A new report depicts Jared Kushner as a ruthless landlord who sues his low-income tenants until their deaths
Everyone is fully aware of Jared Kushner’s multitasking capabilities. This son-in-law of President Donald Trump wears many hats in the White House. He’s a senior adviser, the director of the Office of American Innovation and is charged with fixing peace in the Middle East. He’s also a slumlord, apparently.
Alec MacGillis, reporting for The New York Times Magazine and ProPublica, spoke with tenants of low-income housing in the Baltimore area that is managed by JK2 Westminster, the management arm of Kushner’s real estate empire.
One harrowing story — involving Joan Beverly, a probation agent who was named in a lawsuit brought by JK2 Westminster for $3,810.16 — epitomizes the way Kushner’s real estate empire has treated its tenants.
Beverly was dealing with pancreatic cancer at the time, which caused extreme financial stress because she was not able to work. In the suit, Beverly submitted evidence showing financial hardship, but JK2 Westminster persisted with its case regardless. The Baltimore County District Court eventually found in favor of Kushner’s company with a total judgment of $5,500 against Beverly.
She died two weeks later. The case is still pending in court, New York Time Magazine reported. While JK2 Westminster no longer exists as a corporate entity, the Kushner Companies is still the owner of that complex — and though he has stepped down as CEO, Jared Kushner is still connected to his family’s real estate holdings and fortunes.
