SNL alum Piscopo may run for NJ Governor

53 year-old comedian Joe Piscopo, most known for his late 80s stint on Saturday Night Live, is considering running for Governor of New Jersey in the wake of the sex scandal that caused current NJ Governor Jim McGreevy to announce his resignation.

The actor and one-time "Saturday Night Live" star, who describes himself as a lifelong Democrat with working-class roots, said in a televised interview on Friday that "young, very concerned New Jersey citizens" suggested the idea to him.
No word yet on whether or not Piscopo will actually enter the 2005 primary.

As Piscopo's sportscaster character would scream at the camera on Saturday Night Live, "STAY TUNED!"

New Jersey politics are a joke, I say as a new Jersian.

Who's HE going to appoint as homeland security director- Jim Blaluchi?
