Rent Is Too Damn High Party
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Rent Is Too Damn High Party is a local New York City political party that has presented mayoral candidates in 2005 and 2009. Both times, Jimmy McMillan was the mayoral candidate. In 2005, he received over 4000 votes.

For the 2009 campaign, the word "damn" was removed from the official ballot on account of the name being 17 letters, two more than legally permissible under state board of elections guidelines. In 2009, Salim Ejaz ran for the party for the position of City Comptroller, without an endorsement from McMillan.

The word "damn" was restored to the party name in 2010 by shortening "too" to "2"; McMillan is running for governor on the line, while Joseph Huff is running for the U.S. Senate seat held by Kirsten Gillibrand.
