Paris mayor candidate withdraws after private videos

-

Benjamin Griveaux, a Paris mayoral candidate supported by President Emmanuel Macron, withdrew from the race this Friday after the broadcast of a sexual video.

Following “ignoble attacks, I decided to withdraw my candidacy for the Paris City Council,” Griveaux told France Presse.

A sexual video and text messages addressed to a woman were released on Wednesday over the internet and expanded on social media, reaching the candidacy of Benjamin Griveaux, a former French government spokesman.

“My family and I have been receiving defamatory messages, anonymous attacks, disclosures of private conversations and even death threats for over a year,” he said.

“A website and social media have spread the ignoble attacks, jeopardizing my private life. My family does not deserve this,” he said, stressing that he does not want to expose family members to public “scams”.

Griveaux is close to the French head of state, having supported Macron from the first hour.

The former executive spokesman also told France Presse that he discussed with Emmanuel Macron on Thursday the decision to withdraw the candidacy with the head of state saying he would support “any position” that was taken to protect family members .
