Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, politicians in France are not supposed to be mega rich, unless they inherited or were successful businessmen. Their salaries are reasonable, their perks somewhat reasonable.

More often than not these scandals have to do with ensuring a political advantage, securing an electorate, that kind of thing, or so it seems.

But I suppose the "low" salaries that politicians get could be seen as an incentive to get richer by other means.
