Gamliel to Ethics C'tee: Rosenthal slandered Sara Netanyahu

MK Miki Rosenthal (Labor) lied about Sara Netanyahu mistreating workersin the Prime Minister's Residence, MK Gila Gamliel (Likud Beytenu) wrote in acomplaint to the Knesset Ethics Committee Wednesday night.

Earlier this week, Rosenthal said in a meeting of the Knesset Caucus forEquality in Employment that recently, a woman was hired to cook for theNetanyahu family, and the prime minister's wife told her that she can only getthe job if she promises not to get married in the next three years.

Rosenthal said that Sara Netanyahu's comment was illegal, and called forAttorney-General Yehuda Weinstein to investigate the incident.

The Prime Minister's Office denied the story, accusing Rosenthal of"joining the national sport, baseless slandering of Mrs. Netanyahu inorder to grab a headline."

Gamliel's complaint to the Ethics Committee quoted Rosenthal and the PMOresponse, saying the Labor MK "cynically used his status and immunity,turning the public discourse into an arena for anarchic mudslinging."
