China Corruption: Hero Today Gone Tomorrow

corruptionA Chinese Communist party member hailed last week as a corruption whistleblowing hero by none less than the People's Daily apparently now has been sent to the "sin-bin" and told to do a little bit of "self examination"

Huang Jingao, a party secretary from southern China's Lianjiang County, wrote an "Open Letter" exposing official corruption in his home town which received lavish praise in a full page article in the People's Daily and for which he was widely lauded, apparently, throughout China as to his brave stance.

Hostile western forces no less!
