Gloves Off

It looks like the gloves are off in the war between Laurence Parisot and parties unknown who would like to see her ousted as head of the Medef. L'Express reveals that she pays her personal advisor, Rosine Lapresle, 300,000 euros a year, making her the highest paid employee of the Medef. Lapresle's name has been linked to Parisot's before, in particular in this article dated last June. Given the nature of French libel laws, both publications dance around their innuendo. The elephant has nevertheless been released into the room.

Yesterday it was Sarko and his personal trainer; today it's Parisot and her personal advisor.
