Elections are in the air…

After Cuffaro and Don Raffaele, please do us the courtesy of not voting another mafioso!!
The parliament of the autonomous region of Sicily will be reelected soon.
Salvatore Cuffaro, president of the region till 2008, has been convicted of Mafia ties and is by now serving a 10 year prison sentence. Raffaele Lombardo, officially former president, is under investigation -together with his brother- for favors-for-votes exchanges and for Mafia ties. Sure, one is considered innocent until proven guilty, but many Sicilians are just having enough of a certain “culture”.
