DEMOCRACY NOW:The Beleaguered Tenants of "Kushnerville": Jared Kushner Accused of Being A "Slumlord"



FIRST PUBLISHED JUNE 2017
https://democracynow.org - "The Beleaguered Tenants of ‘Kushnerville.’" That’s the headline of a recent piece in ProPublica about the real estate dealings of Trump’s son-in-law and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner. The piece looks at how Kushner’s former company Kushner Companies has acted as a "neglectful and litigious" landlord of low-income housing units in Baltimore. ProPublica reporter Alec MacGillis chronicles how Kushner Companies hounded low-income tenants with a barrage of lawsuits, eviction notices and late fees—even when the tenants were in the right. Tenants also described terrible maintenance practices, which created nearly unlivable conditions for some families.
