Did Dov Hikind Break the Law?

Looks like he may have

“The Internal Revenue Service prohibits the use of charity money for partisan political purposes including abroad and bars donors from taking deductions on contributions made to such causes. Hikind’s use of a religious charity to channel funds connected to his ad were first noted on The Politicker, a blog published by The New York Observer, and followed up on YudelLine, a Web site authored by Larry Yudelson, a former reporter for the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

The ad in question ran last month in a number of high-profile Jewish papers, including The Jewish Week, The Forward and The Jewish Press. Headlined in large type at the top of the ad with a picture of Olmert was the message: PRIME MINISTER OLMERT, PLEASE RESIGN!”
