Molla Files Complaint Against Mofaz Campaign Staff


Member of Knesset Shlomo Molla filed a complaint with Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, Monday, charging the campaign staff of Shaul Mofaz in Mevasseret Tzion, west of Jerusalem, with using the Knesset switchboard during the last two weeks to get Kadima members to vote for Mofaz in Tuesday's primary elections and offering them assistance in getting to the polls.

Molla, who supports, incumbent Tzipi Livni in the race for the chairmanship, said the Knesset should stop being used for the Mofaz campaign at once, explaining that it should not be used for any candidate. He called for an investigation of the matter, allowing for the possibility that the abuse had been made by a Knesset employee who was recruited to the Mofaz staff.
