  Liberal MP Nicola Di Iorio broke his silence about his absence from Parliament Hill on Friday, saying he is performing unspecified tasks assigned by the prime minister himself.
   In an interview Friday, Di Iorio said he doesn't see any issue with holding down a second job — in fact he sees it as a plus.
  Elected officials are better off staying "anchored" in reality by holding down another job, he said. He acknowledged such situations can lead to conflicts of interest that undermine confidence in democratic institutions, but he said it is not true in his case.
  "What undermines public confidence in institutions is having politicians who cling to their jobs and who will do everything to get re-elected because they want to keep the salary they have," Di Iorio told The Canadian Press.
