ABINGTON, Mass. -- The chairman of a Massachusetts school board has resigned days after performing a magic trick at a televised meeting that made it appear as if he had removed a fellow board member's bra.
Russell FitzGerald said he resigned from the Abington School Committee on Monday after a weekend of reflection.
FitzGerald is an amateur magician who generally started meetings with a trick. Neither the subject of the Sept. 27 bra trick nor his accomplice knew what was going to happen.
FitzGerald also noted he's been on the board 11 years and his term is almost up.___
