New York’s ‘Rent Too Damn High’ candidate faces eviction

NEW YORK — A candidate who ran for New York governor because "the rent is too damn high" says he’s being evicted from his rent-controlled Manhattan apartment because his landlord wants to charge a new tenant more.

Jimmy McMillan tells the New York Post he pays $872 for the rent-controlled East Village apartment.

He says the landlord wants him out because "my rent is too damn low."

McMillan, now planning a run for president, says he’s told his lawyer to file a counter claim for $70,000. The case is pending in Housing Court.

Building owner Lisco Holdings said in court papers that McMillan violated his lease because the apartment is not his primary residence as required by rent-controlled rules. It says he lives in Brooklyn.

McMillan says that address is his office.
