MTA Chairman Joe Lhota was caught on a hot mic dropping an F-bomb during a board meeting on Wednesday.
“As if I don’t have enough f–king problems,” he muttered after several board members in a row brought up the suggestion of creating working groups to try to solve the MTA’s growing portfolio of issues.
“I think it would be wise for us to consider creating a working group to spend time looking at these issues and come up with macro solutions to these things rather than tweaks or one offs when things get really really bad,” board member Lawrence Schwartz said before Lhota made the comment.
Board members Scott Rechler and Charles Moerdler then both latched onto that idea and took it even further.
“May I ask that there be a separate working group on paratransit and accessibility not just in the subway system, but throughout the system as a whole,” said Moerdler.
Then Lhota called the meeting into executive session and made the comment just as he was rising out of his seat to go into the back room.
Lhota was nonplussed about getting caught cussing on the mic, said MTA officials.
“I asked Joe Lhota if he said that, and he shrugged his shoulder and said ‘that sounds like me’,” said agency spokesman Jon Weinstein.
