Ehud Olmert Indicted

Oy vey: Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was indicted on corruption charges Sunday—the first time a current or past Israeli prime minister has been indicted. Olmert stepped down earlier this year and is accused of illegally accepting funds from an American backer, double-billing trips abroad, and concealing funds from a government watchdog. Olmert allegedly committed these crimes while serving as mayor of Jerusalem and as a cabinet minister, before he was elected prime minister in 2006.
