Airport security boss fired after mass email photo of his genitals
A security supervisor at JFK Airport in New York City was fired after mistakenly emailing a photo of himself naked from the waist down to about 20 colleagues and supervisors, the New York Post reported on Monday.
Gerard Robson was quickly suspended from his job as a project manager at FJC Security, an airport security contractor, after the June 21 mishap, which ocurred while he was trying to document a minor car accident involving a security vehicle. Instead, a picture reportedly showing his genitals, went out to supervisors at both his company and the Port Authority, as well as subordinates.
Though Robson immediately sent an apology via email and moved to delete the embarassing photo from computers at his office, FJC barred him from entering the airport and suspended him before terminating him.
“Who knows? Maybe he’ll run for mayor,” FJC spokesperson Mike McKeon told the newspaper, a reference to former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY).
