Franziska Giffey has been family minister since 2018. Already ten years before she married Karsten Giffey. In 2009, their son was born together. The Federal Minister for Family Affairs herself has also had to contend with professional difficulties in the past. So Giffey already had to face plagiarism accusations. In February last year, the Free University of Berlin examined the doctoral thesis of the SPD politician. The author herself had asked for this after plagiarism hunters from the website "VroniPlag" had pointed out irregularities in her work. There was even speculation about a possible resignation from the ministerial post. The audit was about whether Giffey had copied or not quoted correctly. However, the Federal Minister for Family Affairs got off lightly almost a year ago.

The university presidium has therefore decided to give Giffey only a reprimand. But the 41-year-old was allowed to keep her doctorate and thus also her ministerial post. Her husband Karsten seems to have less luck now. However, it remains to be seen whether he will appeal the decision of the Berlin Administrative Court.
