Yet another Chinese official, and yet another sex scandal. And this time, it’s in the form of a written note that will melt your heart.
Mr Shan Zengde, relatively hunky in comparison to Chongqing fellow sex scandler Lei Zhengfu, an official from the Agriculture Department in Shandong province, made a promise to his mistress of 6 years that he would divorce his wife.
In a letter hand-written a few days ago, he said that by the 20th December things will have finished with his wife. Not only that, a co-worker witnessed the signing. After all, we wouldn’t want there to be any confusion.
Shandong authorities are reportedly investigating the case after news about it broke on Weibo and quickly went viral.
