Bayit Yehudi Fined Over Netanyahu-Bennett Ad

Judge Elyakim Rubinstein, who chairs the Central Elections Committee, on Sunday imposed a 72,000 shekel fine on the Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home), over what he said was its failure to remove an ad that shows Likud leader Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu side-by-side with Jewish Home head Naftali Bennett.

Last week the Likud filed a complaint with the Elections Committee, saying that the ad’s creators were attempting to fool Likud supporters “by sending the misleading, false message that the Prime Minister is turning to citizens who lean toward voting for Likud Beytenu and saying, ‘Don’t vote for me, but for my partner, vote for Naftali Bennett.’”
