Career

Zhang Wenxiong was born in Yueyang, Hunan on 4 April 1962, and he was entered to Hunan Institute of Science and Technology in 1980 and graduated in 1982. Then he became the officer in Yueyang Education Bureau. From 1985 to 1994, he served in Yueyang County Party Committee. In 1994, he transferred to Office of Hunan Party Committee until 2001. In 2006 he became the CPC Secretary of Huaihua, and transferred to Hengyang in 2011.[1] In 2011, he was elected as Member of CPC Provincial Standing Committee of Hunan. Zhang became the head of Hunan Provincial Party Propaganda Department in August 2015.[2]

Downfall

On November 8, 2016, Chen Shulong was placed under investigation by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the party's internal disciplinary body, for "serious violations of regulations".[3] Zhang was expelled from the Communist Party on February 27, 2017.[4]

On August 16, 2018, Zhang was sentenced to 15 years in prison for taking bribes worth 23.35 million yuan and unidentified 51.58 million yuan property in Guilin People's Intermediate Court.[5]

Personal life

Zhang married Tu Aifang (涂爱芳), a businesswoman who accompanied him from Huaihua to Hengyang and used Zhang's power to undertake projects all the way.[6] In Zhang's hometown of Yueyang, a company without sand mining qualification in which Tu held a stake had a sand mining sales amount of nearly 1 billion yuan ($156 million) in nine months, while Tu and her partners had a total profit of more than 300 million yuan ($46.8 million).[6]
