    CEC revokes Diane Lee’s elected status

    link

    We have discussed this in a previous thread, but I can't find it.

    The Central Election Commission (CEC) last night decided to revoke former Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislator Diane Lee’s (李慶安) elected status both as a Taipei City councilor and as a legislator, after the US Department of State on Thursday confirmed that Lee’s US citizenship was still valid.

    “The CEC believes that Diane Lee was a dual citizen between 1991 and 2005, and thus decided in a meeting today [Friday] to revoke her elected status as Taipei City councilor in 1994, and as legislator in 1999, 2002 and 2005,” CEC Secretary-General Teng Tien-yu (鄧天祐) said. “We will also void her elected certificates.”
    Too bad Jfuh's gone AWOL because he insisted that she had given up her citizenship in 1994. It turns out that she has been a US citizen all this time, and that is illegal under Taiwanese law.

    Somewhat ironic that one of the people running for her seat next month in the special election us a US-born Caucasian who became a Taiwanese citizen about a decade ago. He is the first Caucasian to run for the national legislature in Taiwan's history.

    With the KMT's biggest cheerleader back, I wonder if he will come on this thread and admit he was wrong about Lee's citizenship status.
