The director of a ‘Cultural Bureau’ in Zhaoqing City, Guangdong, has been suspended after these photos circulated online, allegedly depicting the man gambling, embezzling state funds, and paying his mistress a monthly retainer.
The charges against Du Weijun are extensive: the Shanghai Daily claims that Du paid his mistress about 20,000 yuan per month to cover her living expenses, that he lost nearly 2 million yuan of state funds in high-stakes mahjong gambling, and that the mistress only came forward after Du assaulted her in a nightclub. This is far from the first time that an official’s seedy sex life has made the news, but it may be the first in which the evidence looks so … questionable.
There has been a bit of chatter online about whether or not the leaked photos have been Photoshop’d and this writer may have to side with the skeptics. There is something a bit off about Du’s head in a number of these photos (I swear I’m not just posting them so we have more naked women on this site). Police are still investigating the case, but as this ‘shopper can attest, something is not quite right; if a video is released, however, then we’ll all just shut up about it.
