French politics: Jean, the other Sarkozy

Like others here at Gadling, I just can’t get enough of Nicolas Sarkozy gossip. Last week the French President outdid himself at the Salon d’Agriculture when he swore at a man who refused to shake his hand. Although you probably already know that Sarkozy recently married ex-supermodel Carla Bruni, you may not know the most recent piece of Sarkozy gossip: his son, Jean Sarkozy, is currently running for local office, and he’s only 21.

The oldest of the Sarkozy children, Jean Sarkozy is running in a “canton, ” the smallest administrative division in France, in the Parisian suburb of South Neuilly. Following in his father’s footsteps, Jean Sarkozy is also running under the ruling UMP party.

French politics may bore you, so let’s get down to the fun stuff. Not only was Jean Sarkozy featured on the Most Beautiful Man website for being charged with a hit and run, but I also tracked down his profile on Facebook. Apparently he is well liked by the ladies. If the Sarkozy dynasty wasn’t “celebritized” before, things are only going to get better. Watch out Nicolas, you just might have some friendly family competition for political drama.
