Italy's rakish prime minister / media mogul Silvio Berlusconi has said he wants to see some "fresh faces" in the upcoming 2009 European parliamentary elections, and it appears his wish will be granted. One candidate is 28-year-old Elena Basescu (above), sexy daughter of Traian Basescu, the president of Romania. Dubbed the "Romanian Paris Hilton," she's done some modeling, is quite the party girl and has had many beaus, Spiegel Online reports. In response to critics who say she doesn't have the intellectual firepower needed to represent her country in the European Parliament, her father counters that Elena is "much cleverer than people think." Nice Maserati, too.
