|Berlusconi says Fuck Bitches, Run Country|
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi admits he paid a young exotic dancer at the center of a prostitution scandal $60,000 - but he swears it wasn't for sex!
The 74-year-old politician playboy says he showered Karima el Mahroug, a/k/a Ruby the Heart Stealer, with cash to keep her from becoming a hooker.
Berlusconi said he wanted to help Mahroug, who was 17 at the time, to buy laser hair-removal equipment so she could open a beauty spa, the Guardian newspaper reported. She is now 18.
"The girl told a very painful and moving story," he told reporters outside of a Milan court Monday before a separate trial on fraud charges.
"I gave her money to help take away need, for reasons that are exactly the opposite, so she would not be forced to be a prostitute," he said.
Berlusconi is charged with paying for sex with Mahroug, who authorities called an underage prostitute.

The point is in America we flip out about one (free) blowjob, and in Europe they are barely upset that their Prime Minister probably paied a 17-year-old to fuck him. Who is buying this buying her to not become a whore crap? Really bro, that's the best you got? Pathetic.
