A Rhode Island city official is now out of a job, after she pulled a sneaky scam.

Sue Stenhouse had a man pose as an elderly woman for a photo op at a press conference.

He had lipstick, earrings, and a wig. He even went to a hair salon to help with his disguise.

"Dave usually drives the senior citizens into the salon, so he says to me, ‘Elaine do you have a wig that I could borrow?  I have to get dressed as a senior,’" stylist Elaine Mancuso said. "He said to me, ‘I need to have grey hair, curly.’"

The scam cost Stenhouse her job, although the city said she officially resigned.
