They always find one to shoot.

From the Times (London):

A pianist employed by Silvio Berlusconi has been found guilty of lying to prosecutors in a bid to cover up sexual antics at the notorious bunga-bunga parties hosted by the former Italian prime minister.

Danilo Mariani was handed a two-year suspended sentence by a court in Siena for claiming that Berlusconi’s physical contact with his young female party guests was limited to “shaking their hands”.


  • “He wasn’t groping them, he was practicing his scale fingerings.”
