More sex clip skeletons in China closet

China is facing an avalanche of sex scandals as an ‘investigative reporter’ whose videos of an official in compromising position with his mistress created embarrassment for the government, plans to release more such clips.

The threat came even as an ''anchor'' of a TV station charged a Communist Party politician of coercing her into long-term relationship.

Zhu Ruifeng, a reporter with counter-corruption website, told state-run Global Times that five more sex videos featuring officials of Chongqing, till early this year ruled by disgraced party leader Bo Xilai, will be released after establishing their authenticity.

Zhu posted the 12-second video on the Internet last week showing Lei Zhengfu, then secretary of the Beibei District Committee of the Communist Party of China in Chongqing, in a compromising position with an 18-year-old Zhao Hongxia.

Zhu claims Zhao has been Lei’s mistress for the last five years. Lei 54, who has been sacked and faced disciplinary probe by the party, had been receiving bribes and sexual favours provided by local businessmen, Zhu said.
