Likud MK Danny Danon has filed a complaint to the Knesset Ethics Committee against opposition leader Tzipi Livni for accepting an invitation from Madonna to sit in a special section at the singer's recent concert in Tel Aviv. Livni was invited by Madonna to sit in a section next to her family as a special guest when the two had dinner on the eve of the first show last week. According to Danon, Livni paid 490 shekels, the price for a regular spot, and therefore, the acceptance of Madonna's invitation violated the prohibition against MKs receiving gifts "The fact that she received a present violates ethics laws," Danon told Israel Radio on Thursday. "I expect a swift response from the Knesset Ethics Committee."
