Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was questioned in the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem on Friday morning on the bribery allegations involving New York financier Morris Talansky.
The prime minister was interrogated for around an hour in what was the second round of questioning he has faced in connection with the investigation.
Copies of e-mails taken from the computer of Shula Zaken, Olmert's former bureau chief and long-time secretary, show how Zaken documented regular cash transfers from Talansky, whom she referred to as the "the laundry man."
There’s the former Orthodox rabbi, Morris Talansky, become bag man for a prime minister. The former rabbi once recruited muscle to intimidate a disgruntled business partner at a Manhattan topless bar called, aptly enough, Scores.
The billionaire diet king, S. Daniel Abraham, is accused of stuffing cash into cases of Slim Fast and having them delivered by Olmert’s New York limo driver to Olmert’s hotel during his visits to the Big Apple. Talansky admits to having personally paid Olmert’s $5,000 hotel bill.
