Mole’s Jim running for NJ state senate.
Along with other reality TV contestants who are now seeking public office (including The Real World Boston’s Sean Duffy and Big Brother’s Will Mega is The Mole’s Jim Morrison, who is running for New Jersey state senate. Besides running a t-shirt company with his boyfriend, Jim is also a partner in a law firm and a helicopter pilot, which is how he was identified on the show. He faces opposition from an incumbent who’s been in office since 1991—and from some in his own party. After learning about his “prettiest penis” contest wins in the mid ’90s, the state Democratic party chair asked him to step down. He said no, and tells The Advocate, “If the [penis] contest was meant to embarrass me, the opposite occurred, because it’s given me a platform to be totally honest. Because if I’m totally honest, how much can they ask me about it? Then we just move on, and I get to talk about every other issue that I want to talk about.”
