Le Pen's Second Life
A few days ago the Second Life Herald reported that members of the National Front Youth had created a virtual office in the online world Second Life in order to promote the candidature of French presidential candidate Jean-Marie Le Pen. Today people from the Herald visited the Le Pen headquarters in Second Life and were given a tour by a character dressed in camouflage and wearing a beret. Inside were a variety of different campaign posters in English and French, although as of now it is sparsely furnished.
Over the past week we've seen a review of Segolene Royal's use of blogging to build an online campaign and Nicolas Sarkozy call for future internet regulation. Mr. Le Pen has suddenly brought this campaign to an all new level.
