Geithner: Strauss-Kahn "Not in a Position" to Lead IMF

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said on Tuesday that embattled International Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn is "obviously not in a position to run" the international lending organization after he was arrested on charges of attempted rape.

The Associated Press reports that Geithner, speaking in New York City, said the IMF's executive board should pick an interim leader, while praising acting Managing Director John Lipsky. The remarks were Geithner's first on the matter.

 

Strauss-Kahn is accused of sexually assaulting a maid at the hotel where he was staying.
