Already found guilty of making a racist remark in the incident involving the "Auvergnat" and of violating the presumption of innocence in the case of David Sénat, the minister of the interior, Brice Hortefeux, is now charged (by a deputy of Europe Écologie) with "hindering the exercise of justice" for his criticism of the guilty verdict against a group of policemen in Bobigny. That's quite a few "missteps" for one minister.

BTW, the young Auvergnat has quit UMP. He said that he was so pressured by the national leadership that he felt forced to lie as to the circumstances of Hortefeux's line and he couldn't look at himself in a mirror anymore.

I don't understand how a person can be condemned by a court of justice AND remain a minister. Worse even, that this man could be found guilty of racism and remain in government.
