Three New Yorkers Are Members Of The Rent Is 2 Damn High Party

You’ve read about last night’s seven-candidate New York gubernatorial debate, in which Jimmy McMillan, leader of the Rent Is 2 Damn High Party, stole the show with his one-liners, remarkable facial hair and black gloves.

Just how many party members does he lead? Three, according to Board of Elections records: himself, in Brooklyn; and one member each in upstate Oneida and Tioga counties.The median monthly rental rate in Oneida County was $478 in 2008; in Tioga County, it was $514.

MacMillan has also run for New York City mayor and is a former postal worker. You can find his web site (make sure you turn the sound on) here.
