Gaël Perdriau definitively expelled by the Republicans

Saint-Etienne mayor Gaël Perdriau, who was implicated in a sextape extortion scandal, was finally expelled by Republicans on Tuesday, we learned from the party.

The decision comes as no surprise after the party launched proceedings to oust the 50-year-old mayor on September 13 following a series of revelations by Mediapart about a sextape blackmail.

The city of 175,000 has been rocked by the affair since late August, which is at the center of a judicial probe after a racketeering complaint was filed by former centre-right first MP Gilles Artigues.

The scandal prompted Gaël Perdriau to sack his chief of staff and then relinquish his representative functions in the city and metropolis, while one of his deputies, accused of filming a compromising video to politically neutralize Mr Artigues, resigned submitted.

The three men were taken into police custody in mid-September following the confessions of a former close friend of City Hall at the Mediapart site, who accused the mayor and his entourage of fomenting this “barbouzage de manners” by paying him through welfare payments. fictitious invoice to two cultural associations subsidized by the town hall.

Former Republican Vice President Gaël Perdriau was fired from his post by Christian Jacob in December 2021 after criticizing Valérie Pécresse and Eric Ciotti.
