Strauss-Kahn apologizes to France: I made a 'moral error'

PARIS - Dominique Strauss-Kahn apologized to France on Sunday for a sexual encounter with a hotel maid he said was a "moral error" he would regret all his life, and vowed to stay out of the Socialist Party's 2012 election campaign.
In his first interview since a New York sex assault case ended his IMF career and wrecked his chances of running for president, Strauss-Kahn said he was angry with himself for what he called an ill-judged but consensual liaison that had let down his country and hurt his family."It was a moral error, and I am not proud of it," Strauss-Kahn said in an interview on TF1's prime-time Sunday evening TV news program, watched by millions. "I regret it, infinitely, and I don't think I am finished with regretting it."
