Charity Shootout

The French foundation to combat muscular diseases (AFM) has filed suit for slander against Pierre Bergé, France's wealthiest myopathe, who accused the charity of misusing its wealth and urged people not to contribute to its recent telethon. When it comes to misusing wealth, Bergé knows a thing or two: he was convicted of insider trading for selling shares of Yves Saint-Laurent in 1992, just before the company issued a poor financial report. Once the mécène of Ségolène Royal, he has lately changed his mind about the former presidential candidate and reduced her to la portion congrue.
