See this is what was missing during the Lewinsky scandal

Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi and wife Veronica Lario in public spat over his party’s plan to field attractive young women as candidates in June’s European Parliament election.

Ms Lario vented her feelings in an email to the Italian news agency Ansa, which was then picked up by the national newspapers.

She said it was “to entertain the emperor” that beautiful young women were fielded to stand as candidates for Mr Berlusconi’s People of Freedom (PdL) party in June’s European Parliament election.

“But behind the facade of curvaceous feminine beauty, what is even more serious is (Mr Berlusconi’s) impudence and lack of reserve” she continued, it offends “the credibility of all women”.

Mr Berlusconi later told reporters that he was sorry his wife had apparently believed “what she read in the papers”.
