Italian MPs on drugs

This story about Italian MPs being secretly drugs-tested (while having their foreheads 'mopped for sweat') doesn't really require much additional comment:
> Italy MPs 'caught in drugs sting' (BBC)
The TV show concerned, Le Iene, is a curious programme which combines irritating pranks, showgirl-presenters cavorting and political satire. It can be found on a channel belonging to Berlusconi - hence the showgirl element and hence also, perhaps, the selection of MPs 'exposed' by this sting.
