A Dominican woman, 25-year old Maria Esther Garcia Polanco involved in the sex scandal surrounding Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi told La Repubblica newspaper on Saturday that she did have sex with the 74-year old Prime Minister and did so just to thank him for paying her five-year old daughter's medical bills. She denies doing this for money. She says he also helped her find work as a television showgirl on a program called "The Hot Chick and the Dork". She says she thanked him with sex.
Maria Esther Garcia Polanco is one of 14 women, the so-called "bunga bunga girls", who were reportedly kept in rent-free accommodation by Berlusconi in an apartment complex, Villa San Martino, on the outskirts of Milan in exchange for striptease and sex services.
