John Kerry fined $50 for fail­ing to shovel snow out­side home

The Star (St. Lucia) - - INTERNATIONAL -

John Kerry has many ti­tles — sec­re­tary of state, for­mer se­na­tor, one-time Demo­cratic can­di­date for pres­i­dent. The globe-span­ning diplo­mat can add one more: snow shov­el­ing scofflaw.

Af­ter a bl­iz­zard dumped two feet of snow on his city this week, Bos­ton Mayor Martin Walsh vowed to crack down on any­one who left the side­walks in front of their homes and busi­nesses buried in snow.

He wasn’t kid­ding. On Thurs­day, of­fi­cials tagged Kerry with a $50 fine at 9:45 a.m. for fail­ing to clear the snow from the side of his Bea­con Hill man­sion. Kerry was in Saudi Ara­bia at­tend­ing the fu­neral of King Ab­dul­lah with Pres­i­dent Obama.

Kerry spokesman Glen John­son told the Bos­ton Globe that Kerry will promptly pay the fine. He said shov­el­ers fin­ished clear­ing the side­walk late Thurs­day morn­ing.
