Despite charges against him being dropped, most people in France believe the political career of Dominique Strauss-Kahn has ended for good after he allegedly raped a hotel maid in New York.

Before the incident, many believed he would be the next president of France.

“This whole case has lifted the lid on DSK’s personality,” one young Frenchman said. “He’ll never be able to stage a political comeback.”

New York prosecutors announced Tuesday that while Strauss-Kahn did have sex with his hotel maid, they could not prove a sexual assault occurred.
