Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett admitted to hiring private investigators leading to the police probe of MK Nissan Slomiansky for allegedly buying votes.

In a Facebook status written on Tuesday, Bennett said he wanted to update his supporters on the matter.

"Over six months ago, the Bayit Yehudi membership drive began…During the membership drive we heard suspicions about the purity of the process and activity by vote contractors enlisting large numbers of illegal votes," Bennett wrote. "After the information reached me, I ordered a thorough investigation of the vote contractors, which concentrated only on the purity of the membership drive. As a result of the investigation, thousands of illegal membership forms were disqualified." The findings of the probe were brought to the police.
