Police to probe Kadima membership drive

The Israel Police's National Fraud Unit will examine allegations of improprieties in the Kadima Party's membership drive, the head of the unit, Lt.-Cmdr. Shlomi Ayalon, revealed in a letter to the Movement for Quality Government on Monday. The movement asked the police to look into the drive following a report on Channel 10 Friday night in which many Kadima members complained that they were unaware that people had registered them to the party. Kadima's membership drive, which is expected to end at the end of July could determine who will be elected the party's chairman and candidate for prime minister.
