French President François Hollande’s public opinion rating is in the mud. His fortunes have shrunk as the Cahuzac scandal swells, a symbolic bad example for the Republic, Spanish television TVE reported.

France 2 television sketched out a portrait of Cahuzac as a seemingly bright man with a dazzling future who blew it all by lying, earning almost universal disapproval.

Swiss investigators were ready when Jerome Cahuzac confessed. Swiss television TSR tracks the preparation, the discovery and the zeroing in on the infamous bank account.

As if one scandal weren’t enough, what a coincidence, along came another one, dubbed ‘Offshore Leaks’. Italian Rai Uno reported how it added to Hollande’s burden.
