MK Oren Hazan touched and grinded up against female employees of the bar he owned in Tel Aviv from 2011-2012, Channel 10 reported Monday.

The report featured Hazan’s former employees, whose faces were blurred and voices distorted, saying he would grab them by the waist, intimidate them into hugging him and rub his genitals against their backsides as he passed by. They also said he would often get drunk, dance on the bar and lower his pants, showing his backside, and they were afraid to be near him when he was intoxicated.

Last week, Channel 2 news reported that, while managing a casino in Burgas, Bulgaria, Hazan would pimp out prostitutes and provide crystal meth to Israeli tourists.

Hazan denied the allegations and plans to sue Channel 2.
