In December 2012, Boss filed to run for president in the 2016 election under the Democratic Party.[8]

He ran for the Democratic nomination for Governor of New Jersey in 2013,[9] but was removed from the ballot after the New Jersey Democratic State Committee challenged the nominating petitions of all independent candidates seeking the Democratic nomination.[10] He subsequently filed new petitions to run for Governor in the general election and appeared on the ballot as the "NSA did 911" candidate.[11] Out of the eight candidates, Boss finished last, with 0.1% of the vote.

In 2014, Boss ran for the U.S. Senate in New Jersey as a member of the Independent Party.[12] His slogans were "NSA Whistleblower" and "NSA did 911".[12]
