With Tzippi Livni, what's good for the goose is not good for the gander

MK Elazar Stern has announced his leaving the Hatnua political party. He is looking into his options, including possibly joining a different party. His reasons are the way Tzippi Livni came to her arrangement with the Labor party, along with some other reasons.

Personally, I don't care much for Stern. For me at least it is not particularly sad to see him go. He was definitely disruptive to the system, and I like that, but I did not like him, his style or his goals.

What I find interesting about this is not his leaving the party, but something else he says in his letter to Livni. He decided to not take his portion of the government funding to the party with him to wherever he goes next, despite having consulted with legal experts and being told explicitly unanimously that legally and morally he is well within his rights to take the money. Stern says that every single person he consulted with had no problem with his taking the money, except for one. That person was Tzippi Livni, who wanted him to leave his money in her hands.

That I find interesting. Tzippi Livni who has jumped from political party to political party and has made sure to take her portion of the funding along with her wherever she went, as was her right, objected when someone else wanted to do the same to her, as per his rights.

With Tzippi Livni, what's good for the goose is not good for the gander.

  1. Add that to the reasons not to like her or want her to be in power.

  2. She is a walking mussar sefer - just do the opposite of everything she does.

  3. livni actually did more than that. when she formed her party, she convinced several kadima members to sign on and bring their funding. she then placed them in very unrealistic spots. they foolishly believed her promise to put them in good spots. meir shitreet had the brains to get the promise in writing.
