Viewed from France, the Benjamin Griveaux affair is exceptional, but it is not in the United States. “Here, there is no privacy. Five years ago, a Democratic candidate ran for mayor of New York. The press published naughty photos sent to his mistress, he was forced to withdraw”, recalls journalist Agnès Vahramian, duplex from Washington, in the United States.
There are two reasons for this. “Private life in general and that of politicians in particular is not as well protected as in France. There is also the strength of religion and morals.

In the United States, attempts are made to demine privacy before entering politics.
