Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi gestures during a right-wing youth party meeting in Rome September 9, 2009. Reports that 30 women attended 18 parties hosted by Berlusconi and some were paid to have sex with guests have added to the Italian leader’s problems at a time of speculation that his grip on power may be weakening. A cabinet source said there was no comment on the reports on Wednesday in Corriere della Sera and La Stampa — two respected Italian dailies — suggesting Berlusconi indulged his taste for young women on a larger scale than hitherto suspected.
