Precipitous Drop in UMP Membership

Médiapart reports that the UMP's members has dropped from 370,000 in Dec. 2007 to 171,000 in June 2011. A remarkable decline. But even more interesting is the reason given as paramount: Sarkozy's attempt to make his son the head of the development agency EPAD:
Aujourd'hui, Dominique Paillé confirme que «l'affaire de l'EPAD» a été «désastreuse», «une vraie rupture»: «Ce sont des adhésions que nous n'avons pas réussi à reprendre».
