From China Daily:

A provincial vice-governor has been expelled from the Communist Party of China and removed from office for taking bribes and abusing power, the latest casualty of a nationwide crackdown on corruption.

The Beijing Times said on Sunday that the party’s anti-graft Central Commission for Discipline Inspection had found He Minxu (‰ΩïÈóΩÊó≠), vice-governor of the eastern province of Anhui, guilty of taking bribes worth several million yuan (several hundred thousand dollars).

The case of He, who was taken into custody in June, is one of many lurid corruption scandals to have come out of Anhui. Several former judges were tried last month for taking bribes while serving in the province’s city of Fuyang. [Full Text]
