Michael Jackson's former rabbi, Shmuley Boteach, has launched a bid for a U.S. congressional seat. The King of Pop's longtime pal, who resides in New Jersey, tells the New York Post, "Michael lost his values... The problems we face as a nation are the erosion of values. We need a spiritual revival. It's highly unorthodox - no pun intended - for a rabbi to run for Congress. But who else is to bring values to the public arena?"
