Dominique Strauss-Kahn's innocence was obvious to me from the beginning because the rape liar's story made no sense at all.
It was obvious to several others as well, but far too few. Another reason thing are so bad? Because most people believe even obvious rape liars like Nafissatou Diallo.
Also see the Dominique Strauss-Kahn Round-Up at FRS, including a link to an article at the Wall Street Journal victim-blaming DSK. Here's a quote from the WSJ article:
People like Dominique Strauss-Kahn or Anthony Weiner, who want to skate along the edge of responsibility to the public they serve and the excitements of private temptation, should probably retire to private life where they can take their chances with nothing more than private reputation.
