Italian Minister for Sports Josefa Idem attends a press conference at Chigi palace, Premier's office, in Rome, Saturday, June 22, 2013. Premier Enrico Letta's cross-party government is facing one of its first major fissures as pressure mounts for the equal opportunities minister to resign over tax troubles. Josefa Idem, a German-born eight-time Olympic kayaker, has admitted that there were irregularities in the tax payments on one of her residences. She has apologized, saying she had trusted professionals to build and register the structure correctly, and said the problems were being fixed. (AP Photo/Alessandra Tarantino) less
