An heiress, a judge and a job: France's Sarkozy goes on trial for corruption


Recommended Posts

Beware the pen. It is so much mightier than the sword. Write an article, pepper it with lies and at best half truths and 40-60% of the people will believe it. Personally, IMO, that is exactly what this article is. Written by none other than a Reuters rumor writer.

That behavior is probably pretty endemic throughout elite power politics.  I just wonder who in the billionaire class he angered seeing that he's getting tossed under the bus.
Need to throw a power elite against the wall occasionally in order to make the rest of the swamp creatures look clean and pristine by comparison.

 

Indeed.

 

Madame Lagarde was found guilty of corruption. But the judge let her off with no punishment as apparently is permissible under French law. Her reward - she got to be head of EU Central Bank!

 

So yeah, he must've seriously peed someone off, or made a vengeful enemy.

She was not found guilty of corruption but negligence. Not the same thing. In corruption you benefit from the deal in negligence you just did not do your job good.
