Pigs fly: Chirac “did not need the cash”
From TigerHawk, Saddam spies ‘offered to help Chirac get re-elected’ (emphasis mine)
Saddam Hussein’s spies planned a wide-ranging scheme to bribe members of the French political elite in the run-up to the Anglo-American invasion, including an offer to help fund President Jacques Chirac’s 2002 re-election campaign.
That bid failed, according to Iraqi secret service papers seen by The Daily Telegraph, when Mr Chirac’s aides allegedly said they did not need the cash.
Jacques didn’t need the cash because obviously he had spare change from his lunch money.
