What happened with a maid in a luxury New York hotel suite in May was a “moral weakness,” Dominique Strauss-Kahn said Sunday in a French television interview.

Strauss-Kahn denied any violence or aggression, saying the incident was “an error, a mistake — a mistake concerning my wife, my children, my friends” as well as the French people “who placed their hope for change in me.”

In May, Strauss-Kahn was pulled off a Paris-bound plane in New York over accusations he sexually assaulted a Guinean maid. Days later, he resigned from the International Monetary Fund, spent a few days in jail, and was put under house arrest. Last month, a judge dismissed sexual assault charges against Strauss-Kahn.
