Berlusconi is one of the sleaziest politicians in Europe but he doesn’t care what people think about him. He loves soccer and transformed A.C. Milan into one of the continent’s most dominant teams. But it fell apart after his legal problems arose. He became embroiled in a corruption case and received a criminal conviction.
Then there was the notorious Rubygate and the Bunga Bunga parties. He allegedly propositioned minors for sexual acts at these exclusive social events. In the end, it became untenable for him to lead Milan despite his millions. The former Italian Primer Minister shamelessly reentered politics after his legal woes ended (via France 24).
