Born to Rum: Bruce Springsteen, Phony "Tribune of the Workin' Man," Busted for DWI In November, But That Doesn't Stop Him From Getting a Big Paycheck from a Corporation


Only a Democrat could get a DUI in Nov. then land an endorsement deal with a car company and have a huge Super Bowl Ad of them driving in February. Democrat privilege is insane. I’m just surprised Springsteen didn't get an endorsement and commercial for an alcohol brand too.

Not cancelled!

Bruce Springsteen is in the middle of a DWI case after he was busted in his home state ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Boss was arrested on November 14 at Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook, NJ. Springsteen was cited for DWI, reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area. He'll have a court appearance coming in the next few weeks.

He looks like that other decrepit schifoso, Robert DeNiro.

He looks sickly.

I predict Bruce Springsteen's next record to be released will be his death certificate. It will be the first record of his I've been eagerly anticipating in quite a while.

Headline thanks to "Frasier Crane," though I doubt that's his real name.

Update: Remember, this Tribune of the Workin' Man took advantage of a tax boondoggle to reduce the property taxes by 98% on all of his land except his actual house, by merely producing $500 worth of "farm goods" per year.

The tax man may be coming for Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi and other wealthy New Jersey residents who for years have qualified for sizable tax breaks on their land because of a decades-old state law aimed at helping farmers. The law, which was passed in 1964, gave farmers in the state a 98 percent tax exemption on their non-residential property if they produced more than $500 in revenue on 5 acres or more. The revised law nudges that minimum to $1,000 in order to get the same break.

While it certainly helps oft-struggling family farms and larger operations, a 2010 investigation by the Asbury Park Press uncovered how wealthy residents who made their fortunes in business, music and politics have also benefited from the law. Former Gov. Christie Whitman paid $1,694 on 232 acres; Bon Jovi paid $104 on 7 acres; E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg shelled out $122 on 34 acres; and Springsteen paid $4,600 on 200 acres.

Springsteen super fan Gov. Chris Christie signed the updated law in 2013.

In order to have their respective lands fall under the 1964 law, Weinberg sells wood, Whitman raises sheep, Bon Jovi raises honeybees and Springsteen leases his land to an organic farmer.

More: Brucie is a real man.
