Sarkozy scandal grows

UMP candidate Nicolas Sarkozy is facing more accusations of unethical conduct as head of the Interior Ministry. Besides the allegations concerning Segolene Royal related investigations, Sarkozy is facing a new charge of abusing his power for personal benefit. Earlier this January, the son of Nicolas Sarkozy had his scooter stolen from outside his house in an upscale Parisian suburb. Once the scooter was located ten days later, "Police carried out DNA tests to bring charges against three youths accused of stealing the scooter."

In another incident, the RG, the same police unit accused of "spying" on Royal, is found to have not only monitored and increase protection around Sarkozy's campaign headquarters, but even driven campaign members around. They claim to be doing do diligence, but after the last several allegations, you can be sure that everything is going to be given a second look.
