(Newser) – Three feminist protesters added a little zing to Italy's crucial elections today, ripping off their shirts and attempting to charge Silvio Berlusconi as he voted. The trio had "Enough with Berlusconi" ("Basta Berlusconi") written across their backs, reports Sky News, and were quickly accosted by police in a scene that more closely resembled a free-for-all than democracy. Italian judges recently postponed Berlusconi's underage sex trial so that he could stand for election.

"Italian judges recently postponed Berlusconi's underage sex trial so that he could stand for election." Where's Pussy Riot when you need them? Oh, they threw them in JAIL for speaking up!

Berlusconi is a wealthy scumbag trailer-trash bastard. In America, the republicons would crown him king.
