Berlusconi Bites Back

There’s a Clintonesque ring here, isn’t there? “I’ve never paid a woman,” Italian Prime Minister Silivio Berlusconi insisted in an interview with the magazine Chi, which he owns. “I never understood where the satisfaction is when you're missing the pleasure of conquest.” Berlusconi was accused last week of having a local businessman pay for women to attend his parties, at least one of whom he allegedly slept with.
