After Strauss-Kahn, more politicians face allegations in French press

FRENCH PAPERS, Wed., 25/5/2011: Strauss-Kahn is still front-page news in France but today, he’s not alone. Junior Minister Georges Tron is now the subject of allegations of sexual assault in Le Parisien. Elsewhere, Le Monde says Sarkozy keeps a close eye on the sexual misdeeds of French politicians with the help of the secret services. Strauss-Kahn’s behaviour was well-known to Sarkozy’s inner circle.
