Catholic weekly slams 'squandering' in Lazio council
Scandal 'offends poor,' says Famiglia Cristiana25 September, 16:13
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''. photo: Franco Fiorito.
