Hell hath no fury ... which is a bad thing when your phone has been tapped

Gilbert Azibert, pauvre con ... He thought he could wangle a nice post in Monaco for his retirement by lending a helping hand to a former president of the Republic in trouble with the law. His wife warned him not "to get mixed up in any shady dealings with that Sarko fellow." But did he listen? No! So now not only the cops and "les petites jugettes" are after him, but he's got to listen to his wife telling him what a jerk he's been as well--and that line is tapped too, so we know just how much marital hot water he was in:
A cette époque, cela fait trois mois qu’il subit la pression. Depuis le 4 mars, jour où les perquisitions se sont succédé à ses domiciles, puis à son bureau. Désemparé, alors que les policiers viennent de quitter son bureau, il joint sa femme, sur son portable. Cette dernière le rembarre : « T’es au trentième dessous. Mais enfin… aussi… qu’est-ce que tu veux, t’es allé te magouiller avec Sarkozy et tout… T’aurais mieux fait de pas aller discuter avec ce Sarko, toi ! Je te l’avais dit à l’époque !!! Si tu t’en étais pas mêlé non plus hein… » Sursaut de Gilbert Azibert : « Oui mais attends. Je pense que je suis sur écoute téléphonique, hein… »
One almost feels sorry for the fellow.

I don't feel sorry.
I find this hilarious!

I typically don't like Libération, but this article was really worth reading:

Well Nicolas Sarkozy lost his bet. He was expecting a 70% (officially, meaning he expected 75% or more) and he got 64%. The real surprise of the day is that Bruno Le Maire got 29%.
