Canadian lawmaker caught naked during virtual meeting
OTTAWA, Ontario / AP — A Canadian Parliament member was caught undressing during a video conference on Wednesday.
William Amos, who has represented the Quebec district of Pontiac since 2015, appeared on the screens of his fellow lawmakers completely naked. The pandemic has forced Canadian lawmakers to participate in virtual sessions.
A screenshot obtained by The Canadian Press shows Amos standing behind a desk between the Quebec and Canadian flags, his private parts hidden by what appears to be a cell phone in one hand.
“This was an unfortunate error,? Amos said in a statement. “My video was accidentally turned on as I was changing into my work clothes after going for a jog. I sincerely apologize to my colleagues in the House of Commons for this unintentional distraction. Obviously, it was an honest mistake and it won’t happen again.”
Amos was visible only to Parliament members and staffers on an internal video conference feed. Because he was not speaking, his image did not show up on the public feed.
Liberal Party colleague Mark Holland said Amos was “utterly mortified.” Holland said he was satisfied with the explanation from his colleague.
“I don’t think there was any ill intent. It’s certainly an unfortunate circumstance,? Holland said.
