The predicament of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi finds himself to be in is hilarious, mostly because I’m not Italian and it really has no bearing on my life. He’s been accused of paying for sex, specifically, paying a minor for sex, which, even in Italy, is a no-no.
And it gets better: Prosecutors allege that Berlusconi has had sex with a SECOND under-aged hooker! That’s right, not just one, but two! Oh Silvio, you rogue you. He’s arguing that this entire investigation is politically motivated, and that it’s his enemies that are trying to bring him down. That’s right. Enemies. It’s not his insatiable appetite for young hookers that poses a threat to him, but enemies! Of course.
