More local mud?

Things may have just turned a wee bit more spicy in the local mayoral elections (see this previous post) according to the latest news from Ynet:

A senior Raanana municipality official was arrested on suspicion of receiving bribes from contractors and vendors in order to promote contracts and for using funds from an NGO that he runs for personal needs.

The Lahav 433 unit searched his home and office on Monday morning; he will be remanded in Rishon Lezion Magistrates Court later in the day.
