A Mexican politician has turned red in the face after he was arrested while using the toilet while on a Zoom conversation with colleagues.
Federico Döring, PAN deputy for Mexico City’s Congress, was caught sitting on the toilet and wiping himself, in the middle of a congressional session.
The embarrassing yet hilarious incident took place in a virtual session on November 19 during a session of the United Commissions on Regulations, Studies and Parliamentary Practices and Administration and Procurement of Justice of the Capital Congress.
In the clip, Mr. Döring can be seen looking at the camera with a mask on before he lays his phone on the floor, when his colleagues vote in the meeting.
He apparently forgets to turn off the camera and then continues to collect some toilet paper, get up and clean himself with the paper in front of his colleagues.

The local deputy then quickly picks up his phone after realizing his technical error and leaves the Zoom call.
Although the event lasted only a few seconds, the video has since gone viral.
Also in Mexico, a politician last year released a statement stating that she was not ashamed of her body after being caught when she accidentally changed her mind at a Zoom meeting.
Mexican Senator Martha Lucia Micher was on a video call with members of the National Regeneration Movement’s political party, the Bank of Mexico and journalists in May last year.
As they discussed the impact of the pandemic on the country, the 66-year-old politician began taking off her clothes.

Micher did not realize that her webcam was still running, which caused screenshots of the accident to circulate on social media.
The senator apologized for the accident but was clear that she had nothing to be ashamed of.
She said: “I am Malu Micher, and I am not ashamed to have shown part of my intimacy by chance, because it is precisely the notion that a woman is” only her body “that has allowed and fueled the objectification of women against which I’ve always struggled.
I am a 66-year-old woman who has breastfed four children, three of whom are now professional and responsible men, and I feel proud of my body for nourishing them.
“I am a woman who has fought for the left for almost 40 years and who has had various public roles in my burning commitment to the defense of human rights, I am a woman who is not ashamed of her body, I love it and I take care of the.”

Many other colleagues and politicians also retweeted her letter and posted on social media to show their support for the senator.
In April this year, a Canadian MP was forced to apologize after entering a parliamentary video call completely naked.
In screenshots from the Zoom meeting, William Amos was seen holding a mobile phone in front of his private parts while standing next to Canadian and Quebec flags.
He later took over Twitter to apologize after the grips from the private session on Wednesday were leaked to social media.
