Francesco Spano, the head of Italy’s anti-discrimination office, resigned after being accused of spending government funds on gay sex clubs, Reuters reports.

The government funds were supposed to fight racism; instead, they went to maintain three gay sex clubs disguised as cultural centers.

An investigative TV show called The Hyenas uncovered the scandal. They visited the so-called “cultural centers” and were greeted by male sex workers inviting them into “dark rooms.”

Spano’s department had given up to 55,000 euros to each of these clubs.

Spano quit after the show’s broadcast, and now the opposition party is calling for the anti-discrimination office to be shut down.
