Associated Press, Italy Venice's mayor resigned Friday, just a day after being released from house arrest and resuming work under a plea deal over illegal political financing. Mayor Giorgio Orsoni indicated a lack of support from the Democratic Party since his arrest last week in a wide-ranging corruption probe related to construction of underwater barriers to protect the lagoon city from flooding.
