Foreign Funding Bankrolls Anti-Netanyahu Campaign – Flies in 5-Man Obama
Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 26 January 2015
Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition
today that the foreign funded organization, “One Voice”, is bankrolling the
V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu’s national camp in the March
2015 Knesset Elections.
One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team
of five American campaign experts (including Jeremy Bird, the Obama
campaign's national field director) who will run the campaign out of offices
taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building.
V-2015 is careful not to support a specific party - rather “just not Bibi”.
As such, the foreign funds pouring into the campaign are not subject to
Israel’s campaign finance laws.
