A Tampa City Council aide resigned after a video of her & # 39; s cough & # 39; went viral.
The cough-curse was first highlighted by a Tampa Bay Times reporter who noticed the strange cough during a recent meeting of the Tampa City Council. In the video provided, a legislative badistant for Councilman Guido Maniscalco gets up from his chair, crosses the room and coughs in a way that sounded suspiciously like "a hole".
Council member Luis Viera was heard to say: "Did he just say something?" to maniscalco.
Carrie Henriquez, the woman who was seen in the video, told the Tampa Bay Times that she was simply sick and denied saying anything that could be interpreted as a curse.
However, the next day, Henríquez submitted his resignation, a job he has performed since 2015 according to the records of the city.
Maniscalco told the newspaper that he was surprised by the resignation of his badistant. He says that she cited the "insults" after going viral online as part of the reason for his departure.
"That's social networks," said Maniscalco. "She has decided to go ahead and that's it."
