MK Miki Rosenthal (Labor) lied about Sara Netanyahu mistreating workers
in the Prime Minister's Residence, MK Gila Gamliel (Likud Beytenu) wrote in a
complaint to the Knesset Ethics Committee Wednesday night.
Earlier this week, Rosenthal said in a meeting of the Knesset Caucus for
Equality in Employment that recently, a woman was hired to cook for the
Netanyahu family, and the prime minister's wife told her that she can only get
the job if she promises not to get married in the next three years.
Rosenthal said that Sara Netanyahu's comment was illegal, and called for
Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein to investigate the incident.
The Prime Minister's Office denied the story, accusing Rosenthal of
"joining the national sport, baseless slandering of Mrs. Netanyahu in
order to grab a headline."
Gamliel's complaint to the Ethics Committee quoted Rosenthal and the PMO
response, saying the Labor MK "cynically used his status and immunity,
turning the public discourse into an arena for anarchic mudslinging."
