An Ohio mayor gave five school board members an ultimatum over what he said amounted to child pornography in course material, telling them to resign or be arrested.

Course work distributed in the Hudson City School District reportedly included writing prompts from a book titled 642 Things to Write About. One asked students to “write a sex scene you wouldn’t show your mom,” and another told students to “rewrite the sex scene from above into one that you’d let your mom read,” parents told the Akron Beacon Journal.

“It has come to my attention that your educators are distributing essentially what is child pornography in the classroom,” Hudson Mayor Craig Shubert told the Hudson Board of Education Monday. “I’ve spoken to a judge this evening.

Shubert’s ultimatum was met by cheers and a round of applause from the meeting audience.
