Meet Maria Borelius. The J.Lo of the political world. Had an amazing 8 day express career as a Minister in the new formed right wing government in Sweden.
Reason for her resigning from her post? It was revealed that she had in the past hired a nanny, "black" as we call it in Sweden, meaning without paying taxes and an official salary. Money under the table basically. Ok fair enough, a lot of people do it. What is interesting here is her explanation for not paying her nanny a proper official taxed wage:
"I couldn't afford it at that time."
This comes from a woman who together with her husband at that time made 16 milion Swedish Kronor a year (roughly 1.6 million Euros).
