CWN Editor's Note: An investigation into government corruption in Italy has unearthed evidence of a plan to win contracts with the Catholic Church by cultivating a relationship with Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican Secretary of State.

The available evidence suggests that the scheme was unsuccessful. The alleged conspirators discussed an approach to Cardinal Parolin, but there is no indication that they went forward with their plan.
