Letta’s Minister won’t resign despite tax scandal

Mrs Josefa Idem.

Letta’s Minister of Equal Opportunities, former Olympic champion Josefa Idem, has announced that she will not resign despite accusations that she avoided paying the infamous Italian real estate tax on a gym she owns.

The announcement was given yesterday during a press conference organized on purpose by Mrs Idem.

Mrs Idem explained that she, like everyone else in Italy, has her accounts and taxes managed by a professional accountant. She is ready to pay any penalty anyhow.

Indeed in Italy it is very difficult for a politician to resign, no matter how big the scandal he or she was involved in.
