Chinese lawmakers stripped disgraced politician Bo Xilai of his last official position Friday, Oct. 26m, 2012, formally expelling him from the country's top legislature and setting the stage for criminal proceedings against the once-rising political star. Though largely a formality since Bo was purged from the Communist Party late last month, his expulsion from the congress removes his immunity from prosecution. That sets the stage for a criminal case involving accusations of corruption and abuse of power. (AP Photo/Andy Wong, File)
