Han Responds to Tsai Cheng-yuan's Smear Campaign|韓國瑜氣憤回應蔡正元 若有收吳錢願辭市長

While attending a report on gas explosion donations at the city council, Kaohsiung City Mayor Han Kuo-yu was asked about an accusation made by Tsai Cheng-yuan that he had accepted NT$ 40 million from Wu Den-yih for election funds. Han angrily responded that he would resign as mayor if the rumor were true. Han also said he has been attacked by smear campaign after smear campaign since becoming mayor and it is becoming unbearable.

If Chair Wu Den-yih really gave Han Kuo-yu NT$ 40 million, I'll resign as Kaohsiung City mayor. I'll say it again. I'll resign as Kaohsiung City mayor. I can make this vow because my character can stand up to scrutiny.

Angered by the latest smear campaign against him, Kaohsiung City Mayor Han Kuo-yu twice vowed to resign if the rumors were true.

On the 25th, former Kuomintang lawmaker Tsai Cheng-yuan posted on Facebook that Wu Den-yih personally raised NT$ 40 million and gave it to Han to fund a presidential run.

An irate Han said he would resign if anyone could produce evidence Tsai's story was true.

Where's the evidence, Tsai Cheng-yuan? I preach love and tolerance, but there's a limit. You can't smear me, kick me, hit me and bite me without consequence. How can you make up something like?

Han said he has had to deal with continuous smear campaigns since becoming mayor and there is only so much anyone can tolerate. In recent days, Han has also had to deal with the Democratic Progressive Party's Kaohsiung City Council caucus calling a press conference to say a land development company owned 49 percent by the Kaohsiung City Government and 51 percent by Taiwan International Ports Corp. had two city government appointees on its board, with one of them being the president of the company. According to the DPP, Cheng Chien-teng got the appointment as a political reward because he was the former secretary of Han's wife when she was a city councilor and previously worked for Han at Taipei Agricultural Products Marketing, and Cheng should have refused the appointment because there was a conflict of interest.

Cheng Chien-teng is a man of mystery. We can't even find a picture of him, but what we have been able to dig up is that he worked for Lee Chia-fen for many years and then worked for Han Kuo-yu.

It was not a political reward. The city council has the right of oversight. If the appointment was illegal and the city council didn't discover anything was wrong, I'd just send the application straight in.

Han said Cheng got the job because of his passion and ability to cope with pressure, and his wife had nothing to do with it. Cheng's appointment will require central approval. Han says he hopes the central government can respect the right of the local government to appoint officials. He also said he welcomes public oversight.

高雄市長 韓國瑜表示:「如果吳敦義主席,真的有拿四千萬給韓國瑜,我可以辭掉高雄市市長。我再說一遍,我會辭掉高雄市市長,代表我的人格不容這樣的懷疑。」

高雄市長韓國瑜氣到連講兩次,願意辭掉高雄市長的職位,罕見在鏡頭前發脾氣、講重話,是因為國民黨前立委蔡正元25號在臉書寫文章,說吳敦義靠自己的力量,募款四千萬交給韓國瑜作市長競選經費,對這個說法,韓國瑜非常生氣,說是抹黑,也說只要能證明他有收錢他就辭市長。

高雄市長 韓國瑜表示:「所以蔡正元委員你要拿出證據來,我講的愛與包容不是無限的,不是(抹)黑韓國瑜不用錢的,隨便怎麼黑,怎麼踹,怎麼打,怎麼咬都沒關係,你怎麼這樣講法呢?」

韓國瑜說從上任以來,持續被抹黑,就算自己強調愛與包容,也不是無限上綱,會讓他這麼生氣的點,除了蔡正元,恐怕還有高雄市議會民進黨黨團召開的記者會,說市府出資4成9,台灣港務公司出資5成1,開設的高雄港區土地開發有限公司,市府有兩位董事派任權,而其中1位董事將就任總經理,但這次市府派任的總經理程建騰,過去是市長太太李佳芬當議員時的秘書,也曾跟韓國瑜到北農工作,質疑他沒有利益迴避。

民進黨高雄市議員 黃文益表示:「程建騰這位神秘人物,到目前為止我們確實查不到他,連照片也查不到,但是我們所勾接出來的資料,他確實是長年跟隨李佳芬,然後之後呢,也跟隨韓國瑜。」

高雄市長 韓國瑜表示:「沒有什麼利益迴避不迴避的問題,用一個人,他所經手的案子,議會可以嚴厲監督,如果今天我察覺不法,議會沒有發現,我直接送法辦了。」

韓國瑜強調他選擇程建騰是看上對方的熱情跟抗壓性,沒有親信或夫人干政的問題,派令雖然還是要中央審核才能通過,但韓國瑜希望中央尊重地方任用的權利,也歡迎外界嚴格監督。
