 Vote for the "Rent is too damn high" Party
NYC Elections are coming up and of course everyone is really excited.
I was reading our voter's guide this morning. Bernard Goetz is running for public advocate again. He's for ideas like power naps for city workers and vegetarian meals in city facilities. But the most interesting candidate has to be Jimmy McMillian who is running on for the "Rent is Too Damn High" party. Be sure to read is answers to the 3 questions. And check out his website to hear his theme song. He has "apologized" for his bad grammar but not for his position that the Orthodox Jewish community running everyone out of the city for refusing to rent to non-Orthodox New Yorkers.
