    Pamela Anderson waded into the upcoming French presidential elections Wednesday, seeking to know where the candidates stand on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, NBC News reported.

    The "Baywatch" star took to Twitter to ask what conservative Francois Fillion and centrist Emmanuel Macron would do for Assange if elected. She noted that the far-left's Jean-Luc Melenchon and the far-right's Marine Le Pen would give citizenship to Assange. 

    "Julian, I and his supporters are watching the French election closely and obviously will support an effort to reunite him with his family," Anderson wrote to her over 1 million followers.

    Assange was granted asylum in Ecuador in 2012 and has been sheltering in the country's U.K. embassy since then to avoid extradition to Sweden over allegations of sexual assault.
