French Mayor, Upset by Vote of Le Pen Backers, Says He May Quit Rather Than Serve Those ‘Assholes’
Daniel Delomez, the mayor of Annezin in northern France, wasn’t happy that Marine Le Pen won 38 percent of his town’s votes in the French presidential election.
“It is catastrophic,” Delomez told the French publication L’Avenir de l’Artois. “It’s possible that I will step down as I do not want to dedicate my life to assholes.”

According to The Independent, the town’s second choice was far-left candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon, who received 19.25 percent of the vote.

Le Pen, the leader of the far-right National Front, has promised a “Frexit” referendum. She advanced to a French election runoff with the centrist, pro-Europe newcomer Emmanuel Macron. The next round of voting is May 7. The winner could determine whether France remains aligned with the European Union or follows the United Kingdom in leaving the EU.
