Rent Is Too Damn High Candidate EvictedRent Is Too Damn High Candidate Evicted, Jimmy McMillan, an eccentric resident of the City of New York who ran for governor of New York in 2010, as the candidate of income is Too Damn High Party, facing eviction from their low rent apartment in the East Village.

McMillan and pay 872.96 for a rent-controlled ground floor apartment on St. Marks Place in the East Village who moved in late 1970, when income was around 275 and the New York Post reports.

The building’s owner, Lisco Holdings, said in court papers that McMillan has violated the contract because they actually live there. “This is a case in which the owner claims that it is the tenant’s primary residence,” said Robert Goldstein, a lawyer representing the company that owns the building.

In an interview last fall, McMillan told the New York Times that he lived in an apartment on Nostrand Avenue in Flatbush section of Brooklyn, rent-free in exchange for maintenance work in the building. However, according to the New York Post, McMillan now insists that only uses the Brooklyn apartment in her office, which is also home to rent is Too Damn High Party.

McMillan, who drew attention in the 2010 race for governor surround his mustache and goatee, his black glove and comments on the election debates crazy enough to his party’s platform of reducing rents, told Reuters the demands of the owners were “baseless.” He said the owner wants him out because he wants to raise the rent. McMillan also said he asked his lawyer to file a counterclaim for 70,000.

“This is not me,” McMillan said the local East Village, a blog published by the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at the University of New York and the New York Times. “This is what we called all the owners make people – an increase of rent for no reason [and] with his lawyers to force him out. But I can be intimidating. The burden of proof is on them. They to prove I do not live there and I cannot do that. I’m here to make sure that people know their rights. ”

If McMillan is forced out of their rent-controlled apartment, New York rental law gives the owner the right to increase the monthly fee to rent on the market can bear, that is, the next person who moves in place is almost certain that pays the rent is too damn high.
