Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Alexander has a point here : the financing of the electoral system (presidential etc..) would be illegal in most European countries. Most of the French corruption scandals (besides some expensive flats and cronyism) are about illegal financing of political parties. The new laws passed some decade ago, make that these practices have been widely reduced. Top politicians like Juppe have been recently indicted and condemned for illegal funding, but it's very rare that you find politicians putting BIG money in their own pockets.
