This is a pretty funny post. A Chinese auditor was caught ‘violating party discipline’ by spending ‘lavishly on hospitality’- wtf? So it is illegal for this guy to take some of his cronies to a ktv to buy some cheap hookers and its illegal? Yet the rampant stealing of land from the citizens, corruption and malfeasance are tolerated?

BEIJING – A top auditor in the city of Haimen, East China’s Jiangsu province, was discovered to have violated Party discipline by spending lavishly on hospitality, among other infractions.

Shi Ping, director of Haimen Audit Bureau, on Saturday received an administrative demotion and a severe reprimand from the Communist Party of China for violating discipline after he was exposed in an online post last month.

The post, published by “hacksuper18” at the end of December on Tianya.cn, one of China’s most popular Internet forums, revealed that the bureau hosted a luxury tour for its counterparts from Mianzhu, Sichuan province.

The junket is estimated to have cost nearly 100,000 yuan ($15,000), according to some netizens.

The detailed itinerary of the tour showed that only four hours were used by officials to discuss business, while the remainder of the two-day trip was spent on pleasure, including karaoke sessions at high-end clubs and visits to museums.”
