PONTIAC – After a story went viral about a month ago after Pontiac MP William Amos was photographed naked in front of his screen during a House of Commons meeting, he was caught urinating during another meeting, May 26. Once again, he finds himself at the center of one of the most shared stories on the planet.
“While virtually attending the non-public proceedings of the House of Commons, I urinated without realizing the camera was on. I’m deeply embarrassed by my conduct and the distress it may have caused anyone who witnessed it,” Amos wrote on Twitter.
The MP decided to temporarily step down from his role as Parliamentary Secretary and his committee duties in order to seek appropriate support. No details have been released on how the incident occurred or what help Amos is seeking.
Media outlets around the world have picked up on the story. “Although accidental and not visible to the public, my action was completely inappropriate and I apologize unreservedly,” said Amos, who will continue to serve as Pontiac’s MP.
At press time, the Pontiac riding’s executive of the Liberal Party of Canada hadn’t reacted. They gave their support to the MP following the first incident last month.
