NJ School Board Member Resigns After Taking Zoom Meeting On Toilet


A New Jersey School Board member, who made national headlines by opposing an LGBT curriculum, has resigned after an embarrassing incident during a Zoom meeting. Frances Cogelja didn’t realize she’d left her laptop camera on when she took it with her while going to the bathroom during the public comments section of a board meeting. Nearly 150 participants, including students, apparently saw Cogelja relieve herself. A short time later, Vice President Scott James-Vickery reportedly told Cogelja: “You need to go. We’re here trying to get work done while you’re sitting on the toilet.”
