threatened to take legal action against Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) for saying that Huang supported lifting a ban on imports of Japanese food products from prefectures near the 2011 Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant disaster and the decriminalization of drugs.

The furor began on Monday, when Hung said during a visit to Chiayi City that she supported a recall campaign initiated last year by civic groups against Huang.

“Huang’s support for the lifting of the ban on Japanese food products and the decriminalization of drugs, as well as his blind conformity to the Democratic Progressive Party’s [DPP] illegal actions, have triggered a public outcry,” she said, adding that she welcomed the recall campaign.

The campaign was launched by an alliance of New Taipei City residents against same-sex marriage over Huang’s support for the legalization of gay marriage.    [FULL  STORY]
