      Slomiansky: Bennett Not Behind Vote-Buying Story

      Member of Knesset Nissan Slomiansky (Habayit Hayehudi) said, Tuesday morning, that Party Chairman Naftali Bennett was not behind the story that Slomiansky payed for votes during the party's most recent primary elections. Interviewed by Israel Defense Forces Radio, Slomiansky said the story carries the obvious "fingerprints of those who would be happy if my spot on the list was available."

      In a conversation with Arutz Sheva, Monday evening, a close associate of Slomiansky called the charges a recycling of old claims, revived to prevent Slomiansky from becoming a minister if Habayit Hayehudi becomes part of the coalition.
