This is huge news, I'm surprised nobody in this forum has brought it up yet.

I was waiting for the one you know who that is behind him to be revealed his involvement. Since you have already mentioned it I am happy to terminate my silence.

I don't care when or from where one's ancestor arrived in Taiwan. If you were born in Taiwan or Penghu (that is Formosa or Pescadores) and are willing to pledge allegiance to the sovereignty of Taiwan, then you are a Stockholder of Taiwan Sovereignty. If you have a family or job here and are willing to pledge allegiance to the sovereignty of Taiwan, then you are a Stakeholder of Taiwan Sovereignty.

What ARE you wittering on about? It is just another Taiwanese politico getting caught. No news at all, except for here on this tiny little pissant non-country. Taiwanese politicians are corrupt. End. Of. Story.

Sandman is totally right. Lin got caught doing what all 3rd world government officials do. And the guy on the back of the scooter is nicknamed "bu zhan guo" (non-stick pot) for a good reason - he's the Chinese version of Teflon Tony.

Politicians all over the world are corrupt. This is true even in "developed" countries. Anyone catch the Jamie Dimon hearings? It was so obvious that all these senators are owned by JPM/Dimon and are extremely afraid of making him angry. This is why the insane ruling that made corporations into "people" has made things so much worse in the states. Now bribery and corruption is so much easier and in a sense perfectly legal. The corporations own the politicians, here, there, almost everywhere.

It was not surprising to see Lin Yi Shi's accuser arrested last Friday. I guess they released him on Sunday, but I personally think his life expectancy would be longer if he was still in custody.
Why not???

If you are what you eat, then I guess that makes me "fast, cheap, and easy"!

Lin Yi Shi (林益世) bribery case

Postby headhonchoII » 03 Jul 2012, 21:36

For what it's worth I doubt Ma is corrupt, his wife would probably kick him back in line for one thing.

Still I'm interested to see if the other legislators who were splitting the bribe money will be indicted too.

It's interesting, revenge is a powerful motivator, the contractor has obviously had enough dealing with this greedy pig.

headhoncho; you must be really naive to believe Ma is really clean. Mass media in Taiwan does wonders with this kind of propaganda. No politician is clean no matter how much they claim to be. There was a land deal with Lee Teng Hui where a few hundred million dollars went missing, another land deal involving Ma Ying Jeou a few billion NTD disappeared into thin air. Really?

It's not surprising that politiicians are corrupt. Neither is it surprising how there are and will be differences in the way corrupt KMT officials and DPP officials are treated at present, as there seems to be a lot of hypocrisy going on.
But not to worry - there will be a convenient typhoon or earthquake to bury all this under. Or the guilty party will run away to the States, the customs official "responsible" for letting him out will resign and that will be the end of that.
