Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) is demanding the replacement of Raymond L. Flynn, the U.S. ambassador to the Vatican, on grounds that the former Boston mayor faces "serious allegations of ethical misconduct." Flynn, a Democrat, was reprimanded twice by former Secretary of State Warren Christopher--once for what was considered inappropriate criticism of Republicans and again for permitting his campaign committee to pay his expenses as ambassador.
