"Rent Is Too Damn High" Candidate Faces Eviction

New York City ~ (New York Post) ~ When Jimmy McMillan, future presidential candidate, claims that “The Rent Is Too Damn High” he must really mean it.  In fact, McMillan is on the verge of being evicted from his New York City abode.

McMillan claims that he pays $872.96 for his rent controlled ground floor apartment on St. Marks place in the village.  In the 1970’s, when McMillan moved in, the rent was $275.  McMillan states, “I’ve been here since 1977, and they want more money!  It’s all about ‘My Rent Is Too Damn Low.’”

McMillan’s neighborhood has skyrocketed in value since the village became hip and the mustached politician is not happy.  McMillan has advised his lawyer to file a $70,000 counter claim against the property’s landlord vowing, “Maybe the landlord doesn’t know, but he can’t bulldog me because I know the law.”

The apartment’s owner claims that McMillan violated the terms of his lease because he does not live in the apartment but rather in Brooklyn.

The lawyer representing the landlord stated, “This is a case where the landlord alleges that it’s not the tenant’s primary residence.”

Last year McMillan himself admitted that he lives rent-free at an apartment in Brooklyn on Nostrand Avenue, paying his rent by maintaining the property.  Now McMillan claims that he still lives in the village, where he maintains an office and the headquarters of The Rent Is Too Damn High Party.

Hopefully for McMillan’s sake his party’s headquarters isn’t forced to move which would negatively impact his 2012 presidential campaign.

One has to imagine how McMillan feels about the rent on The White House, which he will attempt to inhabit.
