wtf he read the terms of his lease. to get the lower rent the address must be his primary residence not his campaign office.there fore the property owner should get the higher rent.

Makes perfect sense for this guy to be involved...saw him on 'World's Dumbest' TV.

If you want to keep playing the game, you have to KNOW the rules AND abide by them.

I don't understand what makes some ppl so arrogant and 'entitled'. Could it be they think they are owed reparations b/c their ancestors were slaves?

He is entertaining. I heard him on XM radio a couple of years on the Sean Hannity Show.

"Jimmy McMillan tells the New York Post he pays $872 for the rent".

WHERE else in NY can anyone get an apt for this little?

The landlord has a right to profit from her investment. If McMillan wants to say that his office is his primary residence then he should move there and quit whining. Besides, he will have to reveal a lot more information than that if he expects to run for public office.

P.S. What is with that mask of hair all over his face and sticking out of the sides of his chin? It makes him look like a billy goat, NOT a presidential candidate.

That's what they said about Lincoln, Rutherford B Hayes, and Barack Obama.

No, wait, they said Obama's lack of experience made him not look like a presidential candidate.

The rent is not "too high". His income is just "too low"!

Buffoons are often entertaining.

The idea that he would get on Hannity says a lot about the audience for that jingoistic pablum.

I find him entertaining,it's fun to listen even if there some flaws in his statements.I would vote for him to most public office positions.He would not be worse than anyone anywhere we have now.Plus I like his weird beard and hair cut.

Maybe he should offer to be the building's janitor,then perhaps the landlord can offer him a lower rent.
