This Chinese Communist Party official has been sacked after his wife allegedly caught him in bed with another woman and recorded this viral video of the confrontation.
Jia Ding was stripped of his post as Party Committee Secretary of Yongle Town, which is in Xinpu New Area in Zunyi City in south-western China’s Guizhou Province, after the incident.

Footage now seen more than 10 million times in less than 24 hours was leaked by Jia’s wife on social media on the evening of the 28th August.
The video shows her having stormed into a bedroom and screaming at a woman wearing only underwear, as well as her chubby husband who is shirtless and trying to pull her away.
The trio shout at each other in local dialect, but the suspected mistress at one stage says in Mandarin Chinese: “This is your problem – sort it out yourselves!”
Jia’s alleged girlfriend attempts to cover her face in the video while the official’s wife grabs her arms and hair.
As the video ends, Jia appears on camera trying to restrain his wife, but his spouse shoots back: “Don’t touch me! If you touch me I’ll call the police.”
A statement by the Xinpu New Area government on its website confirmed that the man appearing in the footage was local town party chief Jia Ding.
By 29th August, Jia had been stripped off his post and sacked, pending an internal investigation, the statement said.
