电婊 (Diàn Biǎo): Power Whore

Li Xiaolin, the "power whore." (Artist: Badiucao 巴丢草)"

Nickname for Li Xiaolin, daughter of former premier Li Peng.

Li followed in her father's footsteps to study power generation and is now CEO of China Power International Development Ltd., a Hong Kong-listed arm of China's state-owned power monopoly. She is also a deputy of National People's Congress, where in 2012 she was ridiculed for appearing in a luxury suit, jewelry, and handbag. She has attributed her success to her own efforts, rather than her family background.
