A school board member resigns after accidentally going to the toilet in from of colleagues on a Zoom meeting
Mortified New Jersey school board member Frances Cogelja accidentally left her camera on when she went to the bathroom on Monday, November 23, broadcasting her backside to 150 people on a Zoom meeting.
After her bathroom break, the New Jersey board’s vice president, Scott James-Vickery, told Cogelja: “You need to go.”
“We’re here trying to get work done while you’re sitting on the toilet,” he snapped.
Cogelja has made waves before by criticizing the addition of LGBTQ history to the school curriculum.
Cogelja said an “alternate lifestyle narrative is being shoved [down] our children’s throats” and repeatedly asked how she could opt her child out of learning about this topic, according to North Jersey.
“I have every right as a parent to not have my child participate in something that I do not think is suitable as part of a public school curriculum,” Cogelja reportedly said.
“I believe conversations having to do with sexuality should be had at home between parents and their children.”
Congelja resigned on Tuesday, November 24.
