Insane greed

In China, police arrested a former mayor for corruption. He had a secret cellar building in his house where he hid 13.5 tons of gold worth $ 625 million and $ 37 billion in Chinese currency.

That's a lot of gold and currency even on a mayor's salary. Surely some digits got lost/added in the translation.

$37.625 billion seems a bit more than what I would expect a Mayor could swing via normal graft and corruption. That's championship level graft there (or perhaps black ops slush fund stuff).

Might have to award him that honorary membership posthumously...if you know what I mean.
