Kadima Elections C'tee: Complaint Against Mofaz Staff

Chairman Edna Beckenstein of the Kadima party elections committee called, Tuesday, for the filing of a criminal complaint and an immediate investigation of the campaign staff of Shaul Mofaz, who is challenging chairwoman Tzipi Livni for leadership of the party in Tuesday's primary election. Judge Beckenstein's call followed an early morning SMS message sent to Kadima members, telling them to vote on Wednesday.

Beckenstein said, "On the surface, this is an act designed to tilt the election through fraud."
