Democracy Now: DSK Accuser Speaks Out, Vows Perseverance

The New York City hotel maid who has accused former International Monetary Fund chief, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, of attempting to rape her continues to speak out about her case. Addressing a news conference on Thursday, Nafissatou Diallo, an immigrant from the African nation of Guinea, said the case has taken a huge personal toll, but she is determined to bring it to light.
Nafissatou Diallo: “Today I promise I’m going to be strong for you and for every other woman in the world. What happened to me, I don’t want that to happen to any other woman, because this is just too much for me. It’s too much for me and my daughter. And I’m here to thank everybody … people support me. I want to thank everybody. I thank everybody. I’ve been crying, asking God, ‘Why me? Why me?’ I just want to thank everybody.”
