Chinese official forged all of her credentials and even ID, was promoted within the communist party.  Climbing the ladder Chinese style.

“SHIJIAZHUANG, April 11 (Xinhua) — Two high-ranking officials of Shijiazhuang city, capital of north China’s Hebei Province, had been given administrative penalties over involvement with a woman politician who forged identity documents to gain rapid promotions.

Zhang Zhenjiang, then deputy Party head of Shijiazhuang City and Li Jianhua, head of Shijiazhuang’s publicity department were given administrative warnings, according to a statement from Hebei’s discipline inspection commission Sunday.

On March 12, Wang Yali, a member of the Shijiazhuang municipal committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, was arrested for forging documents to obtain government jobs and claim inheritance that did not belong to her.

Wang allegedly faked all her personal information, including name, age, education and work experience, except her gender.

Internet postings ridiculed Wang’s resume, which showed that she was a pharmacist in an army hospital at the age of 12. Despite the obviously problematic forgery, Wang had been rapidly promoted from 1998 to 2007.
