Prostitute steals police sergeants' gun, badge, handcuffs

Prime Minister Netanyahu is a big spender?

   Apparently Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu can't control his personal spending habits. In an audit it was revealed that the PM spends over $2000 a month just cleaning his second home, which is more than the average Israeli earns in a month.

   It also revealed that since he took over the job, that the food and entertainment amount has more than doubled, totaling $130,000 in 2013. Looks like with his re-election looming, his trip to visit John Boehner is the least of his problems.
