- On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that a property management firm tied to Jared Kushner — who helped lead the White House pandemic response — is set to resume evictions caused by the pandemic as protections expire.
- “Westminster Management, an apartment company owned in part by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, has submitted hundreds of eviction filings in court against tenants with past due rent during the pandemic, according to interviews with more than a dozen tenants and a review of hundreds of the company’s filings,” reported Jonathan O’Connell, Aaron Gregg, and Anu Narayanswamy.
- “Many of the Westminster tenants facing eviction live on low or middle incomes in modest apartments in the Baltimore area, according to tenants. Some of them told The Washington Post they fell behind on rent after losing jobs or wages due to the pandemic.”
