That was one of the silliest and most pathetic tactics I’ve ever heard. Gregoire just ~wallows~ in lameness.
I think Rossi is going to win it.

That was such a cheap stunt... I expect more from Comrade Gragoire berfore this is done.
They helped make this law, who are they to complain about the loophole?
Good for Rossi.
