Lieberman wrongfully aided Haredis in avoiding military draft

Some new and eyebrow-raising information came to light that the politician now supposedly concerned about the Haredi draft for the army actually did more to help them avoid it than recruit them:
Avigdor Liberman, who single-handedly led the country to the voting booths three times within a year over his vehement opposition to draft exemptions for the ultra-Orthodox, was the subject of an exposé published Monday that found he had issued hundreds of exemptions to yeshiva students while serving as defense minister.

The sons of politicians, rabbis and other leading ultra-Orthodox figures received exemptions and leniencies from Liberman’s office, the Haaretz daily reported in a damning investigation citing dozens of sources. [...]

The person who reportedly handled the requests for exemptions was Liberman’s close adviser, Avi Abuhatzeira.

“Knesset members themselves, or their aides in office, connected with Abuhatzeira via direct conversation, message, or email, and he immediately devoted himself to the issue,” said one source close to the matter. “This was routine, no one hid it. When Liberman was Defense Minister the haredim had ‘a sister in the palace.’ Abuhatzeira was like a member of the haredi parties.” [...]

The report also said hundreds of deserters from the extremist Jerusalem Faction, which has organized hundreds of violent demonstrations against army service, were granted outright exemptions under Liberman.

According to sources, many of the exemption requests were handled directly by Liberman.

Some would receive medical exemptions after presenting falsified medical documents, the report said. [...]

An IDF spokesperson said it would investigate the matter.

“Meetings between IDF commanders and the political echelon and its advisers are handled by regulated policies in the IDF and in accordance with permissions. Meetings of this type with advisers from the political echelon, which were not approved – are not acceptable, and if they occurred without approval, that is a serious problem. The IDF will seriously investigate this article’s claims, and the results will be shown to the Chief of Staff. Lessons will be learned, and as much as is necessary, significant steps will be taken against those involved.”
It's becoming clear at this point Lieberman's just a troublemaker for nothing, and one more reason why nobody in the right frame of mind should vote for him. This is truly awful.
