias the jurors. Now staffer #1 can sue him for $5,000,000.00 and DSK has to go to jail. HOW IS THAT FOR A STORY?

    this smells like a set-up. He's a horny frenchman in an ultra-conservative nation. It seems very possible that the woman was paid by his political adversaries. He is a wealthy man who can easily afford a hooker.

    Obviously, it does exist an evidence beam of his guilty. The french know he is a sexual addictive and he allready has sexually assaulted at least one young girl at work 7 years ago. Thus, the victim needs to be respected and he to be send in jail, whatever he would be able to pay to be freed and washed.

    Like Klaus Jurgens said, If DSK is found guilty the US justice system will come on top but if he is found innocent this will be a very embarrassing situation for the US and DSK political career might not be over in that case.

  55. Babouche70

    It is very much ignoring human nature not to understand that a man or a woman can be highly intelligent, caring in some areas of their lives but psychotic in others. We don't know what happened in that hotel room but the french (at least) know what happened to a female journalist victim of a sexual assault by the very man and this was confirmed by her mother, herself journalist and politician in the socialist party. He also used his position to pressure an economist into having sex with him in yet another occurence. This guy is not so much of a womaniser as we liked to believe, he may have been a brillant leader for the IMF, a brillant friend, a brillant husband but he is also a sex offender from past incidents, he needs to be dealt with in court like any other individual posing a risk to others and he needs to be treated, should he admit his addiction...

    such a sad page of history, with a man who (maybe) is innocent being smeared and exhibited like he was a massmurderer. With a person déclaring in the luxury building which refused to rent an (no actually 2) apartments to him, declaring that after having been in Rykers prison, there was no reason why he should be allowed to be pampered in such a well equipped building (swimming-pool and other facilities).> Who is this person : is she a prosecutor, is she allowed to judge before the courts did?

    The letter to his IMF colleagues is of an amazing quality – both professionnally and emotionally.

    I certainly do hope he will be proven not guilty (although I do, of course and needless to say, sympathize with the young woman in regard of what se suffered alread and of what awaits her, whatever the outcome).

    I also do hope that not many people will have to go through what this man and his family are being objected to

    Those of you proclaiming his innocence do know that his defence is based on a claim that the hotel maid had "consensual sex" with him – you do know he's saying that, right?

    So a young hotel maid was so overcome by the physical attractiveness of a fat 62 year old French bureaucrat that she couldn't resist ripping her panties off in his presence, but then changed her mind and reported it as a rape.

    Add this to his prior sexual assault allegation and general conduct with women, and the outcome is obvious, the man is a sexual predator.

    Boy, did he ever choose the wrong country to rape someone in, he will get 20 years for this.

    May 23, 2011 at 4:29 pm |
  64. Ian

    I am unclear on this idea that because he did a good job in his profession, that automatically means he is innocent. That is like saying "catholic priests could not have molested anyone, because they work for god". And so what if he hiked up his pants and walked through your countries dirty water. How does that reflect in any way on this situation. "this man donated money to an orphanage, so there is no conceivable way he could do anything bad ever." Blaming the accuser is a small indicator of many other bigger things going on in in the countries of some of the non US posters here, because in your countries, the idea that a lowly housekeeper should be given rights above this man is unfathomable. To some of you, it seems like she should "know her place". Don't forget. He has admitted at least that this did take place but that it was "consensual". So he was at least willing to cheat on his wife. And you are all cool with that.

    The term of justice in this case is a misuse of language! The accuser and the accused are not treated equally and it is shameful... His face is everywhere, his past is dissected – and we don't know anything about the accuser. How can you judge on such short info? For now on, we don't know if DSK is guilty. And the fact that he has been a "horny beast" in the past doesn't make him a rapist! Please, men... As for the previous cases, if he was guilty why these women didn't say anything? Don't blame our justice system, we are in France for Christ's sake! There is everything for a woman to be heard even if it is a political person we are talking about!
    And yes it is a shame what is happening to him for the French people. His political skills have no link with this story and people shouldn't mix up things like that. To be truly honest this message is written by a French woman with a "healthy dislike of Sarkozy or the right"'s last 4 years of running the country.
    nb: Popo, you are an imbecile – Reuse the New York Daily News' headline and by this way comparing DSK to Ben Laden, you are an undiscriminating person! (Even if it is actually better than you didn't think about the comparison.)

    Doubtful this was a setup, this guy seems to mistreats women and was caught, charged and let us see what a jury finds. The initial evidence must be compelling for the home detention, armed guards and police monitoring. If he is so innocent, he wouldn't require every ounce of strength to fight for his innocence. Granted, difficult time, but if you're head of the IMF, you can balance lawsuits and work. He will get a fair and speedy trial and we shall see.

    I agree that a court of law should decide whether he is innocent of guilty. That being said, I find this "memo to staff" very interesting. I work in public relations, and it is exactly the kind of memo (detailing accomplishments, asserting innocence, expressing positive human emotion, etc.) that I would let media "obtain" to publish my defense without appearing to be publishing my defense.

    This is ridiculous. All of you who assume that this is a huge conspiracy to prevent him from being the next French president fail to realize that that would include involving this woman, the NYPD and the nurses and doctors in the hospital who stated that the physical trauma was "consistent with the alleged claims". Typical French response. Instead of admitting that someone with a history of infidelity and sexual assault could be guilty of a crime, you cheese-eating surrender monkeys say that it is a set up. And bad mouth America all you want. We all know if it wasn't for America, France never would have been freed from the Nazis. During WWII, do you know why the French lined their streets with trees? So the Nazis could march in the shade. I'm not saying he is guilty or innocent, but the American justice system WILL find out the truth. And IF he is guilty, he should be punished to the fullest extent of the law for assaulting someone's sister, daughter, mother. If it you who were attacked like it has been reported, regardless of who it was, wouldn't you want justice to be served?

    There were so many reasons to shut him up, DSK has been set up and that's the truth that needs to come out. That'll change France's political scenary, the MFI's too, this guy's life and his family's too. His name has to be cleaned, the DSK painted by American media is nowhere near the real DSK. What's scary now is that France might have to do with either Sarkozy for an other 5 years, or that right wing national front candidate LePen. Don't sell the bear's fur/skin before you've killed it :)

    Strauss-Kahn is a disgusting abusive rich man who thinks he can do whatever he wants to the 'peasants' because he's so 'special.

    As for the idiots defending him, if he were innocent his lies would not have followed the pattern they did:

    First, he didnt do it because he wasn't even there. Then, oh yeah he just now remembered he was there, it had slipped his mind, but she 'wanted' it. Next he will be the victim because she stalked and attacked him. Finally it will be a plot by his enemies to discredit a completely innocent man, those photos were retouched and he was never even in America anyway. A classic case of reality-bending by a pathological liar.

    I say put me on the jury, I'm completely objective since I was never here and never wrote any post about him. And he wanted to be found guilty. Yeah, that's it, I just now remembered he came to my house a minute ago and forced me to write this, it's not my fault. See, it all makes perfect sense now.

His just happens to be women and sex. But here is how mature adults behave – they control their impulses, urges, desires and weaknesses and say..................No! I am not going to give in to that today. And then they get away from the source of temptation. He willingly walked into this type of situation more than once. This is not a set up – just another man thinking he was too powerful, sly, smart etc. to get caught. The joke's on you now sir!!! Busted.

    Any chance for a favorable outcome for Mr. Strauss-Kahn hinges heavily on two issues:
    Whether the judge allows evidence (i.e., testimony) from witnesses alleging similar behavior (sexual aggression, not affairs) in the past (i.e., from Tristane Banon); and what the forensic evidence shows. If his lawyer manages to have excluded from consideration any evidence of prior sexual aggression, AND forensic/DNA evidence is weak, he has a chance at an acceptable outcome or plea deal. Otherwise, I’m afraid DSK’s prospects are not encouraging.

    I find it appalling that we have tried and convicted this man before either a trial or conviction. It is "Let the punishment precede the crime," because he is innocent until proven guilty. An indictment is an accusation only. If the accusor has personal protection so should the accused. We have tied and shackled this man and paraded him out in public in his hour of shame – maybe we should have public floggings and dispense with any claim to justice.

  106. DSK Observer

    Again, DSK does not condemn the allegations as outright lies, but only DENIES them, as he did in his brief letter of resignation to the IMF last week.

    Quite revealing perhaps. His first - and second - opportunities to explicitly state the accusations are false, but he fails to do so. Why? Because he would then "perjure" himself if indeed (legally) he must be truthful?

    Add to that today's revelation: That DNA samples confirm sperm on the Sofitel maid's dress. Quel disastre pour DSK.

    Even if Strauss-Kahn he is innocent, I have little regard for anyone who charges $3,000 per night to the IMF. The International Monetary Fund is not for profit organization that is supposed to help POOR people, not fund an extravagant, and selfish lifestyle for its leaders. If he is guilty, and I think he is given his past actions, then he should be placed in the same cell with Ira Einhorn and they can trade tales of their romantic exploits.

  109. Sebastian Kent

    As an American, I too detest the wink-wink attitudes around "innocent until proven guilty" that pervade the justice system here. Police authorities are given too much discretion to inflame the court of public opinion and to often assasinate the character of suspects through rumor and conjecture in the press.

    I totally disagree with the "perp walk" mentality whereby police are allowed to parade someone out in handcuffs. I reject the need to even handcuff some suspects as are being taken to jail. Some of them pose no real threat to police officers armed with guns and tasers.

    I am ashamed of the "celebrity culture" here in America that creates the hunger to probe into the private lives of others and just once wish I could be on a jury to nullify the obvious abuses of the accused.

    Having said that, I whole heartedly support the fair and principled prosecution of those that commit crimes. I support swift and firm punishment. I would like to see less bravado and gamesmanship in criminal justice and more emphasis on a search for the truth and dignity to those who claim to be victims as well as those accused of being perpetrators.

    I hope all you conspiracy theorists are taking every thing into consideration. Remember DSK stayed at the hotel for only 24 hours. Ask yourselves: did his opponents know he was even staying in that hotel considering that this was a private stay? For an elaborate set-up of this nature, that is carried out trans-continental and involves a working-class immigrant maid, don't you think it would require more than just a 24-hour preparation?

    Monsieur Strauss-Kahn,
    Je ne sais si vos regrets sont sincères, mais une telle "histoire" éclabousse nécessairement l'institution dont vous assuriez la direction – le FMI – et, au-delà, votre pays, la France. La France qui est montrée du doigt (pour être juste il faudrait parler des medias français, qui ont été très "compréhensifs" vis-à-vis de vous et très ignorants voire même méprisants à l'égard de votre "partenaire", modeste femme de service du Sofitel de NYC)
    Des soutiens de personnalités ont choqué beaucoup de Français (Jack Lang, Jean-François Kahn, Bernard-Henri Levy, Robert Badinter...) et ce qui les choque encore plus c'est cette débauche d'argent pour votre défense, ce sont les paroles de votre avocat qui annonce (déjà !) un verdict d'acquittement !
    C'est honteux ! C'est très mal vu des Français qui, dans leur immense majorité, ne vous soutiennent pas ! Un jour, quand vous en aurez terminé avec la Justice américaine, il faudra rendre des comptes aux Français. Ils vous en demanderont.
    En attendant, bon courage !

    DSK is an example of what happens when a smart, but arrogant, person gets into a position of power and gets caught exercising sexually predatory practices. This is but the latest in a long string of sexually predatory incidents involving DSK. It's a shame because he actually is a highly intelligent economist with a broad range of skills and aptitudes. However, he is a sexual predator who has used, and gotten away with, his power to exploit women - until this latest incident at the Sofitel hotel in NYC. He had been a front-runner in the upcoming 2012 election campaign for the presidency of France, but his presidential ambitions are over, as are his career for seeking political office. He had to quit his IMF position in public disgrace. He now will face criminal charges that, if convicted for them, would keep him in prison for the remainder of his natural life. And, after the criminal trial is concluded, he likely will face years of litigation trying in vain to defend himself and his estate from numerous civil lawsuits in both the United States and France. He has publicly betrayed and humiliated his wife, embarrassed his family, and jeopardized not only his career and reputation, but his extensive portfolio of wealth. He may represent the greatest personal failure of any public figure in the past century.

    The dirty man is guilty all the way. As it was Kobe Bryant, Bill Clinton, and so many others. This man, feeling like the owner of the world, old man, tired of his old wife's ugly body, dreaming of having sex with any young woman who gets across, masturbating himself perhaps a couple of times a day (something natural when a man gets over 60), with the time of regretting things he never did (now that no rational woman would like to be with him in bed or behind the door) on his head everyday, just said that night in his room 'what a heck' and now is time to pay. You see, a semi dark room, champagne or gatorade, does not matter, then all of a sudden he is in front of a majestic ass and in front of huge breasts, which belong to a woman he imagines moving her pelvis like crazy under him, makes his 5" hard and firm and his senses lose control and his brain just orders him to go ahead, if not he is sentenced to empty himself using his hand (one more time). He forgets at that moment everything, including his millions, his job, his family, etc. He never thinks of a jail. The place where he belongs to. About the plot or set-up, Americans in general suffer of this complex during the entire life. Simply, because USA is a plot against the rest of the world, especially the poor people. So, it is not a surprise that they may think that this dirty old man was also set-up. I agree with POPO's comment (1:46PM).

    The French don't care if he cheated on his wife, that's normal there for politicians. Set up for what, he would have a better chance of winning if he's having affairs. He said so himself, he loves women. I think he lost his temper when he got rejected or she got mad when he wouldn't pay up or she's telling the truth. One of those 3 should fit.

    This man is a disgrace to anyone who supports him, including his family. The evidence is all there and yet we still have to cope with his feigned humility after such a barbaric act. What else is this lowlife capable of? Look at the lawyer-style bs wording: I deny in the strongest possible terms the allegations which I now face. There is a clear reason why this impostor does not say "I am innocent" and we all know what that is. If I lived in a country depending on IMF money I would now know exactly what the IMF asks in return for a loan... pretty much the same stuff their MD likes to demand from hotel staff, flight attendants, etc. DSK is a demented, sick individual.

    The damage has been done-whether proven innocent or guilty. This need be a learning point to all mortals. Illicit sex and sexual perversion of all kinds must not go unpunished. It does not make any difference whether the law of man or your conscience excuses you. God made provision for man to have sex but He also provided the guideline i.e between a man and his wife(woman)-(Genesis chapter 2 verse 24 and 25 ). Though you may escape the human court, but more to be feared is the court of heaven-(Revelation chapter 20 verse 11 and 12).There is only one advocate there-Jesus, and His fee is righteousness. The judge does not grant bail and there is no appeal, though repentance now will prevent disappointment. As for the case under discussion I advice the families affected to remain united with their loved ones in the trial moment and to look unto God for the best outcome for all parties.

Espero que la justicia lo ponga en su lugar, si existe justicia para los ricos y poderosos.

    if even Mr. Strauss- Kahn is found guilty to all the charges leveled against him, i still think he has been mishandled and disrespected so much; far more than he deserves. things have be taken to the extremes in his case and that's very unfair. too bad for him...

    It is simplistic and unfair to presume DSK violently assaulted a woman because in the past he had shown a propensity for affairs. Flirting with women is one thing, violently assaulting a woman is another, far removed, and to presume that a man is a rapist because he has a propensity to be a cheater shows bad faith.
