Livni: Those who commit criminal acts should pay with their office

In a less-than subtle attack on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said that all public servants who criminal acts should pay with their office. It is important "to say no to temptations which are offered clandestinely, to say no when that becomes a norm which the society cannot accept," the foreign minister said during a conference on democracy at the president's residence in Jerusalem. "From the criminal aspect, a person who breaks the law pays with his freedom; from the normative aspect, this man must pay with his office," she said.
