Yes she did, AND WON despite 1)Having no experience as a legislator, and 2)Being exposed as a porn actress.
She was a complete disaster in the Italian Parliament (During the Iraq war her idea of diplomacy was to offer to sleep with Saddam in exchange for peace in the region). She was voted out in the next election, and now spends her time as a political activist. Her favorite causes? Same-sex marriage and legal prostitution.
I know Italy is not the USA, but it scares me to think that someone can get elected with no qualifications other than a pretty face and a smooth tongue. That would never happen here, would it?
Ahhh, so then my memory hasn’t failed me completely, yet
