Richard Lipsky has lost yet another client.

Lipsky had been lobbying for them against Walmart coming to New York City.

“The contract was terminated last night immediately after the news broke,” said RWDSU spokesman Dan Morris.

Lipsky was also jettisoned by the Committee to Save New York, which is a coalition of business groups supporting Gov. Cuomo’s fiscal agenda.

Oddly, online records for the Public Integrity Commission don't list either group as a client of Lipsky. PIC spokesman Walter Ayres could not say why or whether the commission is reviewing Lipsky's filings.
