Skip to comments.City fine gives John Kerry lesson in snow diplomacy
Posted on 01/30/2015 7:25:47 AM PST by BlatherNaut
Secretary of State John F. Kerry now Bostons most prominent shoveling scofflaw returned home to his Louisburg Square manse last night, his sidewalk newly cleared just in time to avoid an international incident.
Kerry is due to host the foreign ministers of Canada and Mexico in Boston today and tomorrow, he announced on his Twitter feed.
Glad to welcome FM @Baird & FS @JoseAMeadeK up to #Boston on Fri. Hope they dont mind a little snow. #GoodNeighbors, @JohnKerry tweeted.
But in a neighborhood where people were out diligently cleaning their sidewalks, Kerrys remained untouched two days after the blizzard, and City Hall hit Americas top diplomat with a $50 ticket yesterday after another citizen called it in to the Inspectional Services Department. His was one of 210 snow-removal citations issued yesterday.
Director of Code Enforcement Police Steven Tankle said the officer did not know that it was Kerrys house.
Well, you know, when ISD goes out, theyre indiscriminate about who they ticket and who they dont, said Keeta Gilmore, the chairwoman of the Beacon Hill Civic Association. Sounds like theyre out on the job.

He could have walked 3 blocks to Charles Street Supply and asked ‘Can I get me a snow shovel?’
I heard somewhere that he served in Vietnam
I’m sure he could have at least sent one of the servants.
She speaks Francaise and also wind surfs, bicyclettes and speaks Francaise (and was also in Viet Nam)....she should not be subject to the little peoples’ rules.
It was confetti left over from when Secretary Kerry brought peace, tranquility and brotherhood to the entire Middle East.
Charlie don’t shovel?
Would fresh urine melt all that snow?
Give out the address and the public will take care of it for you, John.
Loveeee! Can you give me a $50 coin so I can pay our fine?
“Snow for thee but not for me”.
“...Beacon Hill residents, who sometimes shovel the sidewalks of perfect strangers out of neighborliness.”
A snow job in reverse was it?
That man is the biggest Vagina in American Politics today. He even surpasses that PPOTUS.
Could have hired some kids to do it! Wait, the leftist won’t let them work without a business license. For their own good of course.
There is no need to denigrate vaginas.
Gotta agree with that, Gaffer. I'm quite partial to them myself.
Perhaps a**hole ?
For a more biting opinion of this latest JF’nK faux pas.
Damn right. He wouldn't have paid them unless he could shaft the taxpayers.
As they say in Boston, "He throws around quarters like they were manhole covers."
He's probably going to dock all his servants' pay for failing to take care of this and embarrassing him.
Didn’t he spend Christmas in Cambodia?
