When Olmert met Talansky



Olmert, left, and Talansky

Morris Talansky is a victim.

At least, that is what the Long Island macher who brought down Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert wants you to believe; that’s the reality Talansky occupies in a lengthy feature in the new issue of New York magazine.

Olmert, as you may remember, just resigned from office because he’s been indicted for accepting bribes and other political indiscretions. (Here are past posts about his downfall and Talansky’s role.)

Talansky told New York’s Scott Fishman that Olmert’s demise came from an inability to avoid trouble:

“I feel the way I feel about the whole thing, very bad. You know, come on. I don’t know how to describe the whole thing….He’s a guy who gets himself into messes. That’s what I don’t understand about him. Maybe it’s a death wish.”

As for the media, Talansky wished God’s wrath be wrought upon them:

“I hope God makes them pay for what they did to me.”
