NEW YORK -- A candidate who ran for New York governor because "the rent is too damn high" says he's being evicted from his rent-controlled Manhattan apartment because his landlord wants to charge a new tenant more.

Jimmy McMillan tells the New York Post he pays $872 for the rent-controlled East Village apartment.

He says the landlord wants him out because "my rent is too damn low."
