MANHATTAN — DNA from former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was found on the work clothes of a hotel maid he is accused of attacking, the Associated Press reported.
The DNA matches a sample taken from Strauss-Kahn after his arrest on attempted rape charges following the alleged attack in Manhattan's upscale Sofitel hotel.
The AP's two sources, who were not identified, also said they believe the politician's semen was found on carpet in the hotel room.
Strauss-Kahn's lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, declined to comment to the AP.
The one-time leading contender for the French presidency was released last week on $1 million bail and has been on house arrest in a downtown apartment since Friday. He is due to move to a new home Tuesday.
He was accused of attacking the 32-year-old maid on May 14.
He resigned from the IMF last Wednesday.
