InfoJames "Jim" Bunn (b. December 12, 1956) is an American politician from Oregon.

Bunn was born in McMinnville and graduated from Dayton High School. He earned a bachelor's degree from Northwestern Nazarene College in 1979. Bunn worked in agribusiness, and from 1987 until his election to Congress, served in the Oregon National Guard.

Bunn, a Republican, was a member of the Oregon State Senate from 1987 to 1995, where he served as Republican whip from 1990 to 1995. In 1994, he was elected to the United States House of Representatives, representing Oregon's 5th congressional district.

During his one term in the House from 1995 to 1997, Bunn divorced his wife and married an aide, Sonja Skurdal, whom he made his chief of staff.[1] In the 1996 election, this scandal contributed to his loss to Democrat Darlene Hooley.

After leaving Congress, Bunn became a prison guard at the Yamhill County jail.

Bunn's family includes other notable public figures, such as his brother Stan Bunn, a former Oregon Superintendent of Public Instruction.
