Working in the radio industry, you try to be VERY aware when the microphones are on.

Everyone knows someone who has said something stupid, not realizing that the mic was hot. Some get fired; some weather the storm.

This school official in Putnam County, N.Y., is now on the hot seat because of comments he made at a recent meeting about an overweight parent.

Not realizing the microphone was on, he referred to her as "Chubby Wubby."

He also said: She gets fatter and fatter every meeting."

Things went south for this guy, Raymond Cote, real fast.

Since the April comments, he has resigned as president of Mahopac Central School District's Board of Education, The Journal News reported. He also withdrew as a candidate for the May 20 election for the Mahopac, N.Y., school board.
