There's word gubernatorial Jimmy McMillan’s voter registration doesn't help his "Rent is Too Damn High" Party.

The 64-year old Vietnam vet was quick to repeat his party name over and over during the debate, but documents show he is really a registered Democrat.

While “The Rent is Too Damn High” Party will not be on a ballot, McMillan could have registered as an independent.

This hasn't stood in the way of McMillan getting his moment in the spotlight this week, after his rapid-fire responses at the seven-way debate this week, and his catchy music on his website. A YouTube clip of McMillan at the debate has already gotten more than a million hits.

He also confessed to the New York Times yesterday that he doesn't actually pay rent under a deal with his landlord to do maintenance work in his building.
