Kadima leader Tzipi Livni enabled financial misconduct in the party that has resulted in investigations by police and State Comptroller Micha Lindenstraus, her party rivals Shaul Mofaz and Avi Dichter charged Thursday night in a stormy meeting of the Kadima faction.
Livni convened the faction to discuss Lindenstraus's November 3 decision to fine Kadima NIS 570,000 for failing to present a complete financial report or disclose full information about its income and expenditure.
Lindenstraus criticized the party for overpaying suppliers, giving out illegal bonuses, and failing to insist on the repayment of loans. He also singled out Livni for hosting a NIS 57,000 private dinner for 60 guests at her Tel Aviv home at a cost of NIS 950 per plate.
