'Rent Is Too Damn High' Guy

Facing Eviction

11/24/2011 6:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rent Is Too Damn High Guy Jimmy McMillan
Jimmy McMillan
-- the infamous founder of the "Rent Is Too Damn High" party -- could soon lose his rent-controlled Manhattan apartment ... this according to a NYC judge.

It's all over a dispute with McMillan's landlord, who is now demanding to see financial documents to prove Jimmy's still actually living in the apartment -- because if he's not, it's a big problem.

According to the NY Post, Jimmy admitted after court ... he's temporarily living in another apartment in Brooklyn -- but only to give his son (who lives with him in Manhattan) a chance to put the charms on a lady ... if you know what we mean.

In Jimmy's words ... "I want a grandkid."

The judge has ordered Jimmy to hand over the docs ... or else.

So the rent ain't to damn high cause, it's rent controlled by the gubment.

Subleasing the apt cause you want a grandchild makes sense, yea right.

The rent WILL be to damn high once he gets booted!

He needs to get this sorted out if he hopes to have any shot of beating Obama and Romney.

The American media is diabolical. They love crazies, but folks who actually have something to say don't get exposure, typically because they'll foil the power and media elites' agenda. This guy is a nutcase... nowadays nutcases are normal and the sane are demonized.
