Sex, lies, videotapes…when the three things are interwoven together with Chinese bureaucratic life, it is always fun to watch.

In the past two days, a number of pictures that show a man and a woman having sex in a hotel room have been viral on Chinese social media. The informant says these are the screen grabs of a sex video of Lei Zhengfu, the party boss of Chongqing’s Beibei District, having sex with his 18-year-old mistress he had been keeping for a long time. In response, Chongqing’s Discipline Inspection Commission said they have noticed the exposé, and their initial investigation reveals that the video was not fake or manipulated.

Chinese netizens, too disgusted with the official, nicknamed him ‘Edison Lei’ after Edison Chen, a Hong Kong celebrity whose public image was tainted by hundreds of explicit sex photos with multiple actresses leaked online in 2008.

Ji Xuguang, a investigative journalist who reported the six sex slaves kept in dungeon by a civil servant last year, announced on Sina Weibo that he has much more evidence, including the original sex tape, against the official. Because “the original video was too explicit”, it had to be edited before its screen captures were posted on Weibo. lei zhengfu Lei Zhengfu, the party secretary of Beibei District, Chongqing, is suspected to be the man in the sex tape.

According to Ji, the sex video and a tip-off was first sent from an informant to (ren min jian du wang, meaning ‘the website of the people’s supervision’), an unofficial watchdog. Zhu Ruifeng, a reporter from, briefly interviewed Lei Zhengfu, the official in the sex tape, on November 7. Lei said to Zhu, “These are all fake. But I just will not take any action against you guys.” However, Zhu was approached by Lei and his cousin several times since then, who invited Zhu to be a guest and requested him to hand over the video. Now Zhu has been out of touch.

Ji also disclosed that Lei had even mobilized his resources in Beijing to try to suppress the story. Besides, Lei said to Ji over the phone that he wants to befriend Ji. The real name of the mistress in the video is said to be Zhao Hongxia.She was allegedly detained for 30 days for shooting the sex tape.

As the maelstrom of sex scandal around Lei Zhengfu swirled, the ignominious official was also exposed to have built multiple public works projects whose contractor was a construction company owned by Lei’s younger brother, Lei Zhengkui. The brother, formerly a farmer, has turned into a multimillionaire thanks to Lei’s power and influence. Even Lei’s mistress has wound up her beauty salon, entered the construction industry and profited from contracts granted by Lei.

A reporter from the state-run Xinhua Agency has confirmed with the press office of Chongqing Municipal Government that they have placed the sex tape case on file for investigation. So far, they have established that the video is authentic and not deceptively edited. But the identity of the man in the video is yet to be verified. Lei01Lei02Lei03

Netizens’ comments

树叶儿198661:This bastard. I was too disgusted to eat anything after seeing these photos. How can it be so disgusting? I support you (addressed to Ji Xuguang). Though I can’t help you, I hope you can be safe every time. Work hard!

谭诗怡S:f**k!! Too damn disgusting, these people!! Thank you for your exposé!!! Don’t ever be subdued by the power!!!

胡德民PeterHu微博达人:This news story was reported by all kinds of media in Taiwan today. Apple Daily calls him ‘Edison Lei’ directly.

走邪路的Jason微博达人:This lewd-looking man is really f**king disgusting! How could that one under him possibly put up with him? She didn’t throw up?

中国黑社会主义:This is Chinese Gorruptment! (Government+Corruption) Taiwan fighting back and seizing the mainland can be expected soon.

很久__以前:Actually, there are just too many things like this in China. They just don’t get exposed. Even the party secretary in our village has embezzled too much money.

江潇J-shero新浪个人认证 :His look alone is disgusting enough! I will watch closely. Let’s see how they can possibly remain lawless under the sun!

cherry丽和:Is he still okay? At this age, I am so afraid that he would kick the bucket after a cerebral hemorrhage or a heart attack during his ejaculation and orgasm. Then China will lose another good cadre in the government.

啸啸愤蹄:The uncle is so great! Hard working! Enjoying life! At this age! Still erecting! And a powerhouse! Sex between man and woman! Why not admit it! It’s man’s nature! Congratulations! The video shows your manner! Great erection! A true man! Why be so shy! Take your credit! Caught red-handed! Wanted to deny! Take my suggestion! Hurry up and castrate yourself! To show your innocence! Besides this, any other solution?

    Good thing I already ate my Thanksgiving dinner, otherwise I would have lost my appetite.

    Not quite sure what the issue is here. The age of consent is 14 years and she is an ernai, so is willingly doing this. As such nobody is being hurt here. Now you might (like me) find this distasteful, you might (like me) question the existance of ernai in a materialistic crazy society like China’s, you might (like me) question both people’s sense of moral and how he got all the money to support her. But at the end of the day there doesn’t seem to be anything illegal going on. There’s more shocking things in China’s news every day …

    I agree with Ed. I find it “distasteful” as well, but in the end is that really proof of “corruption”? Women are attracted to power and, as far as I can tell, she’s a willing participant.

    I’d rather here the reasons why those around him are suddenly so finanically successful. His farmer brother suddenly becomes a multimillionaire? Sounds like that’s the REAL corruption scandal here.

      First all, he is a married official who should never ‘maintain improper sexual relations with another woman.’ But more important, please see my latest post.

        Ok, the bribery/slavery is definitely corruption, but I would say the fact that he’s a married cheater isn’t (that just makes him a shitty husband). Whatever expectations are for officials, married or otherwise, clearly they don’t have their priorities straight. It’s not the cheating, it’s the bribe.

          Yeah, I agree. Any type of sexual relation between two reasonable adults, as long as both parties are voluntary, should be a private matter. But Chinese ordinary people are simply too averse to government officials to understand that…
