MILAN (AP) The Italian Olympic Committee has voted unanimously to support Rome's bid for the 2024 Summer Games.
All 64 sports federation presidents supported the candidacy at a CONI council meeting on Thursday at the world's fair Expo in Milan.
Rome Mayor Ignazio Marino also attended the vote, another sign of support from the capital after the city council voted 38-6 in favor of the bid last week.
The latest vote in favor of the bid comes amid a widening corruption scandal in Rome, and after newspaper Corriere Della Sera published a front-page editorial on Tuesday questioning the candidacy's benefits.
Bid leader Luca Cordero di Montezemolo said it was noteworthy that the vote was held in Milan because ''we are selecting other cities that may be involved'' with the bid.
