Lieberman reneges, refuses to support law for cameras at polling stations

Avigdor Lieberman's once again, in a startling display of betraying the right, refused to back a bill for posting cameras at polling stations during elections to prevent the voter fraud he supposedly worried about earlier:
Yisrael Beytenu Chairman MK Avigdor Liberman has announced that his party will not support the Camera Law as it is presented written, demanding that only the Elections Committee be authorized to use cameras in voting places. The present bill permits all election observers to use cameras at voting areas. [...]

Last month, Liberman expressed support for the law, which allows cameras to be placed in voting stations, saying: "Today there's 'Big Brother' on every street corner, so I see no reason why not."
In other words, he was for it before he was against it. The election committee could always handle what he supposedly wants, so it's clear he doesn't really want it at all. And now, the bill so far has indeed failed to pass in a Knesset committee:
A controversial bill that would allow party operatives to bring cameras into polling stations during next week’s elections failed to gain a majority in the Knesset Regulatory committee Monday, leaving the Likud-proposed legislation without an immediate path to become law before the September 17 vote.

In the committee vote on a motion to shorten the normal legislative process so that the bill would not have to wait the usual 45 days before a Knesset vote, MKs were tied 12-12, with Yisrael Beytenu lawmakers voting against it, stymieing the proposal and preventing it from facing a scheduled first reading in the plenum later in the day.

The so-called Security Cameras Law would have allowed representatives of Likud and other parties to bring cameras into polling stations, despite staunch opposition from the attorney general, the Central Elections Committee, and the Knesset’s legal adviser.

Speaking to reporters at the Knesset ahead of a faction meeting, Yisrael Beytenu chair Avigdor Liberman called the legislation being pushed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu an effort to steal the September 17 vote.
He's virtue-signaling for the left, and it contradicts whatever stance he takes on ensuring their won't be voter fraud. It's clear at this point he's only opposing the bill because Netanyahu's the one backing it. Otherwise, he would've put aside his supposed misgivings with Netanyahu and put state and security first.

The prime minister's already voiced his disappointment:
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu blasted his former defense minister, Avidgor Liberman, on Monday, over Liberman’s opposition to a Likud-backed bill which would permit election observers to use cameras in voting areas to combat voter fraud.

In a video message Monday afternoon, Netanyahu accused Liberman of joining with Arab lawmakers to block the passage of the “Camera Law”.

“There is absolutely no reason for anyone who wants to protect the integrity of our elections to oppose the Camera Law, which will prevent election fraud,”
said Netanyahu.

“Nevertheless, I’m not all that surprised that Lapid and Gantz joined with Ahmed Tibi and Ayman Odeh to bury the Camera Law, because they are working together towards a left-wing government which will include Ahmed Tibi and Ayman Odeh as ministers.”
It could be that's the nasty trick they're hoping to pull. And then Lieberman has the gall to accuse his former boss of working with Odeh? This is just simply atrocious, and makes clear Lieberman's not worth anyone's time in voting for, has nothing new or convincing to offer, and is therefore not suited to serve as a politician, nor does he deserve to.
