Silvio Berlusconi Sex Trial: Karima El Mahroug Set To Testify: via HuffPost

Silvio Berlusconi Sex Trial: Karima El Mahroug Set To Testify: via HuffPost http://huff.to/Vyo3oJ Why is this trial still going again? This case would literally fall to a no-evidence motion in the English/Canadian/American system. Yeah, Berlusconi is a creep, we’ve established that. So is John Edwards. The recent trend for politicians and politically connected families (see recent Kennedy acquittal after nurses assaulted a Kennedy, then accused him of assault, then went on national TV, then prosecutors charged him instead of the nurses) is disturbing. It’s banana republic stuff and it has no place in democracy. I don’t care if it’s prominent democrats or prominent right wingers like Berlusconi. Using criminal courts for political theatre is wrong and unprincipled.
