Senator Bon Jovi?

Can a publicist place a story and then deny the contents? Sure they can. Page6 did a “that’s why” today concerning rumors of a run for office by Jon Bon Jovi in his native New Jersey. The rocker’s new uberflack, the politically connected Ken Sunshine denied the rumor, stating “his day job is going too well.” Bon Jovi made political news years ago by raising tons of money for Al Gore.

There’s still time for him to fill Frank Lautenberg’s Senate seat in ’08. As fans of wild and woolly Jersey politics might remember, the retired senior became the junior Senator in 02′ when Bob “Torchy” Torricelli was nailed for corruption.

Other politically connected and vocal Jersey celebrities available for office include James Gandolfini, Stephen Colbert, Kevin Smith, Lauren Hill, and of course The Boss Bruce Springsteen.
