Jimmy McMillan, who came to fame for declaring the rent “too damn high,” stopped by Davenport today for lunch.

McMillan was on campus to shoot a segment of a new web series with Michal Knowles ’12. The series, a weekly political show titled “Too Damn Live with Michael Knowles and Jimmy McMillan,” will debut on Chattrspace.com next Thursday at 8 p.m., Knowles said. Knowles brought McMillan to Davenport for an “impromptu, hour-long open lunch” with a handful of lucky Elis.

McMillan enjoyed the fare in Davenport, Knowles said, calling it “some damn good food.”
