Jersey City councilman makes it rain in Washington

Hopefully Jersey City Councilman Steve Lipski treats his constituents better than he treats Washington, DC concert goers.

Lipski was arrested Friday night at a Washington nightclub after he allegedly urinated on a crowd during a concert by a Grateful Dead tribute band, the Daily News reports.

Apparently, this wasn’t the first run-in Lipski has had with the 9:30 Club's staff, who described Lispki to the paper as never having peed on anyone before Friday, but of typically being “really belligerent and drunk.”

Lipski, who ran for mayor in 2004, is also the Executive Director/School Administrator/CEO of CREATE Charter School.

While Jersey City residents have seen their fair share of corrupt officials carted off over the years, Lipski adds to a growing list of officials who have been charged with embarrassing but non-corruption related offenses.

In 2006, Mayor Jerramiah Healy was arrested for disorderly conduct in Bradley Beach. Earlier this year, Deputy Mayor Kabili Tayari was charged with failing to return a rental car.

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Governor Christie ripped President Obama this summer for failing to carve out some time during a Texas fundraising swing to visit the Mexican border, where the unprecedented flood of immigrant children from Central America had reached a crisis point. ...Yet Christie is not squeezing in a tour of the troubled border during his own three-day trade and diplomatic mission to Mexico, which is set to begin on Wednesday. The governor is planning a series of meetings with Mexican officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto and the finance and energy ministers." - columnist Charles Stile
