Ne­tanyahu brings his dirty laun­dry to the White House

The Timaru Herald - - World -

The cor­rup­tion charges faced by Benjamin Ne­tanyahu were ex­pected to throw un­wel­come light on his metaphor­i­cal dirty laun­dry, but no­body ex­pected them to do so lit­er­ally. Court records and of­fi­cial sources in Wash­ing­ton have re­vealed ac­cu­sa­tions against the Is­raeli prime min­is­ter of smug­gling large quan­ti­ties of wash­ing to the Amer­i­can cap­i­tal for years, ap­par­ently to have it cleaned at no cost. Blair House, the Wash­ing­ton house where world lead­ers are hosted, pro­vides a laun­dry and dry clean­ing ser­vice. Most guests use it to have clean shirts for sum­mits and ne­go­ti­a­tions. Ne­tanyahu and his wife, Sara, how­ever, ap­par­ently take it fur­ther. ‘‘The Ne­tanyahus are the only ones who bring ac­tual suit­cases of dirty laun­dry for us to clean,’’ an of­fi­cial said.
