Roman Polanski Has A Friend In A Really High Place — President Nicolas Sarkozy

Roman Polanski, who has dual citizenship in Poland and France, reportedly enlisted French President Nicolas Sarkozy in his bid for leniency in his child-sex case, according to the French newspaper L’Express. Polanski had Sarkozy hand-deliver a letter to President Barack Obama during last week’s nuclear weapons summit. In the missive, Polanski wrote that he believed the 47 days he spent in a California jail in 1977 and two months he spent confined in a Swiss jail last year were enough punishment for his now 32-year-old case. A spokesperson from Obama’s press office had no knowledge of the letter yesterday, but something tells me Obama, a father of two daughters, wouldn’t tarnish his presidency by getting involved in Polanski’s case.
