Beijing: A lawmaker in central China has been fired after screen shots from a sex video of him were posted online, authorities said on Saturday.
Tian Hanwen has been removed from his post in the standing committee of People's Congress of Ruyang County in Henan province and expelled from the Communist Party of China, authorities said in a statement on Saturday.
Last month, an anonymous woman posted several sex video images of her and Tian on the popular website: kdnet.net, reported Xinhua.
According to the woman's posting, Tian had asked her out for sex many times since 2006. He said he'd help her find a job but failed to keep his promise.
She said Tian shot the sex video, and said she was not the only woman involved with him over the years.
Saturday's statement also said that Tian has been involved in other illegal matters and local law authorities are processing his case.
