Sex tape of Chongqing official and 18-year-old mistress leaked online
From Sina Weibo
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, 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 jdwsy.com (ren min jian du wang, meaning ‘the website of the people’s supervision’), an unofficial watchdog. Zhu Ruifeng, a reporter from jdswy.com, 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.

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：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：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：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?
