Things in broke Europe are becoming stranger by the minute. Stepping away from the Bank of England telling private institutions what to do, and overriding fiduciary responsibility, we now shift to France, but not in the context of the Second Great Socialist Revolution and its Fairness Doctrine annex, but to the home and office of ex-president Nicholas Sarkozy whose home and office where just raided according to Politique in connection with long-running allegations that his presidential campaign had been illegally funded by France’s richest woman Lilliane Bettencourt. Do you see what happens Larry when there are no PACs and it is illegal for rich people to outright bribe politicians?
Officers from the financial police and the justice of Bordeaux Jean-Michel Gentil raided, Tuesday, July 3 in the morning, the home of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Villa Montmorency in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, the law firm Arnaud, Claude and associates, in which Nicolas Sarkozy holds units, located 53, boulevard Malesherbes (17th) and its new premises at its disposal as a former head of state, located 27 rue de Miromesnil.
Judge Gentile, condemned for abuse of weakness and illegal campaign financing, investigate possible remittances by Liliane Bettencourt the former head of state, including during his 2007 presidential campaign.
Nicolas Sarkozy, whose presidential immunity ended June 16, is implicated in two ways: by Claire Thibout, the former accountant of Bettencourt, a sum of 150,000 euros would have been delivered in early 2007 to Eric Woerth, treasurer at the time of the presidential campaign of Mr. Sarkozy. In addition, several testimonies collected by justice make state visits during the 2007 campaign, Mr. Sarkozy made ??by the homes of Bettencourt, whose purpose would be discounts for cash.
