Secretary Of State John Kerry

Wiki info

A special case is the Parlamentarischer Staatssekretär (parliamentary secretary of state), which is a member of parliament who is appointed to a ministry as a Staatssekretär; in the German Foreign Office and the German Chancellery the official title is Staatsminister (Minister of State). Such posts, which were intended to improve the connection between a ministry and the parliament, have recently become subject of some controversy. Critics claim that parliamentary secretaries of state are usually given little to no influence and responsibility within their ministry. All the while they are paid very generously due to receiving two salaries, both as secretary of state and as member of parliament. For example, when interviewed about his post as a parliamentary minister of state in the German Foreign Office during an investigation into visa abuse, Ludger Volmer claimed that he had been cut off from the workflow within the ministry, and called the Staatsminister office an "Unding" (absurdity).

His maternal extended family enjoyed great wealth as members of the Forbes and Dudley–Winthrop families. [6] Kerry's parents themselves were upper-middle class , and a wealthy great-aunt paid for him to attend elite boarding schools [2] such as Institut Montana Zugerberg in Switzerland. [7]
