Raiders of the Lost Financial Recordsby michael • May 13 2008
Maybe Olmert hid the money under the lion
Most Jerusalemites spent last week being clobbered by plastic hammers and cholesterol in honor of Independence Day, but one city resident - Prime Minister Olmert - spent it being clobbered by justice. Olmert is, once again, accused of all manner of financial wrongdoing, centering this time around an American businessman who sent the Prime Minister an awful lot of off-the-record money during Olmert's tenure as the mayor of this fair city. And yesterday, in a development sure to spark spasms of schadenfreude among the oft-bamboozled residents of Jerusalem, the Municipality was raided by the police, who were searching for documents related to Olmert's manifold financial improprieties.
What the article doesn't tell you, of course, is that the coppers tried to raid the Municipality on Sunday, but after taking a number and waiting in line for several hours, they were forced to postpone the raid when all the Municipality workers punched out at 3:15.
