Temporary State Secretary Already in Tabloids
Sweden’s new state secretary, Nicola Clase, is already in stormy weather.
She stepped up to the plate after her predecessor Ulrika Schenström quit Thursday after her own turbulent week of news headlines.
The Expressen newspaper reports that Nicola Clase who is temporarily taking over as Sweden’s most important civil servant hired a handyman and paid him under the table to the tune of some US$6 000.
Clase has confirmed the story, regrets the transaction and is prepared to set it right.
Earlier this week, Ulrica Schenström left the job after it emerged that she was on duty the night the paparazzi caught her at a pub drinking with a TV-reporter.
