The New York Times

Noah Rosenberg reports: “As the sexual assault case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn teetered on the brink of collapse, several supporters of his accuser gathered in Harlem on Sunday to urge the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., to pursue the case ‘vigorously.’ ‘Today is a very important day because it is a time for us to guarantee that justice is done,’ said State Senator Bill Perkins, a Democrat, who was joined at an afternoon news conference by other politicians and members of various advocacy organizations. Several speakers, including Assemblyman Eric A. Stevenson, a Bronx Democrat, joined Mr. Perkins in a passionate defense of the accuser, a housekeeper at the Sofitel New York who said she was attacked there by Mr. Strauss-Kahn.”
