Another of Ehud Olmert's shady dealings has been discovered
Yitzchak (pictured) reports today, on his Hebrew website NFC, that Olmert sold his Jerusalem apartment in 2004 for the relatively high price of $2.7 million, and is being allowed to continue renting it until the year 2010. The buyer: a well-known election campaign contributor.I must say, this is quite facinating indeed. While the fuller details are currently available in the Hebrew version, the buyer is Daniel Abrams, who may have also contributed some campaign funds to Olmert illegally as well. Tsk tsk tsk.
State Comptroller Hon. Micha Lindenstrauss has begun investigating the sale, which was mediated by a company registered in the Virgin Islands. The Comptroller has asked to see a copy of the sale contract and other documents. Yitzchak reports that Olmert is suspected of receiving forbidden financial benefits.
