JFK Airport Supervisor Goes Full Weiner: “Who knows? Maybe he’ll run for mayor”

Posted by on Jul 01, 2013 at 7:29 am

C’mon, guys, haven’t you idiots learned a lesson from the disgraced Anthony Weiner? Put the phone down and stop taking pictures of your junk. If you can’t at least control that urge, you think maybe you could stash the photos somewhere so they don’t “accidentally” get sent out? Ironically enough, this tool was out of a job almost immediately. It took  Weiner two weeks to fess up.

A JFK Airport security supervisor has been fired for mistakenly sending out a mass e-mail blast — of his genitals — to nearly two dozen shocked underlings, supervisors and Port Authority executives.

The embarrassing incident occurred around 7:15 a.m. June 21 after Gerard Robson, a project manager for private contractor FJC Security, responded to an airport parking-lot fender bender involving a security guard’s car.

Robson had hoped to alert his bosses and PA execs to what happened by taking photos of the cars and e-mailing the images with his company-issued BlackBerry, sources said.

But Robson somehow attached another snapshot stored on the cellphone — showing him inside a car, “waist down, naked penis out, belly and all,” according to one source.

It went out to about 20 individuals, including subordinates, at least two FJC veeps and two PA supervisors, the sources said.

Robson realized his mistake almost immediately.

Instead of lamely trying to claim he was hacked(!), what does this tool do? He scurried to try and delete the image from the computers of co-workers. Sorry, pal, too late.

He rushed off to try to delete the photo from the office computers and cellphones of subordinates, the sources said.

The former New Jersey transit cop also e-mailed an apology, according to what the sources said was a copy of the correspondence.

“Earlier this morning, while I was sending out a notification regarding a Motor Vehicle Accident, I had taken several pictures of the vehicle,’’ the e-mail said.

“In error, I accidentally attached a very inappropriate photo and without realizing the mistake, continued to send out the notification with the photograph attachment.

“Please accept my sincere apology as I am tuly [sic] sorry for my actions.”

At least some see the irony of it all:

His employer then moved quickly to suspend him before firing him, according to Mike McKeon, an FJC spokesman.

“Who knows? Maybe he’ll run for mayor,” McKeon quipped.

    He should have lied and tried to blame others. That’s what beautiful people do.

    It is ridiculous that someone should lose their job over what was clearly an honest mistake; and one he immediately apologized for.

    Too bad even the Right, which is usually forgiving after a sincere apology, has nothing better to do than mock this poor man who lost his means of feeding himself and possibly his family.

    “It is ridiculous that someone should lose their job over what was clearly an honest mistake; and one he immediately apologized for.”

    Huh? using a company-issued BlackBerry to take the pictures of himself in the first place is and should be a fireable action. Then sending them out from that same company-issued device just compounded it.

    Using the company device for this is a bit more than just using it to take some snaps of friends at a restaurant. It would deserve a more serious reprimand than the restaurant scenario because of the possibility of just this happening. And trying to cover up the accident demonstrates even more poor judgement (he should have known it wouldn’t be possible and tampering with other’s machines only compounds the issue) even if it was provoked by the panic of the situation.

    The suspension was reasonable and while it should be an employer’s right to make such decisions about what is or is not an offence worth terminating someone, it does seem harsh in an economy like this to throw a (one assumes) valued and experienced supervisor to the wolves for a really unfortunate couple of mistakes. If he is any significant age he will probably never have a similar level job again and any employer who Googles employees before hiring them will know of this issue.

    He didn’t “lose” it. He flushed it down a rathole by doing something we associate with teenagers. Nice try though.
