Corrupt Chinese Communist Party official caught with 13 tons of gold in his basement. He's basically Scrooge McDuck.


A Chinese Communist Party big shot and former mayor of Haikou City, named Zhang Qi, was busted with 13.5 tons of gold and huge piles of cash (in dollars, euros and yuan) collectively worth millions or billions of dollars in the basement of his home, according to a variety of sensationalist and disreputable news organizations.

The bust was part of a nationwide crackdown on corrupt officials.

I wonder if he would occasionally go down to the basement and kind of roll around in it.
