Now I’am here, now I’m there…

That is what some of the members elected to the Genova city council have to say at the beginning of every meeting. Their presence is then recorded, assuring that they will receive the 130,00 USD for the day.

The fact that just after acknowledging their presence, they leave… is just a mere coincidence. Mr. Aldo Praticò (PDL) entered the room at 2:48 pm and left at 2:49 pm and that minute gave him 130,00 USD. He was there for 1 minute on feb 16th, 2 minutes on the 15th, 3 on jan 23rd, and a staggering 4 minutes on jan 18th. This according to what La Repubblica reports here: link.
