Skip to comments.EU Parliament lost 5 million euros in Le Pen alleged jobs fraud, legal source says
Posted on 04/27/2017 9:20:55 PM PDT by Berlin_Freeper
A French legal source said Thursday that the EU Parliament has accused Marine Le Pen of using funds meant for European parliamentary assistants to pay staff for party work in France between 2012 and 2017, while still leader of the far-right National Front (FN).
The allegations, which Le Pen has denied, triggered an investigation in France.
The parliament had initially estimated the amount of the contested salaries to be 1.9 million euros ($2.1 million) but now believes the FN wrongfully spent 4,978,122 euros, the source said, quoting a note to French investigators from the parliament's legal team.
Patrick Maisonneuve, a lawyer for the parliament, confirmed the amount to French news agency AFP.

The EU wouldn’t make up stuff about Le Pen would they?
Of course they would.
Yep, Le Pen is getting the full LeTrump from ze press!
Triggered. Hmmm...I think we may have found our key word.
Funny how they couldn’t be bothered to “find” it until now... It’s almost like they realized she can win...
It’s a little late for globalist interests in France to be “outraged” by crooked politicians.
Hell, they were hoping Alain Juppe would be the right of center nominee.
Yes they would, but they can't accuse the Russians of hacking the election, so they choose something else.
“Le Pen, specifically, is accused of paying her bodyguard, Thierry Legier, and her chief of staff, Catherine Griset, with EU parliamentary funds. Le Pen is believed to have submitted a “fictional” work contract before the European Parliament presenting Legier as an assistant, while Griset was living near Paris and working on behalf of the FN in France rather than at the European assembly.”
That, if true, could be a real problem for Le Pen.
No, but I bet they will accuse Trump of doing so ...
Yes, the leftists in France, and the leftists in America, probably colluded on that.
But did she sleep with her teacher?
If not, it could be bad news for the slandering islamo lovin globalists when they’re hanged from the eiffel tower.
The Globalist elitists are getting very scared.
What I really want to know is if Le Pen tried to run a Le Pen University and defraud her students.
