Fillon Flour-Bombed

France’s scandal-plagued conservative candidate Francois Fillon was hit in the face with flour on Thursday by a young man wearing a Fillon T-shirt as he prepared to address supporters in the eastern city of Strasbourg.
Fillon, 63, has endured a wretched campaign since he was charged over accusations he gave his wife a fake job as his parliamentary aide for which she was paid hundreds of thousands of euro, France24 reported. The former prime minister was making his way to the stage in a hall in the eastern city of Strasbourg when a man in a T-shirt bearing the slogan “Students for Fillon” emptied a packet of flour on his face and down his suit.
Security guards wrestled the man to the floor and one of the guards tore off the T-shirt. From the podium, Fillon later told the rally the incident was more evidence that he is “the target of a harassment” campaign.
