Controversial voter

Eighteen-year-old Noemi Letizia (right), followed by her mother Anna Palumbo, is escorted by police as she arrives to vote at a polling station in Naples, Italy on Sunday. Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi's Freedom People's Party held a two-digit lead over his main center-left rival in the most recent polling despite a deep recession and a scandal over allegations he reportedly had an inappropriate relationship with an 18-year-old model, Noemi. Europe leaned to the right Sunday as tens of millions of people voted in European Parliament elections, with conservative parties leading or favored in many countries amid a global economic crisis.
