China: Naked official debate

A “naked official” is an official whose wife and kids have left China to live in a foreign country, leaving only him behind to take care of things at home. Juilian from DANWEI translated a debate from Southern Weekend on whether or not these naked officials should be fired as many of them are associated with corruption.
