JFK airport worker accidentally emails genital photo

NEW YORK, July 1 (UPI) -- A security supervisor at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport was fired for accidentally sending nude photo to colleagues, officials said.

FJC Security confirmed Gerard Robson, a project manager for the company, was fired after the picture of him nude from the waist down was accidentally included in a June 21 email containing photos of a fender bender in the airport's parking lot, the New York Post reported Monday.

The email, which was sent from Robson's company-issued BlackBerry, was sent to about 20 colleagues, including subordinates, two FJC vice presidents and a pair of New York Port Authority supervisors.

Robson sent out an email apologizing for the error.

"Earlier this morning, while I was sending out a notification regarding a Motor Vehicle Accident, I had taken several pictures of the vehicle," Robson wrote. "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 truly sorry for my actions."

FJC spokesman Mike McKeon confirmed Robson was quickly fired.

"Who knows? Maybe he'll run for mayor," McKeon joked, referring to former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., who resigned over a scandal involving inappropriate photos in 2011 and is now running for New York mayor.
