    "Mensonges et la Calomnie" sez Sarkozy.

    This should keep him side-lined while Hollande cements his own position.

    It's all getting a bit serious for Sarkozy:
    CNN) -- An investigative judge has charged former French President Nicolas Sarkozy with breach of trust, accusing him of taking advantage of elderly L'Oreal cosmetic heiress Liliane Bettencourt to help fund his 2007 campaign, Sarkozy's attorney said, according to CNN affiliate BFM-TV.
    The former president was summoned to appear at Judge Jean-Michel Gentil's office in Bordeaux on Thursday in a case in which he is suspected of accepting illegal contributions from Bettencourt and her staff, BFM-TV said.
    His lawyer, Thierry Herzog, said that he intends to appeal the ruling, according to BFM-TV.
    The Bettencourt scandal has fascinated France since questions about the finances of France's richest woman emerged in 2011 amid a family feud.
    The charges against Sarkozy, 58, are considered preliminary, and they could lead to trial or be dismissed

    I don't want to be ghoulish but I cannot help myself.

    Cavity search the b'stard and afterwards make sure he hasn't stolen watches and rings. 'Cause he's worth it!'

    just heard this piece on the radio and couldnt care less about Sarko, but am I the only one having trouble believing that a man in his position would take 'envelopes full of cash'?

    honestly.. is this 1950? who the hell walks around with pockets(?) bags(?) full of cash?

    Sarko's been taken into custody over allegations of taking cash from Gaddafi.
