School board chief quits after 'chubby wubby' gaffe
Mother of six called fat by school board president
A school board president has stepped down after he called a mother fat while unaware that his microphone was on.
Ray Cote was heard over the microphone at last month's Mahopac, New York Board of Education meeting talking negatively about one of the active parents who routinely volunteers at the school, reported CBS 2.
"This one here, chubby wubby, she gets fatter and fatter every meeting," Cote said.
Cote made the comments as he replied to a question asked by another meeting participant, apparently unaware that the microphone was on and that the meeting was being streamed live on the school district's website.
