I thought the idea of Jimmy as a candidate was pretty funny at first, especially with his weird beard and opening lines such as "as a karate master....". But what is more disturbing is that Jimmy blames the high rent on "the Jews" and is well-known for his anti-Semitic rhetoric over the past 15 years. Also, he was once arrested for climbing the Brooklyn Bridge brandishing a knife. Not the most mentally stable political candidate. But, in this election season of witches and Nazis, not too unbelievable either.
But beyond all that, the reality is that his party does not really exist, except in his own head. It is basically a website that is hard to figure out, other than the fact that you can order t-shirts with the "party's" name. And even though I agree with the sentiment (as do most New Yorkers), voting for him will lower the rent in the same way voting for anyone will increase jobs.
