Alleged Berlusconi pimp convicted for Puglia healthcare scam

Bari, December 24 - A Puglia businessman accused of recruiting escorts for ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's sex parties was on Monday convicted of bribing officials in the southern Italian region for healthcare contracts. Gianpaolo Tarantini, whom Berlusconi is also accused of paying to hush up the alleged procurement, received a jail term of four years and three months. Also convicted was the former deputy regional governor of Puglia, Sandro Frisullo, who got two years and eight months. Frisullo is a former member of the centre-left Democratic Party, which has a 15-point lead over Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party going into the February 25-25 general election.
