The French have obviously never heard the expression, “What goes on in Vegas, stays in Vegas.”
A French investigation into a Las Vegas tech party is putting new pressure on Left-wing President Emmanuel Macron’s labor minister — and possibly the president himself.
The Paris prosecutor’s office opened a formal judicial inquiry Friday into suspected irregularities in the organization of a costly, high-profile event at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show that Macron headlined when he was a French government minister.
The inquiry is for “favoritism,” but it doesn’t name a suspected perpetrator yet, leaving it to investigators to determine later who might be at fault.
The company tasked with organizing the “French Tech Night” event, advertising firm Havas, is believed to have won the contract without undergoing open tender procedures, among other suspected problems.
