Jérôme Cahuzac (born in Talence on 19 June 1952) is a French cosmetic surgeon and politician who, until his appointment as Junior Minister for the Budget at the Ministry of the Economy, Finance, and External Trade by President François Hollande on 16 May 2012, was a member of the National Assembly of France where he represented the 3rd constituency of Lot-et-Garonne on behalf of the Socialist Party.[1] He resigned as a Minister on 19 March 2013 due to tax fraud allegations but maintained he was innocent.[2] On 2 April he admitted on his blog that he had held a secret foreign bank account for about 20 years.[3] As a consequence, he was officially excluded as a member of the Socialist Party on 9 April 2013.[4]
