MK Hazan, demoted over sex, drugs and gambling allegations, threatens Edelstein

MK Oren Hazan (Likud) threatened to dig up and disseminate dirt about Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein Tuesday, after the latter suspended the former from serving as deputy Knesset speaker until further notice, following a report that he managed a casino in Burgas, Bulgaria, pimping prostitutes and providing crystal meth to Israeli tourists.

Edelstein discussed the situation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, then met with Hazan, telling the MK that if he does not suspend himself from the deputy Knesset speaker position, Edelstein will take action. The Speaker also advised Hazan to "take five polygraph tests."
