New Jersey Politician Takes His Job Description a Bit Too Literally

|

Just to play devil's advocate, I'm not sure how this is any worse than the bank bailout.

One of the victims who Jersey City Councilman Steve Lipski allegedly urinated on last Friday night at a Washington D.C. nightclub said last night he initially thought someone had spilled beer down his leg.

But when he looked up to the balcony at Nightclub 9:30, where a Grateful Dead tribute band was performing, Joe, a 22-year-old University of Utah student — who only wanted to be identified by his first name — said he saw Lipski "grinning and urinating."

"He (Lipski) kind of had this grin on his face, and you could see his manhood in his hand," Joe said, who estimates 30 people on the dance floor were within range of a "long arc and stream of urine coming out into the crowd."

As the smell of urine hung in the air, a couple of people "ran off screaming" when they realized what was happening, Joe said.

The display went on for a "solid minute," Joe said.

  1. Just like a goverment official, pissing on the little people below him while grinning. but serouisly, a 1:00 long pee, that man had to really go!, LOL

    Look at his picture. What a douchbag. Check out this quote

    “We’ve dealt with this man before,” the source added. “He’s never peed on anybody, but he gets really belligerent and drunk.”

    I am not a lover of cops, but there is a time and a place for police brutality or at the very least turning away while some one he peed on beats the living shit out of him.

  3. I don’t why they complained. It’s sterile, right?

    The display went on for a “solid minute,” Joe said.

    Pfft. I’ve pissed so long I got bored. A minute is nothing.

  4. If past NJ experience holds up, they will next elect him mayor.

  5. Deadheads must be the only people in the world that wouldn’t immediately pound someone who did something like that.

    Hell, I bet you could beat up at a Belle and Sebastian show for doing that.

  6. “Hell, I bet you could beat up at a Belle and Sebastian show for doing that.”

    Are you kidding me, the crowd of angry gay guys at a Clay Akin show would have beaten this clown to a pulp. Deadheads really are mellow.

  7. I am the lizard king and I can do anything!!!

  8. Deadheads really are mellow.

    Years of LSD, Mushrooms, and Marijuana will do that to you. Not to mention all the Peace Love and Hippy bullshit.

    This story is hilarious. A politician takes a solid minute long piss off of a balcony and a Grateful Dead tribute concert, it doesn’t get any better than that.

  9. I’m way more afraid of a group of angry gay guys than I would be of rampaging B&S fans. Gay guys work out. Also, the B&S fans’ thick-framed glasses would fall off as soon as they attempted to assault you, giving you a chance to make your escape.

    Not that I am planning anything, mind you..

  10. I wonder what Lipski’s party affiliation is.

  11. Long as I remember
    The rain been comin’ down.
    Clouds of myst’ry pourin’
    Confusion on the ground.
    Good men through the ages,
    Tryin’ to find the sun;
    And I wonder, Still I wonder,
    Who’ll stop the rain.
    […]

  12. It’s OK that he pissed on everybody because it was before 10:00 p.m.

  13. I wonder what Lipski’s party affiliation is.

    He’s a Democrat.

  14. I’m way more afraid of a group of angry gay guys than I would be of rampaging B&S fans.

    Hell yeah. Especially if you just peed on their shoes.

  15. This is so hilarious. What would compel someone to do this if they’re in such a public office?

    And John’s right, he does look like a douche bag

  16. He’s going to have a tough re-election bid. I heard his opponent is R. Kelly.

  17. Just as long as they make him register as a sex offender, I’m satisfied.

  18. Well, he definitely doesn’t suffer from “stage fright.”

  19. I get exhausted and frustrated at always being pissed off by the government. It’s refreshing to remember that I at least haven’t yet been “pissed on” by them!

  20. What I don’t understand is why every mainstream news source doesn’t lead with this.

    Don’t they defend their incompetence by saying they need to focus on attention-grabbing stories?

  21. Is Nightclub 9:30 the same as the 9:30 Club?

    heh heh. “mainstream”

  23. Is Nightclub 9:30 the same as the 9:30 Club?

    Yes. The old one was by Ford’s Theater. In 96 they moved up to the NE side. I forget the address.

  24. His “manhood”?! Yeah, I’m sure that’s what he really said.

  25. rhywun,

    He actually said “dirty pickle” but the paper wouldn’t print it.

  26. Well, he’s a U of U student, so maybe he’s a Mormon. If he’s a Mormon, he may very well have said something as archaic as that… You get some weird verbal tics out in Utah.

  27. I wonder what Lipski’s party affiliation is.

    He’s a Democrat.

    I don’t want to put words in J sub D’s mouth, but I believe he was offering a subtle observation that the “D” was noticably omitted by the author.

  28. the next morning

    Sir, you pissed on the voters last night.
    Yeah, yeah. They’re always pissed off about something.
    No, you pissed ON them.
    No shit?
    Not this time, sir.

  29. Too bad it wasn’t Obama who did this. Obama’s pee cures cancer and all known diseases.

  30. Gary Miller is suing for copyright infringement.

  31. “Not this time, sir.”

    LMFAO!!! (Scape FTW)

    “The party of the common man,” my ass. “Piss on the serfs” is more like it (and more consistent with my own observation of the donkey party, as well). But let’s give Lipski some props: Here, at last, is an honest politician. THAT should be the front-page headline in the main-“stream” media.

  33. LMFAO!!! (Scape FTW)

    Thanks. I doo what I can.

  34. I’m wondering what a University of Utah student is doing in DC in the middle of the semester. That’s a long way to go for a Dead cover band performance.

  35. I’m surprised four or five of the golden shower recipients didn’t run upstairs to the balcony, beat the hell out of the guy, and throw him over. That would have been my first reaction after seeing the bastard.

  36. Better to be pissed off than pissed on.

  37. Well, the next time that I attend a Belle & Sebastian concert at the 9:30 Club, I’ll make sure to stand far away from the balcony (and clean my shoes when I get home).

    However, folks in DC are used to dealing with public excrement on a daily basis. It’s the Belt way.

  38. And in a surprise move, his Republican challenger for City Council dropped a hot steamer in the middle of the dance floor.

    Again, the accommodating dead heads did not attack, but one near the pile was heard to say, “Duuuuuuude, not cool.” Followed a short-time later by “I want whatever he is on.”
