The Knesset released a list of its members' expenses for "contact with voters" on Thursday, revealing that UAL-Ta'al leader Ibrahim Sarsour spent the most.

Sarsour spent NIS 86,565, a third of which went towards printing and photocopying.

MK Jamal Zahlaka of Balad came in second, spending over NIS 83,140, and National Union MK Uri Ariel was third with nearly NIS 83,046 in expenses.

Three MKs, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Minister-without-Portfolio Bennie Begin did not spend any money on their connection with voters.
