Rumor: Corzine interested in Bank of America job

The rumor in financial circles is that Gov. Jon Corzine could wind up as CEO of Bank of America. Business Week has mentioned it, as did Charlie Gasperino on CNBC today. There is no confirmation or denial from the governor's staff. Bank of America received $45 billion in federal bailout money this year.

Update: Corzine denied that he has met with Bank of America officials regarding their CEO post, and said he's not sure if he'll go back to Wall Street.

"This meeting is entirely off the record. Until somebody leaks it."
