FSLN Politician admits prostitution; resigns

             MANAGUA -- Politician Roberto Calderon said Monday he will resign as a
             delegate for the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) after admitting he
             has worked as a prostitute.

             Miguel Angel Casco, also a representative for the FSLN, told EFE that Calderon
             ``temporarily resigned'' from his political duties.

             Calderon, 27, charged women between $40 and $80 for his services, according to
             a report in the Nicaraguan weekly Siete Dias. Calderon apparently resorted to
             prostitution because of financial problems. ``I accept responsibility for my actions
             and the consequences that will arise,'' he wrote in a letter to the FSLN.
