Disabled MK is mocked
LIKUD MK Oren Hazan has come under fire for mocking an opposition politician’s physical disability.
During a vote on the universal draft law on Tuesday, Mr Hazan shouted at wheelchair-bound Yesh Atid MK Karin Elharar: “Need Issawi to help you?”
Ms Elharar suffers from muscular dystrophy. Last week, Mr Hazan accused her of illegal double-voting after she asked Meretz MK Issawi Frej to help her cast her vote.
Earlier this year, Mr Hazan was accused of sexual assault, soliciting prostitutes and using crystal meth while he managed a European casino.
Yesh Atid leader, Yair Lapid, called on Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein to eject Mr Hazan from the plenum.
