The public relations media tour by Dominique Strauss-Kahn's accuser is now in full swing: on the heels of her Newsweek her-side-of-the-story cover, ABC News has debuted an exclusive interview with Nafissatou Diallo, the hotel maid who has accused the former International Monetary Fund chief of sexual assault. The clip appears to echo some of the major points made in the Newsweek cover: she "re-enacted moments of the alleged assault, at one point kneeling on the floor to describe how she said Strauss-Kahn tried to force her to commit a sex act," ABC News wrote. She also pushes back against the New York Post's allegation that she was a prostitute: "I'm not," she said. The clip is the first video interview for Diallo, and it's being described as a risky move for the prosecution.
