A Texas Councillor learnt the hard way what happens when you don't turn your microphone off.
The Councillor stepped out for a toilet break during a recent council meeting -- but accidentally left his mic on as he used the bathroom.
Unknown to him, his lavatory visit was broadcast live to the amusement of his fellow Councillor.
Picture of one of the Councillor, Rachel Jonrowe laughing as the as sounds of the man relieving himself echo through the chamber.
Unfortunately, it seems the Councillor also forgot to wash his hands.
