France: A Drone Campaigning… for President

Dédé l'Abeillaud (another name for a drone – a male bee in a colony of social bees, which inspires his costume) is the self-proclaimed candidate of biodiversity for the French presidential election of 2012. He boasts of winning over 300 promised votes for local officials, as much as the National Front candidate Marine Le Pen. He humorously details his commitments, particularly the defense of bees, and his political agenda on his blog [fr], where his press representative is said to be “responsible for the clearing of the conscience”.
