http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...#ixzz1tQohb2e2Nicolas Sarkozy's dwindling hopes of being re-elected to the French presidency were last night rocked by new evidence that Colonel Gaddafi donated £42 million to the campaign that brought him to power.
French law bans candidates from receiving cash payments above £6,300, but a news website claimed that the massive donation was laundered through bank accounts in Panama and Switzerland.
Mr Sarkozy is now under huge pressure to explain himself in the light of what his opponents called compelling evidence.
A document made public in Paris is said to show that the French leader and the former Libyan dictator made an illegal financial deal that propelled Mr Sarkozy to power in 2007.
Poor Berlusconi must feel real jealous if these allegations are true.
This could be what propels Hollande to victory in the second ballot
What would be sweeter yet is of Sarkozy was held criminally accountable for this. Even better: if he had to repay the money somehow... not to the Gaddafi of course... but to benefit France.
indeed. Hopefully the French judiciary makes a better example of him than the Italian judiciary did with Berlusconi... considering it was close to diddly squat it shouldn't be too difficult.

The only reason the Italian judiciary can never convict Berlusconi is because he always changes the law about legal deadlines right before he's due to be sentenced.
Show us not the aim without the way, for ends and means on earth are so entangled
That changing one, you change the other too; each different path brings other ends in view
