NEW YORK- The man who made the “rent is too damn high” a national catchphrase, is now living up to his name.

Jimmy McMillan,who made news by running for governor of New York state in 2010, is fighting eviction from his low rent Greenwich Village apartment.

The New York Post reports:

Jimmy McMillan says he pays $872.96 for a rent-controlled ground-floor apartment on St. Marks Place in the East Village — which he’s had since the late-1970s, when the rent was around $275.

But the man who founded the tenants-rights party says his landlords are giving him the boot so they can pull in way more dough.

“I’ve been here since 1977, and they want more money!” McMillan says. “It’s about ‘My Rent is Too Damn Low.’ “
