Berlusconi's Dentist for Higher Office?

The attack on Silvio Berlusconi in December may have cost him a few teeth, but he may have discovered something better: The dental hygienist who helped fix his mouth—a former showgirl named Nicole Minetti—is running for higher office for his People of Freedom Party. Minetti is running for regional councilor for Lombardy, the elections for which will be held in March. Formerly, Minetti was a dancer on a TV show on one of Berlusconi’s television channels.
