New Jersey Politician Takes His Job Description a Bit Too Literally

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

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.

    Same idea as the bailout, just a slightly different execution.

    At least he didn’t drop his drawers…… could have been much, much worse……..then again, he is from New Jersey, which means he has to go back to New Jersey……

    At least the stench of piss was gone after a few minutes. I can only imagine how long the stench of all these bailouts will linger.

    I don’t really get it. Is this some way to say that his job description requires pissing (metaphorically) on the lowly masses?

    Maybe I have a small bladder, but how do you urinate for 60 seconds?

  7. #7 |  thomasblair | 


    Yep, you have a small bladder.

    Mr. Porter, It’s obvious you’ve never had to run to the bathroom after being stuck in Jersey traffic. I was about to go out the window.

    I guess Councilman Lipski thinks of ordinary citizens as peons.

    In fairness to Councilman Lipski, it was a crowd that was there to see a Grateful Dead tribute band. They were kinda asking for it.

    I think you people urinate too slowly or have prostate issues. If you can’t empty your bladder in under 30 seconds please see a doctor.

    And no, I’ve never been in Jersey traffic, and I hope never to be.

    How did this guy avoid getting his ass kicked? Did he pick the right (read wussy) crowd?

    Longer pisses are from ignoring your body’s signals for too long to go take a piss. And in this case it was likely worsened by The Beer Piss, which is frequently a long piss from drinking too much beer.

    The 60 second piss is a once a year thing (maybe), not a common occurrence. Have you never been piss drunk?

    I can’t wait for the sobbing apology and quick trip to Betty Ford…

    Marty, good thing you couldn’t wait:

    Councilman vows to quit alcohol after public urination bust

    “I’ve resolved not to touch alcohol again,” Lipski told reporters outside his home.”

    Mind you, he still doesn’t admit that he opened the “box of rain” on them.

    …how do you urinate for 60 seconds?

    By drinking too damn much.

  18. #18 |  MacK | 

    In many states, if convicted of urinating in public it is a sex crime, and you must register as a sex offender.
    Is NJ one of these states?

    And just what is his job description, public waste commissioner?

  19. #19 |  aland | 

    Oh, and btw, he’s a Democrat. Not that I think it matters, but it always cracks me up when they leave that detail out of stories.

    Way to work in Box of Rain, mojotron.

    Anybody else thinking about Adam Sandler’s Longest Pee sketch?

    Sad thing is, this guy will probably be re-elected.

    #20 Unfortunately, NJ (as well as the rest of us) are quite used to being pissed on by our elected officials. Which is why I am in favor of putting a noose on every lamp post visible from any legislature building. And using them.

  22. #22 |  Boyd Durkin | 

    Incumbent. Will get re-elected.

    #6 60 seconds is a long piss and usually only appears in combination with being so drunk you don’t realize pissing on other peopel is a bad idea.

    #9 Aren’t you missing a “Hey-yo!” on the end of that?

    Meh. It’s been done.
