Piedmont councillor steps down amid graft probe

Turin, February 20 - Piedmont Economy Councillor Massimo Giordano quit Wednesday, a day after police raided his home and offices in a corruption probe. Former Novara Mayor Giordano said he felt compelled to resign even though he had done nothing wrong and Piedmont Governor Roberto Cota, a fellow member of the regionalist Northern League party, had refused to accept the resignation Tuesday. "I have nothing to hide or fear but I realise that I can no longer continue my administrative work," Giordano said. His spokesperson said the accusations of misuse of public funds were "monstrous".
