A French government minister who was accused of sexual assault resigned on Sunday, the prime minister's office announced.
A government official accused of sexually assaulting two women he once worked with resigned Sunday in an apparent bid to spare the conservative French government the kind of notoriety the opposition has faced since its leading man, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was charged with attempting to rape a Manhattan hotel maid.
Francois Fillon's office noted Mr. Tron has denied the allegations, and the statement praised him for acting in the "general interest."
