French presidential election candidate for the right-wing Les Republicains (LR) party Francois Fillon (R) shakes hands with supporters as he is accompanied by former finance minister minister Francois Baroin (C) following his visit to the Mediatheque du Grand Troyes, in Troyes, northeastern France, on February 7, 2017.
Fillon seeks to get his campaign back on track less than three months before the first round of the election on April 23, after it emerged that his wife Penelope earned more than 800,000 euros (USD 860,000) over a decade as a parliamentary aide to her husband and an ally. / AFP / François NASCIMBENI        (Photo credit should read FRANCOIS NASCIMBENI/AFP/Getty Images)
