Washington Pa. Pol Makes ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ Not in a Good Way (With Video)


It’s been a rough week for Washington City Councilman Matt Staniszewski. His email test of the City’s transit alert system, reading “Alert: This is a test. Bryan is gay,” has gone viral.

Staniszewski KimmelThe Mayor of Washington reprimanded Staniszewski, but the Councilman insisted he was using the word gay as in happy.

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel didn’t buy it.

“The best part is, when he was confronted about by the Mayor, he claimed he meant his friend Bryan was happy. Which is a great excuse… if you’re in the fourth grade.”

“He sounds like a real dumbbell. And by that I mean he sounds like someone you could use for strength training.”
