Diamond Dropping Fundraising Role for Romney in London

Robert Diamond, who today stepped down as chief executive of Barclays Plc, will no longer co-host a London campaign fundraiser this month for presumptive U.S. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul confirmed.

Diamond resigned amid political pressure the London-based bank faced after it admitted to rigging global interest rates.
