Trial to begin of former French PM over fake jobs scandal

Former French PM Francois Fillon and his wife go on trial Monday over a fake jobs scandal that wrecked his 2017 run for president. Fillon’s bid for the presidency was threatened after reports emerged of him having paid his wife hundreds of thousands of euros for doing little, if any, work as his assistant. Investigators estimate Penelope received 1 million euros for work between the 1980s to 2013.
