Chinese lawmaker fired after online sex scandal


15:41, September 17, 2011

ZHENGZHOU, Sept. 17 (Xinhua) -- An official with a local legislature in central China has been fired after screen shots from a sex video of him were posted online last month, local authorities said Saturday.

Tian Hanwen has been removed from his post in the Standing Committee of People's Congress of Ruyang County in Henan Province and expelled from the Communist Party of China, the discipline inspection commission in the city of Luoyang, which administers Ruyang, said in a statement Saturday.

Last month, an anonymous woman posted several sex video images of her and Tian in bed on the popular website:

According to the woman's posting, Tian had asked her out for sex many times since 2006. He said he'd help her find a job but failed to keep his promise.

She said Tian shot the sex video, and said she was not the only woman involved with him over the years.

Saturday's statement also said that Tian has been involved in other illegal matters and local law authorities are processing his case.

Tian has been suspended since August 3.
