Silvio "Mussolini was Benevolent" Berlusconi's Choice for Senate Leader!
Andreotti was appointed senator-for-life in 1991, even with the demise of his party after the so-called Clean Hands campaign- financing scandal and accusations of links to the Sicilian Mafia. He was convicted of having ties to the mob and enlisting the Mafia to kill a journalist. He was subsequently acquitted in 2004 by the country's highest appeals court.Berlusconi, who said once that Mussolini didn't kill any Jews during the Holocaust (undoubtedly a form of Holocaust Denial), obviously has deep feelings about the sanctity of the press.
