Sex tape used to bribe Chinese official goes viral

/ 05:52 PM November 27, 2012

BEIJING—A scandal involving a teen-age woman allegedly hired by developers to have sex with a city official and secretly taped the liaisons to use for extortion has shaken up the Chinese metropolis formerly headed by fallen politician Bo Xilai.

Already the city official has been fired after a leaked tape went viral — and a whistleblowing former journalist says he has several more tapes.

News of the video, apparently shot in 2007 but only leaked this month, comes as the central government is ramping up its anti-corruption efforts in a bid to burnish the credentials of a new slate of incoming leaders.
