Gilles Bourdouleix (born April 15, 1960 in Angers, Maine-et-Loire) is a member of the National Assembly of France.[1] He represents the Maine-et-Loire department and is a member of the party Debout la République.[2] He was the mayor of Cholet, Maine-et-Loire, from 1995 to 2008.[1] In July 2013 he garnered controversy for allegedly saying Adolf Hitler had not killed enough Romani people or as they are called in France "gens du voyage." He left the newly formed UDI political party, soon afterwards, due to the ongoing controversy his words caused, but states that he did not say those exact words and that his remarks were misinterpreted.[3]
