Taiwan's current president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) frequently speaks about his "clean image," and after running an "anti-corruption" campaign, he told the public that "things would be better right away" (馬上就會好) when he took office on May 20, 2008.

However, things in Taiwan have gotten worse since that date in all kinds of ways.

But one thing hasn't changed a bit: the KMT's way of doing business.

In Taipei's Da-an District (大安區), for example, KMT legislator Diane Lee (李慶安) was recently forced out of office after a scandal which revealed that she had held office illegally for 14 years while possessing dual nationality and had regularly lied to the public about it. A by-election to fill her vacated legislative seat is scheduled for tomorrow -- Saturday, March 28, 2009.

Read what the KMT was caught doing just two days before this election:

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Taipei City councilors yesterday accused the Taipei City Government [led by the KMT's Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌)] of abusing municipal resources to campaign for Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) candidate Chiang Nai-shin (蔣乃辛) in tomorrows legislative by-election, and urged municipal officials to maintain neutrality.

About a dozen *staff from the Taipei City Department of Civil Affairs* [台北市政府民政局] visited a traditional market in Da-an District (大安) to *hand out pamphlets urging residents to vote tomorrow.* However, *two people wearing the departments vest* were also spotted *calling on residents to vote for Chiang.*

Its a serious violation of administrative neutrality and we need to stop public servants from campaigning for a specific candidate in such an obvious way [...]

Notice the vests the women are wearing. They belong to the Taipei City Department of Civil Affairs -- under a KMT government.

That's the way they roll -- and they do it in broad daylight! This time, it was captured on video.

I sure hope that the voters (even in the so-called "deep blue" Da-an District) will have enough sense to NOT vote for either of the pan-blue candidates in this election -- or in any other election, for that matter. Only then will Taiwan get back to making the kind of improvements that occurred due to the efforts of those who have worked so hard to build democracy here.
