An Emmanuel Macron aide who died after collapsing on stage during a campaign rally is suspected to be the whistleblower who leaked details about Macron’s financial misdeeds.
Socialist lawmaker Corinne Erhel, was the last person to speak at the rally on Friday, when she suddenly and mysteriously fell to the ground. She was immediately rushed to hospital, where she was pronounced dead after suffering a massive heart attack at the age of 50.
Intelligence agencies have been using “heart-attack gun” technology for years, according to a Congressional testimony video filmed in 1975. Could it be that Corinne Erhel was the victim of such technology?
AFP reports: Corinne Erhel, 50, was the last to speak at the rally Friday in western France when she suddenly fell to the ground. She was rushed to hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
“I learned with immense sadness of the death of Corinne Erhel at the event in Plouisy, where she was speaking to 300 activists,” wrote French lower house speaker Claude Bartolone, a socialist.
“A member of parliament since 2007, she was fully invested in her parliamentary work, while still remaining close to the people,” said socialist President Francois Hollande.
Erhel joined the centrist political movement “En Marche” (“On the Move”) of Macron, who polls predict will beat his far-right rival Marine Le Pen in Sunday’s decisive run-off.
