Olmert implicated in cronyism

Oh yes, do cover your face in shame, Olmert, because your shady activities are now fast catching up with you!
Israel’s State Comptroller has accused Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of cronyism – saying he was responsible for improper appointments as Minister of Industry and Trade during the Sharon regime.

State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss found that Olmert arranged jobs in the ministry for members of the Likud Central Committee – in effect buying their loyalty.

“We are talking here about people who came into the office once a month, got their money, and supported whoever they were supposed to support,” investigative journalist Micky Rosenthal told Army Radio Monday, explaining the significance of the report. “We are not talking about a job even – these are not people who worked – this is simply public money being handed over to these people as bribes.”

The State Comptroller’s Report on the Israel Small and Medium Enterprise Authority (ISMEA) levels harsh criticism on both Olmert, and Director-General of the Prime Minister’s Office Raanan Dinur – who served in the same position under Olmert when he headed the Ministry of Industry and Trade under Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

Be honest now, Olmert, and resign!
