Prosecutor Wu Wen-chung qualified for numerous awards recently when he joked with reporters that Chen Shui-bian should be given the death sentence because the KMT accuses him of misues of his "state affairs" fund; this is all before Chen has even been questioned and before it has been decided whether there is enough evidence to warrant a trial. Award givers are debating which category Prosecutor Wu best fits. Is it the "Fair Play and Justice Befitting a Prosecutor" Award? Or the man most dedicated to the "Return of the KMT Thug Mentality" Award? Or the "Another Example of the Peter Principle and a Man Promoted Far Beyond His Capabilities" Award. Perhaps Prosecutor Wu deserves all three awards
