WAIT A SECOND...:

French far-right plagued by shady candidates (The Local, 18 Mar 2015)
 
Le Pen and co have worked hard to "de-demonize" the National Front by rooting out candidates with a shady past or who are liable to the odd racist view or two.
 
Yet her efforts can only go so far as stories once again emerge in the run-up to Sunday's ballot of skeletons emerging from the closets of several far-right candidates. Other candidates appear to have simply spoken their views, forcing the party's PR team into overdrive.
 
For the party's founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, who has been convicted of hate speech it's no big deal.

...are there any who aren't shady?  It's a neo-Nazi party.
