Certainly one of those stories of can you top this in the KMT corruption files. Lee Chao-ching, the KMT Nantou County Commissioner who has been indicted in 117 cases of bribery was just released on bail. One of the first things he did was to immediately apply to be allowed to resume his position as County Commissioner. Say what??? No remorse?? Just wanting to get back on the gravy train?? Wanting to destroy any evidence that may still be there??

But to add insult to injury, the Ministry of the Interior of the Ma administration said it would consider it. Fortunately, protests came and they decided that somehow it would look a little suspicious for the Ma team if they granted it. Geesch!!
