Not really, I believe you are talking about some other country.

I remember reading in Newsweek or US News & World Report about some bigwig who was under current investigation for soliciting phone sex for votes.

He actually received 50,2 % of the votes, but what do you mean by that?
1. It is a fake, can't you see?
2. This shouldn't have been posted on this thread though. See, the video is not real, while the pictures of the leaders of the left is true and accurate. Now who cuts the poor figure?

But who did the counting on his behalf? I am willing to wager a substantial amount that the left and the right have deviant numbers. But nobody will ever know who's right! All I can say is that Berlusconi worked on my nerves. I have no specific reason or cause, but everytime I saw his face on the tele I had this gut feeling.

Ultimate, only official and recognized State organism to check, count and officialy declare ballot results is the Corte di Cassazione, equivalent of US Supreme Court, Italy's highest judicial court. We have no deviant numbers on election results.
As for your reactions at the sight of Berlusconi, you said it yourself: "No specific reason". That's the reason behind most of his opposers' take on the issue .
