    Man Dressing as Woman Leads to Resignation of City Employee
    WJAR

    An unusual publicity stunt has led to the resignation of a city employee in Cranston, Rhode Island.

    Sue Stenhouse, the executive director of the Senior Enrichment Center, is out of a job following an incident at a press conference involving a male bus driver dressed up as an elderly woman.

    Sources tell necn affiliate WJAR that the bus driver for the senior center masqueraded as a woman to make it look good for the media.

    The man was standing next to Stenhouse and Mayor Allan Fung at the Jan. 5 event. The press conference was held to announce a program in which students would shovel snow for senior citizens.

    Fung's office tells WJAR that Stenhouse has resigned.
