Vatican communications chief resigns following "Lettergate" scandal - Vatican

VATICAN CITY, March 21 (Reuters) - Monsignor Dario Vigano, the head of the Vatican communications department who was caught up in the so-called “Lettergate” scandal, has resigned, the Vatican said on Wednesday.

Vigano, whose formal title was Prefect of the Secretariat for Communication, had come under sharp criticism all last week for blurring part of a photograph of a letter by former Pope Benedict and for withholding another section of the missive before releasing the entire text on Saturday.
