Fillon Scandal?

Today there is a new wrinkle in the campaign: a possible Fillon scandal. His wife was paid over 500,000 euros as his "parliamentary assistant," although other members of his staff say they never saw her, and she was also paid a salary by La Revue des Deux Mondes, where none of the staff ever met her. The latter publication is owned by an industrialist friend of Fillon's and paid her 5,000 euros a month.
