Likud on comptroller report: Peres was worse

Intelligence Services Minister Yuval Steinitz, the politician closest to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, responded to State Comptroller Yosef Shapira’s report on the use of state funds released Tuesday by pointing out that Shimon Peres spent much more as president than Netanyahu did as prime minister.

He said that in 2012, Peres’s household expenditures were 20 times as much as Netanyahu’s.

"The report is exaggerated," Steinitz said. "Such a fuss should not be made out of it."
