Crowdfunding Set Up For French Presidential Candidate Who Can’t Save

When it rains, it pours, especially on French presidential candidate Francois Fillon.

Fillon was the front runner in the coming elections until he was accused of putting his wife and kids on his Parliamentary payroll for ghost jobs. Then, he told a journalist last week to “go f*#k himself.”

And since claiming that he could not save any money on his ~$24,000/month income, the satirical online magazine Le Gorafi has set up a crowdfunding campaign to help Fillon make ends meet.
