We shouldn't forget that the sale of Olmert's prior residence was extremely fishy. The Comptroller found that the price was not outrageously high compared to similar sales, but ignored the fact that this was a sale-leaseback (Olmert leased back the premises), and that the sale was for an amount at the high end of the scale, which the lease was for an amount at the low end of the scale. The Comptroller also ignored the fact that the other party in the deal was S. Daniel Abraham, a major donor to politicians (in the US, he was the largest donor to the Democratic Party in the year 2000), who already owns plenty of property in Jerusalem. Anyone who thinks that this was anything other than an indirect donation is deluding himself.
