It must be time to call the Guinness people

I think Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is set to undergo an international record of dubious distinction. Arutz Sheva:
(IsraelNN.com) Journalist Yoav Yitzchak, who has doggedly pursued the criminal suspicions against Prime Minister Ehud Olmert for years, has now unleashed another one. Yitzchak claims Olmert received an unauthorized $300,000 when he was Trade Minister.

The investigative journalist says the police are now focusing their criminal investigation of the Prime Minister on new suspicions that Olmert received 300,000 dollars during the years 2002-2005, when he served as Minister of Industry and Trade under Ariel Sharon. These monies have nothing to do with Morris Talansky, newly famous for having given envelopes of cash to Olmert.

I stopped keeping count after #4 but I think this makes either #6 or #7 ongoing investigation into Olmert's conduct. It has to be a record for a world leader.
