Jimmy McMillan, rent fighter, action figure, music scribe and all-around mustachionado, has sold his franchise beard and slogan to BidHere, an online auction site.

"The Rent is Too Damn High movement, the people I'm here to represent, can't afford to pay full price for digital cameras!" he yells at the camera, while shaking his trademark black-gloved fists.

McMillan was reportedly paid $10,000 for the spot. The New York Times' City Room blog writes:

It was not immediately clear whether such a contribution would run afoul of campaign finance laws, or whether the federal authorities would care in this case.
