EXCLUSIVE: Jimmy McMillan of 'The Rent Is Too Damn High' receives eviction notice
McMillan has been slapped with an eviction notice ordering him out of his $872-a-month rent stabilized East Village apartment. The 68-year-old has been embroiled in a legal battle with the landlord, who claimed the one-bedroom flat on St. Marks Place wasn’t McMillan’s primary residence, and that he actually lives in Brooklyn.
The too-damn-high rent is now the least of Jimmy McMillan’s problems.

The flamboyant gubernatorial candidate has been slapped with an eviction notice ordering him out of his $872-a-month rent stabilized East Village apartment.

McMillan, founder of the fringe political party called The Rent Is Too Damn High, has filed suit in Brooklyn Federal Court seeking to stave off the eviction, which is scheduled to be carried out by a city marshal Feb. 5. Acting as his own lawyer, he is also demanding $1.3 million in monetary damages.

The 68-year-old Vietnam War veteran has been embroiled in a legal battle with the landlord, who claimed the one-bedroom flat on St. Marks Place wasn’t McMillan’s primary residence, and that he actually lives in Brooklyn.

“They don't have the authority to evict me,” McMillan told the Daily News on Monday .

Doh!

That what you get for bitching about a rent controlled apartment in NY. It's the holy grail of housing there and he pissed it away by being an ass. Suspect
