PARIS (AFP) - Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn admitted in a new book Thursday to having an uninhibited sex life, as its author said the one-time contender for the French presidency was the victim of a plot. The book, by French journalist Michel Taubmann, sees Strauss-Kahn open up about the sex scandals that have dogged him since he was accused last May of having sexually assaulted a New York hotel maid. It accuses the maid, Nafissatou Diallo, of being part of a conspiracy to smear the French politician and insinuates that she may have stolen an IMF-issued Blackberry mobile phone.
