I just want to tell everyone that as of today no fewer than eight women have come forward to the police regarding alleged sexual harrassment by the current President of the state of Israel, Moshe Katsav.
His side is claiming this is some vast organized conspiracy and when the “truth” comes out, he shall be cleared. His wife has been standing by her man as well.
Just as police were nearing the end of the evidence-gathering stage of the sex crimes investigation of President Moshe Katsav, another woman came forward Wednesday with new allegations against the president.
On the same day that police sources said they believed there was enough evidence to press charges against the president that would include two counts of rape and two counts of lesser sexual crimes, a woman who served under Katsav during his tenure as Tourism minister in the Netanyahu government claimed Katsav had harassed her and attempted to persuade her to have sexual relations with him.
Katsav told the woman, she said, that he dreamt about her at night while lying in bed with his wife, and encouraged her to wear button-down shirts and skirts at work for “easier accessibility.”
Katsav’s attorney Zion Amir responded to the new allegations by saying that “there are no bounds to humiliation, and no bounds to chutzpa,” characterizing the woman as a disgruntled former employee.
Katsav has responded in public to the accusation of the second Aleph in the past, saying that she had asked to work for him after the alleged rape and had been rejected.
“I don’t understand how women who claim that I raped them ask to work for me,” he reportedly told the investigators.
Please, please, please let him be innocent. I just cannot imagine anybody that vile sitting in this hallowed office that is symbolic of the leadership of the state of Israel all these years.
By the way, this is the same man who refused to call Conservative and Reform rabbis “rabbi.”
