“Every great movement begins with one man, and I guess that’s me.” Do you know who said that? Here’s a hint: he’s a recent newsmaker. If you guessed Colonel Mummar Gaddafi, the leader of Libya, then you would be wrong.
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is once again in hot water. Recently, he has been accused of abusing his powers and paying Moroccan nightclub dancer Karima El Mahroug — also known by the stage name Ruby Rubacuori — for sex when she was under eighteen. The charges brought against him could land Berlusconi up to 15 years in prison if he is convicted.
Prosecutors allege that Berlusconi started to pay Mahroug for sex when she was seventeen. Although prostitution is legal in Italy, it is illegal if the prostitute is under the age of eighteen. In Italy, paying for sex with a minor is punished by a range of six months’ to three years’ imprisonment.
I understand that the Hofstra Chronicle is a newspaper, thus the ‘big scoop’ is of the utmost importance. But I think that there is a limit to what should be revealed to the public. I speak at this time of the revealing of the King d’Hofstra’s true identity.
The Hofstra Chronicle has single-handedly destroyed the legacy of the King d’Hofstra. When it was revealed that the King was to be unmasked, I sat there in disbelief, looking at my computer screen.
