Nicolas Sarkozy has agriculture minister Bruno LeMaire working on his official campaign platform, but it never hurts to have other minions at your beck and call. So a group of septuagenerians has been enlisted, led by Vivendi president J.-R. Fourtou and including Figaro editor Mougeotte and former Grenoble mayor and convicted felon Alain Carignon.
Sheesh. In what other country can a presidential campaign be advised by the editor of one of the country's major newspapers? Conflict of interest? Ni vu ni connu.
