The Associated Press
Paolo Berlusconi, who also runs the family newspaper, Il Giornale, made the comment Sunday at a campaign rally in Milan. In a much-viewed video clip, he tells supporters as he heads to Milan's stadium: `'Now, let's go see the family's little black boy, the hot head," using a pejorative term for black people.
Ex-premier Berlusconi on Monday denied his recent purchase of Balotelli from Manchester City was designed to boost popularity with voters in national elections later this month.
