French minister Georges Tron resigns

A French government minister accused of sexual assault resigned yesterday.

Junior civil service minister Georges Tron is the subject of a preliminary investigation into charges of rape and sexual assault after two women alleged that he had attacked them between 2007 and 2010.

One said she was inspired to come forward after a hotel chambermaid in New York claimed she was sexually assaulted by International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Mr Tron, 53, is a member of President Nicolas Sarkozy’s conservative UMP party. A statement from Prime Minister François Fillon’s office noted Mr Tron has denied the allegations and praised him for acting in the “general interest”.

The two women, aged 34 and 36, once worked at the town hall of Draveil, south of Paris, where Mr Tron is mayor. They told Le Parisien newspaper that Mr Tron assaulted them behind locked doors at the town hall.

French people are sick and tired of hearing all these sexual accusations coming from all over the world and all the same they are condemned the political for hiding this kind of information. Here are some views from Le

Curieux cette république irréprochable! Tron, supposé innocent mais accusé démissionne! Lagarde présumé innocent et accusé ne démissionne pas, au contraire, elle est promue! Je ne comprends pas la logique du bon père de famille Sarko et le meilleur gouvernement du monde!

Curious this irreproachable republic! Tron, presumed innocent but accused resigns! Lagarde presumed innocent and accused does not resign, on the contrary, she is promoted! I do not understand the logic of the good family father Sarko and the best government of the world!

Que d’histoires de “fesses” dans la politique française! Est ce que la libido de ces messieurs ne se contrôlent plus jetant un discrédit de plus sur le monde politique français. Le monde doute  maintenant de notre morale. Avec de pareils exemples que faut-il dire à nos jeunes

That of sexual stories in the French politics! There sirs can’t control their libido raising depreciation toward the French political world. The world doubts our morality. With this kind of examples, what should we say to young people

L’action gouvernementale était déjà bien polluée avec tous les scandales connus et avérés…

The governmental action was already well polluted with all the known and proved scandals…

Il n’y a en a pas un de pur, de net dans ce gouvernement et ce sont eux qui nous font la morale !

Seul le fric, leurs avantages les intéressent, mais quelle honte !

No one is pure or clear in this government and they do lecture us!

Only the cash, their advantages interest them, but what a shame!

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx
