State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss on Monday called Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's recent accusations toward him "hurtful and offensive." Speaking during a deliberation at the State Control Committee, Lindenstrauss added that he was disurbed by this "collection of lies." Olmert had called Lindenstrauss a "publicity hound" and accused him of "leaking excerpts from drafts of the reports drawn up in his office, and [showing a] constant disregard for the prime minister." Olmert was also invited to attend the deliberation, but declined to show up.
