A police investigation into claims that Israel’s transportation minister sexually harassed a young staffer in his office prompted more women to come forward claiming they were the target of similar advances by the minister. The State Attorney’s Office is investigating another claim of sexual harassment involving Yitzhak Mordechai, who took a leave of absence while the police probe continues. According to reports, the second complaint involves an incident that occurred several years ago. Israeli media are reporting that several women have made similar accusations against Mordechai.
