OFFICIAL RESIGNS: Italian Premier Mario Monti's new government suffered its first ethics casualty Tuesday with the resignation of a top official who allegedly received complimentary vacations at an exclusive Tuscan resort.
DENIAL OF WRONGDOING: Carlo Malinconico, Monti's undersecretary, quit Tuesday although he insisted he did nothing wrong.
THE VACATIONS: Italian media have reported that a businessman under investigation for alleged corruption in a public contracts case paid at least part of the euro19,876 (over $25,000) bill for Malinconico's summer weekend getaways in 2007 and 2008 at the five-star Il Pellicano resort on the Tuscan coast.
