Baseless Report on Satmar Rebbe FBI Investigation

News12 Report - Fraud allegations in the Ultra-Orthodox community of Kiryas Joel are continuing one day after IRS agents were seen at two properties in the area.

According to Bhadrey Haradim and YJ News, the FBI is allegedly investigating Kiryas Joel's Grand Rabbi, Aaron Teitelbaum, over allegations of voter fraud. News 12 was told an appointment was needed to speak to Teitelbaum, but a woman claiming to be his wife says she doesn't know anything about an investigation.

The accusation of an investigation is based on an Israeli blog post from March 16th, which was Purim, a day akin to a Jewish April Fools
