She is the shadow of Eric Zemmour, his political advisor.
Omnipresent, Sarah Knafo accompanied the essayist these last few days in Toulon and Nice, where he presented his book “France has not said its last word” (Rumembré).
Apart from his activist activity, this centerpiece of a possible candidacy Zemmour works as a magistrate at the Court of Auditors.
A venerable institution, currently chaired by Pierre Moscovici, who does not like the mixture of genres and is keen on its reputation for impartiality. This is what prompted the Court of Auditors, according to an internal source, to ask several times in recent weeks to the young enarque (28 years old) to make herself available "for personal convenience", if she continued her activist activities. . The Court put forward its code of ethics - for the same reasons, another member of the institution accompanying a candidate for the LR primary has made himself available.
Sarah Knafo has just clarified her situation.
In a letter addressed to her superiors, she asks to be able to take the field from this Monday, September 20.
Clearly, during this period, Zemmour's advisor will no longer work and will no longer be paid by her administration.
She can then return to her post at the end of her lay-off period.
A departure that accredits the imminence of a campaign?
On the side of Sarah Knafo, we assure that she is at the origin of this departure and that it is the media coverage around her - several portraits are in particular in preparation - which pushed her to ask for her availability in order to protect the institution, even if there was no legal constraint for it to do so.
