Copé's chief of staff falls on his sword

Jérôme Lavrilleux, Copé's chief of staff at the UMP, has assumed responsibility for "missteps" in the handling of Sarkozy's campaign finances. Conveniently enough, his confession exonerates both Copé and Sarkozy. I find it difficult to believe that he is solely responsible, however.

I don't think anyone believed him, either. And his face was really of a man falling on his sword or, rather, sent to the guillotine by the culprit.
iTélé pointed out he made the announcement AFTER he was elected MEP so that he can't get sued, too.

Mr Lavrilleux and Mr Millot were two of the three in Mr Copé's core staff since years. It's more than difficult, indeed, to imagine they fooled Mr Copé.
