The rent has actually become too damn high for Jimmy McMillan and his landlord is giving him the heave-ho.
McMillan, who is most known for running for multiple city-wide offices under the “Rent is too damn high” party, has been served an eviction notice by the landlord of his Manhattan apartment over a legal dispute.
He has reportedly been in a battle with his landlord, because the owner believes that his primary residence is not the East Village apartment he pays rent in, saying that the former fringe mayoral candidate lives in Brooklyn.
McMillan is trying to fight the eviction by filing a suit against the landlord claiming that they never gave him a key that he needed to enter the apartment, so he had to make one himself.
“They never gave me a damn key,” he told the Daily News.
Although this may not specifically be about rent, it would be too damn ironic if McMillan was kicked out of his apartment.
