Strauss-Kahn's wife to edit French Huffington Post
Anne Sinclair, the wife of the former head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Dominique Strauss-Kahn, has been named as the editor of the new French edition of The Huffington Post website.
Ms Sinclair's status as a journalist was eclipsed by her husband last year, when he was forced to resign from the IMF amid accusations of sexually assaulting a chambermaid in a New York hotel. Although the charges were dropped, they scuppered any ambitions Mr Strauss-Kahn might have had of challenging Nicolas Sarkozy for the presidency.
Ms Sinclair, whose appointment came to light in an invitation to a news conference to announce the launch of the website, was a well-known television chat show host during the 1980s and 90s.
However, one editor at Le Monde, Huffington's partner in the venture, questioned her credentials, saying the defence she provided for her husband showed she had "lost her objectivity," according to L'Express magazine.
