Police raids against French presidential candidate
PARIS -- Police have conducted raids against the French presidential candidate François Fillon in Paris. Fillon is accused of corruption.

French police on Thursday morning conducted raids against the French Senate in Paris, looking for evidence that the Republican presidential candidate François Fillon has misused public funds.

Fillon is suspected of having given his wife Penelope public money over a ten year period, for work it is not possible to document that she has done. Now police have expanded the investigation to also include the couple's children, and the police raids in Paris on Thursday were conducted to try to secure evidence in that aspect of the case.

60 percent of respondents in a recent poll believe Fillon should resign as presidential candidate, something that an increasing number of people in his own party also have expressed.

Fillon, however, denies any wrongdoing and claims to be the victim of a political smear campaign.
