Raphael Warnock (GA) used his campaign cash to fund his legal expenses for a lawsuit relating to his time as a church minister, not as a Senate candidate, ultimately raising questions concerning the legality of spending campaign funds for personal use, a Politico report revealed . Politico’s Natalie Allison wrote that Warnock used campaign cash to cover the legal expenses for a lawsuit relating to his time as a church minister in 2005. The case was filed in 2019 by an Atlanta resident, Melvin Robertson, with allegations dating back to 2005. However, it was dismissed by a Georgia federal court judge before any of the defendants were served. But Politico reported that Robertson filed a similar lawsuit in April 2021 against the senator and the church where he was a pastor, Ebenezer Baptist Church, along with other public figures.

JERUSALEM (AP) — A key witness in the corruption trial of former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has testified that her billionaire boss ordered her to deliver gifts of champagne, cigars, and expensive jewelry to the then-Israeli premier in a scandal at the center of the country's political crisis.
