By definition, as a Prime Minister I cannot be a liar…Only I can turn this country around…If I, taking care of everyone’s interests, also take care of my own, you can’t talk about a conflict of interest…Mussolini never killed anyone. Mussolini used to send people on vacation in internal exile…I don’t need to go into office for the power. I have

beautiful wife, a beautiful family. I am making a sacrifice…I will try to meet your expectations, and I promise from

According to Forbes, Berlusconi is Italy’s third richest man, estimated to be worth $9.0 billion (US$) in 2010. He has an extensive record of criminal allegations, including mafia collusion, false accounting, tax fraud, corruption and bribery of police officers and judges. According to journalists Marco Travaglio and Enzo Biagi, Berlusconi entered politics to save his companies from bankruptcy and himself from convictions. He owns via Mediaset 3 of 7 national tv channels. He has never been tried on charges relating to the Cosa Nostra, although several Mafia turncoats have stated that Berlusconi had connections with the Sicilian criminal association.
