Usher at Vatican suspected of running homosexual prostitution ring
Catholic World News - March 04, 2010
An Italian man who serves as an usher at the Vatican, already facing criminal charges for graft, now may face additional charges that he directed a homosexual prostitution ring. Angelo Balducci, a former director of Rome's public-works department, was originally arrested on corruption charges. But police now reportedly have evidence that he arranged "escort" services for young men, including some seminarians in Rome. He allegedly used his connections as a "Gentleman of His Holiness"-- a member of the group that provides ushers for papal ceremonies.
