Though it must be tempting for political consultants to turn on some of their old clients, especially the ones who don’t pay you, it’s not that frequent an occurrence. But in Hudson County, the consultant who ran Jersey City Councilman Steve Lipski’s 2004 campaign for Mayor wants to get paid, and he’s willing to say things about Lipski that he didn’t talk about during the mayoral race: “Welcome to my new website, StopSteveLipski.com. This website was created by Steve Kush. It has been designed to tell the truth about the political backstabbing, flip-flopping, non-bill paying, abatement giving, bought, bossed and owned by developers Jersey City Councilman Steve Lipski.”Though it must be tempting for political consultants to turn on some of their old clients, especially the ones who don’t pay you, it’s not that frequent an occurrence.

This is Kush’s website. Lipski you can stop blaming a 23 year old for all your problems and shove it up your ass. Learn to fight like a man and stop picking on women and 23 year olds. You’re over 40 and a councilman. Grow up, apologize for all your wrongs, resign from city council and pay your bill or I will bring you to your knees.” “While you’re at it tell everyone about the secret meeting in the campaign RV the day of the Flintkote vote. Remember the checks you were given? I do!” “If you have a problem with anything on this site I suggest you read the First Amendment. I know after you realize there is nothing you can do you will have your “muscle” call and threaten me just like earlier this year. My only advise would be don’t have the same guy that Russell beat up call me. Why is it that all your “fighters” end up on the floor?” “On any given night you can find Councilman Lipski staining his shirt in one of these bars. I know, I’ve been to some of them with him and watched the action as he stained his shirt. The first day I spent time with him was when McGreevey announced he was gay. I watched with Lipski at Laico’s as he spilled his drink and dropped a meatball out of the sandwich he was eating, right down the front of his shirt.” “On another note, someone might want to ask Mr. Lipski about the night he was drinking and driving his campaign RV. It’s true! I have a witness, the same person who knows something about a little accident with Lipski’s city issued car. Damages were paid for out of pocket and the person who knows about it was fired from Lipski’s patronage mill allegedly for poor attendance. That person now lives in Harrison with his girl friend.”
