Tenants in over a dozen Baltimore-area rental complexes complain about a property owner who they say leaves their homes in disrepair, humiliates late-paying renters and often sues them when they try to move out. Few of them know who their landlord is...

I'm glad this story is getting picked up in more different publications--slumlords are destructive to communities and cities. In CA it can become a felony and tenants can do needed repairs, if left undone, and deduct it from the rent. If the landlord tries to evict, it becomes retaliation by law enforced by law enforcement. Jared would already have served time if he'd tried those immoral acts here. Thanks Judy

Among the many shocking parts of this story, one of the things that stood out is the fact that this terrible housing owned by Kushner is the only housing available to the poor in Baltimore. They don't have other public housing, if I understood the article correctly. There is a desperate need for public housing in this country, but it's light years away with Trump and Carson!

Examples:

That February, Lennettea filed a written court notice explaining that her mother, who was dying of pancreatic cancer, was “in terminal hospice care and is not eligible to work.” She added by way of supporting evidence a letter from the hospice provider to Joan Beverly’s bank, explaining her and her husband’s late mortgage payments on their home: “There has been added financial stress because Mrs. Beverly is very ill at this time.” But JK2 Westminster persisted in seeking a hearing on the suit. In March, a district court judge found in favor of the company — a total judgment against Joan of more than $5,500.

Joan died two weeks later. Her husband, Tyrone Beverly, a retired longshoreman, requested that the judgment against his deceased wife be removed but was denied. The case remains open in the court database. Tyrone, who was married to Joan for 32 years, told me that he had assumed the judgment had been dismissed and was unaware that it was still listed as awaiting payment. “They just didn’t treat us fair,” he said.

And.....The garnishing started that month. Warren was in the midst of leaving her job, but JK2 Westminster garnished her bank account too. After her account was zeroed out, a loss of about $900, she borrowed money from her mother to buy food for her children and pay her bills. That February — five years after she left Cove Village — Warren returned to court, this time with the housing form in hand, asking the judge to halt garnishment. “I am a single mom of three and my bank account was wiped clean by the plaintiff,” she pleaded in another handwritten request. “I cannot take care of my kids when they snatch all of my money out of my account.

The whole article is one of nightmares........is no wonder no one can get ahead; these Elites are always busy making sure life becomes harder and harder and worse.

I'm glad people are seeing this article. It's rather long, but well worth reading. If a person has never been at this level of poverty, there's no way of understanding what really is involved. The examples given point out the disrespect and lack of compassion for those less fortunate that Kushner and many other elites exhibit. I don't know what people are going to do in this country, other than become homeless and end up at shelters. People are too often unable to make a decent living nowadays. Wages have been fairly stagnant for decades. People like Kushner just figure out how to fleece these people for what little they have.

News like this needs to be not only circulated all over the Internet - which is why we need net neutrality - but shouted from the mountaintop. The lawsuit against Warren was unjust and unfair, and only an evil heart would feel against her. Everything wrong with Kushnerville and complexes like it can be summed up in one word: greed.

Here is another example of the outrageous greed of the Trump family. Kushner fits in perfectly with this outfit.
