Hazan scandal overshadows Likud central committee debate

When MK Oren Hazan sauntered into Wednesday night’s Likud central committee meeting with a cheshire cat grin, it was immediately clear that serious debate on how the party should choose its candidates was over.

Earlier this week, a Channel 2 investigative report alleged that, while working in a casino in Burgas, Bulgaria, Hazan ordered prostitutes for Israeli tourists and bought them crystal meth, using it himself, as well. The MK denied the report, but changed his mind on Wednesday about previous offers to take a polygraph test, writing on Facebook: "I’m not lying about my past and I will not take a polygraph test every time someone tries to sully my good name."

The press mobbed Hazan, the clicking of cameras filling the air as he arrived at the central committee meeting later that day.
