Rachida Dati, who was France's first woman justice minister in Nicolas Sarkozy's government, has said that certain politicians should have their quadruple, triple lives disclosed.
Dati, whose own romantic history was frequently raised while she was justice minister between 2007 and 2009, said that high-profile women involved in adulterous affairs were treated unfairly compared to men.
The 46-year-old politician has spoken out after what she described as "shameful" revelations disclosed about the romantic life of the country's first lady, Valerie Trierweiler.
"I think it's shameful what's done and what's been written about Valerie Trierweiler," the Telegraph quoted as her saying in Europe 1 radio station.
"Why not disclose the quadruple, triple lives of certain politicians, of some bosses who do not behave well with women or who sometimes behave in a manner which is very loose?" she said.
Last week, it emerged that Trierweiler was once the shared mistress of Francois Hollande, now France's socialist president, and minister Patrick Devedjian, a conservative.
Not only was Trierweiler married at the time but so was Devedjian, and Hollande, who was living with the mother of his four kids. (ANI)
