Jimmy McMillan was on the ballot for Governor of New York in November 2010, and official returns show he polled 41,131 votes. His ballot label was “Rent is 2 Damn High.” He has just filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, alleging that he really received at least 50,000 votes, but that the vote count was not honest. See this story.
Although McMillan lives in New York city, the official tally shows that he only got 12,858 votes in New York city, but 28,273 votes in upstate New York. If he had been credited with at least 50,000 votes, his party would now be ballot-qualified.
