There's a limit to sex scandals even in "old Europe".
A mature society like France can look the other way while the "family values" candidate for President dumps his wife after the election so he can hook up with the supermodel.
And considering his previous exploits they'll tolerate a hell of a lot from Berlusconi in Italy.
But apparently, running around naked, paying off mistresses, and inviting the heads of other countries to display their EXCITEMENT (NSFW) over the whole orgy concept has the nation remembering how embarassing that whole "I, Claudius" miniseries was.
And now it's time to toss Silvio up on the proverbial upside down display in Milan.
