On the take?

Yet another political “earthquake” in Israel?

Channel 10 reported Tuesday that police have evidence that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s family allegedly received $3 million in bribes from Austrian businessman Martin Schlaff, part of a complicated case involving illegal campaign contributions.

“The report showed a document it said was delivered by police to a court that confiscated material from the home of the Schlaff family in Israel, saying it had evidence of bribery. Police have been investigating the case, stemming from the 1999 election, for more than two years.”

Who knows how this may affect the forthcoming election, though this is interesting:

Sharon is far ahead in the polls, despite findings that large numbers of voters believe he and his family are corrupt.”
