Bad Morals Hit Olympics

Liu Zhihua, the Vice-Mayor of Beijing who was in charge of urban planning, construction and sports activities for the 2008 Olympics, has been fired for corruption and "bad morals".

The Beijing Municipal People's Congress removed him after finding him guilty of misdemeanors, his case will be further investigated.

Over 115,000 members of the Communist Party were punished in 2005, for corruption and other offences.

Regarding the great world "Bung Fest", that is currently being played out in Germany, Panorama dished the dirt on the corruption and bribery in FIFA last night; well worth watching if you have the opportunity.

I wonder if it is possible to hold an international sporting event without corruption and kickbacks?
