The Star Ledger is reporting that Middletown resident Jon Bon Jovi performed three songs at a fund raiser in Newark last night, raising $2 million for the Corzine re-election campaign.
The Ledger says that Bon Jovi did not charge for the performance. That would be a "in-kind" contribution, i.e. providing goods or services instead of cash.
New Jersey election law limits individual contributions to gubernatorial campaigns to $3400.
It could be that the Corzine campaign gave the Star Ledger bad information. Save Jersey's Matt Rooney reports that Corzine's campaign paid the bee farming crooner's company almost $20,000 last month for fundraising entertainment.
