Assisted-suicide guru Jack Kevorkian has tossed his political hat into the ring and is running for office. 

According to reports, he’s running in Michigan to unseat Rep. Joe Knollenberg.

Kevorkian, who recently spent time in the slammer for killing a man, will apparently run for office from his death bed and while also on parole.

Kevorkian tried to get out of prison early because of health problems, including Hepatitis C, high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries. But the request was denied, he served his full sentence and was released on parole in June. He will remain on parole in June 2009.
