In this photo taken on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012, a woman covers her face with a leaflet as she sits with a group of elderly men near a temple in Xilinhot in northern China’s Inner Mongolia. In the small town where sheep and cattle easily outnumber humans, a deputy chief paid three times an average urban resident's annual salary to become its police chief. Buying and selling office is so rampant in China that it has eroded public trust in officialdom, undermining the ruling Communist Party’s image as an institute that promotes the competent, not the connected.
