NEW YORK—State Sen. Bill Perkins called on Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. to continue pursuing the sexual assault case against former head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Dominique Strauss-Kahn on behalf of a Sofitel hotel worker.
Perkins issued a letter to Vance prior to the press conference held on Sunday in the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building in Harlem.
“We believe that the district attorney has a responsibility to pursue this case, because apparently there is some evidence that merited him getting involved to begin with,” Perkins said.
