TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (131) . . . The Sequel!

This week's bonus joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Reuters (from Friday, September 7; link good at time of posting):
A corrupt senior Chinese official was denounced by his 11 mistresses after some of their husbands were sentenced to death for graft, state media said on Friday.

The news comes just days after a senior provincial Communist Party official was executed for blowing up his mistress with a car bomb.

. . . .

Pang Jiayu, 63, former deputy head of the provincial political advisory body in the northwestern province of Shaanxi, was sacked and expelled from the Communist Party for graft, Xinhua news agency reported.

"Pang did not expect that he would be brought down by his own 11 mistresses," the official People's Daily said in a report carried on its Web site.

. . . .

The Party's discipline inspection commission said in July that they would deal with the case severely.

"What awaits Pang Jiayu is severe punishment," the report said.
