(ANSA) - Rome, September 25 - A corruption scandal that has
engulfed the Lazio regional council is an ''indecent squandering
of resources that offends the poor, the unemployed and young
people without work'', Catholic weekly Famiglia Cristiana said
in an editorial on Tuesday.
On Monday Lazio governor Renata Polverini of Silvio
Berlusconi's People of Freedom party resigned and said she would
''expose'' misuse of party financing.
''From today on I can say everything I have seen,'' said
Polverini at a press conference.
The scandal exploded after Franco Fiorito, the PdL's former
regional chief, was placed under investigation this month for
suspected embezzlement of party funds.
Investigators are looking at around 800,000 euros of
financial transactions linked to Fiorito.
''It cries for revenge in the eyes of God,'' said the
Famiglia Cristiana editorial, which likened the council to a
''pigsty''.
''Those going into politics must take a loss, not make
gains.
''It is already a huge honour to serve the country. And
after one or two mandates they (the politicians) must all return
to their former occupations''.
