The leader of the International Monetary Fund now embroiled in a criminal assault case in New York City was cleared in 2008 of harassment charges after an affair with an IMF economist.
But it’s that kind of behavior that should make the world wonder about trusting the IMF, Rep. Ron Paul said Sunday.
The 2008 Republican presidential candidate told “Fox News SundayĚ that Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who was pulled off an Air France flight moments before take-off from New York Saturday and arrested on charges of a criminal sex act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment, said the whole course of events “is a bit ironic.Ě
“These are the kind of people that are running the IMF and we want to turn the world finances and the control of the money supply to them,Ě Paul said. “That should awaken everybody to the fact that they ought to look into the IMF and find out why we shouldn’t be sacrificing more sovereignty to an organization like that and an individual like he was.Ě
