Bruni smack in the middle of nepotism charges


Francois Baudot, a 60-year-old former interior designer,   Bruni’s friend for 15 years, has been appointed as France’s new Inspector General of Cultural Affairs despite the government appointments commission initially deciding that he was not suitable for the job, the ‘Le Point’ reported.

But, then the panel changed its mind after its members were informed that President Nicolas Sarkozy, his Prime Minister Francois Fillon and Culture Minister F Mitterrand all backed Baudot for the 4,500 pounds-a-month new post, according to the leading French news magazine.

However, the magazine has also admitted that Baudot — a former government commissioner for France’s museums and monuments — had a “pretty good CV for the new job,” British newspaper ‘The Daily Telegraph’ reported.
