The China Post news staff–A senior official of the ruling Kuomintang yesterday offered NT$10 million to whoever can prove that President Ma Ying-jeou secretly met with a bookmaker in her home on Sep. 10. “I will pay NT$10 million to anyone who can produce a photograph of the meeting within two weeks,” Min-hui Huang (黃敏惠), vice chairman of KMT, said in an interview. The alleged meeting, first reported by the weekly Next Magazine, was “out-and-out fabrication,” Huang said. According to Huang, the report, distorted by the opposition the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), has provided ammunition for the party in its smear campaign against President Ma Ying-jeou.
If the DPP cannot produce proof, Tsai Ing-wen, DPP chairwoman and presidential candidate, should withdraw from the presidential race, said Huang, who also called on voters to do KMT justice by teaching the DPP a lesson with their votes.
