First Gen Z Congressman-Elect Denied D.C. Apartment over ‘Really Bad’ Credit

Recommended Posts

The first member of Generation Z to become a congressman-elect has reportedly been denied a Washington, DC, apartment due to “really bad” credit.

Democrat Maxwell Alejandro Frost will soon replace Rep. Val Demings (D) for her seat in Florida’s 10th U.S. Congressional District next month, but he will have some difficulty finding a place to hang his hat near Capitol Hill after a potential landlord denied him an apartment because of his credit score.

Credit scores are worthless as a good gauge, right now, because of the Coronavirus. A lot of people were severely hurt financially, through no fault of their own.

The Congressman was borrowing to pay for his campaign, but in his district people who might have otherwise given to his campaign, were unable to, again due to a pandemic.

So its a viscious cycle.

We need more poor people in the Congress, so that it reflects the reality of where we are. Hurting people are not adequately represented by the wealthy members of Congress. The wealthy have not done a good job, lately.

He claims it’s from debt incurred from running his campaign.

Those who do not adequately handle their own finances are probably not good choices to decide how to use taxpayer money.

The Florida Man was a good case in point.

From your breitbart article:

"For that primary, I quit my full time job cause I knew that to win at 25 yrs old, I’d need to be a full-time candidate. 7 days a week, 10-12 hours a day. It’s not sustainable or right but it’s what we had to do,” he said.

Frost said that candidates are often barred from giving themselves a stipend until after their campaign, meaning they earn little money unless they have an alternate source of income".

 

Not everyone can scam people out of their money like Trump, Boebert, MTG... some have to make a choice that does not affect other peopl's wallets even if it means getting bad credit.

Funny you mention Trump when the Democrats have scammed more money from people than the Republicans.    They are all scoundrels.

I think the real question here, and the one the article doesn't address, is why he has a poor credit score?  I'm sure he can get an apartment in Baltimore if DC is out.

No, but i continue to HOPE that things will get better.   I am losing hope each day though.  While all politicians are scoundrels, I would rather have those who have been able to keep their own finances in order rather than someone that wasn't responsible enough to do that.

Not to mention all the bankruptcies by your dear leader, all the financial frauds, all the loans....and you are beating up on a young guy who risked only his OWN finances and credit reputation and made it without begging for help and defrauding others.

You asked if I even read the articles I posted after I asked you what this had to do with Trump. Now you are referring me to other articles…… What do these articles you shared have to do with questioning me reading the articles I post?

Put the partisan sissy fight aside for a moment. GenZ should be something that we can all unify in opposition against.

Isn't GenZ a designation for an age group?  It isn't a political slant as far as I know.  Based on our own generation, these  would be our children or grandchildren, why would we oppose them?  Are you joking as @Likely Guy suggested? Sorry if I missed it.  Baby Boomers are notorious for being slow on the uptake.

You first, you are the one avoiding your earlier assertion. On what grounds does your accusation of me not reading the articles I post have to do with you bringing up Trump?
