Happy Birthday Silvio Berlusconi

Happy Birthday Silvio Berlusconi

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi turned 75 yesterday. The AC Milan soccer team sent greetings to the embattled billionaire — he owns the franchise — but he got brickbats from most Italians. His biggest gift was a new sex scandal: former Miss Montenegro Katarina Knezevic says she had an affair with him.

We don’t know if Mr. Berlusconi had a bunga bunga birthday party, but there’s news about his political party. Fashion exec Santo Versace has left the premier’s Popolo della Libertà (People of Freedom) party.
