Arkansas Mayor Sexist Remark: ‘If It’s Got Tits, You Got Problems’

An Arkansas mayor has been accused of issuing a sexist remark by three city council members and the Chief of Police in the town of Maynard. City officials have asked for Mayor Gary Hart’s resignation, but, according to KAIT, they may be waiting a while.

Mayor Hart was unaware he was being recorded when speaking to Maynard Police Chief Lonnie Cline during an official meeting. AddictingInfo.org noted that Cline is required to wear a clip-on recorder while on duty, which he clearly was at the time of the meeting.

Several minutes into the recording, Hart allegedly dropped this little gem: “If it’s got tits, you got problems.” The remark was in reference to three of the town’s female city council members. “You know what I’m saying?” Hart continued. “At my house, maybe not yours, but at my house, if you got tits, you got problems.”

(No word on who the lucky lady at the Hart residence is, but sorry, girls, he’s taken.)

Of course, when confronted by the contents of the recording, the Arkansas mayor denied making the sexist remark. “No, I said if it’s got tires and wheels it’s got problems,” Hart said.

The three council members and Chief Cline disagree. You can decide for yourself by checking out the video below at around the 16:40 mark, but it’s pretty clear. (“Tits” and “tires” don’t sound that much alike, and Hart is definitely referring to women during the conversation with Cline.)
