China: the dissoluteness of Olympic building chief

ESWN compared the reports in Mainland China and Overseas media concerning the corruption case of Beijing vice Mayor Liu Zhihua (the Olympic building chief). The former described his conduct by terms like “dissoluteness” and “degeneration” without much explanation. No comments and discussions were allowed in internet forum. Overseas media found out that “dissoluteness” means power, money and sex; but what is the exact ratio of the three is still opened to speculation.
