ARGENTINE CLEAN-UP PRESIDENT MACRI FINDS SCANDALS OF HIS OWN

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Mauricio Macri, who arrived to Argentina's presidency vowing to clean up corruption, now finds himself ensnared in scandals of his own.

Federal prosecutors are investigating at least six cases involving Macri, some of them the outgrowth of his family's extensive business holdings. Allegations range from influence trafficking to money laundering.

So far none of the cases has resulted in charges against the president, and he denies wrongdoing, but they've become a headache for his center-right party heading into legislative elections in October.

To fend off possible damage, Macri on Wednesday announced measures to avoid any conflicts of interest in his administration and urged the country's political class to back his political and economic reforms.
