Locked down Sydney left leaderless after Premier Berejiklian's corruption resignation

The leader of Australia's most populous state resigns amid a corruption investigation, leaving Sydneysiders -- deep in months of lockdown -- without a political leader. A state corruption watchdog is investigating allegations including whether she favoured a former boyfriend, then a member of parliament, in the awarding of grants in his electorate. The projects included funding for the Australian Clay Target Association and the Riverina Conservatorium of Music in Wagga Wagga, a small New South Wales town. Berejiklian denied the allegations.
