Cori Bush, Democrat demanding eviction halt, was sued for not paying rent
Rep. Bush was sued for not paying thousands of dollars in rent in 2015
"Squad" member Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri, who has been demanding a halt in evictions since last week, was sued for not paying thousands of dollars in rent in 2015.
In early June 2015, the Circuit Court of St. Louis County, Missouri ordered Bush to pay $3,167.25, including court costs, to the plaintiff Trotwood Downs and Brittany Town Homes, state court records reviewed by Fox News show.
Attorney Randall Reinker, who represented Trotwood Downs and specializes in "landlord/tenant matters for individual and group property owners," told Fox News that as a result of Bush not paying the rent, she was issued a "general execution" and evicted from the property later that month.
Bush has been evicted at least two other times, according to a letter that she sent last week to her House colleagues urging them to extend the moratorium before leaving for August recess, noting that she was previously "forced" to live in her car with her two children.
A Fox News reporter attempted to ask Bush questions Tuesday afternoon about the moratorium and her three evictions while she was speaking to other Democratic senators outside the Capitol, including Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., but one of her staff members attempted to block the camera and said she was not taking questions.
In another video, the Fox News reporter asked Bush about the circumstances involving her evictions, prompting a staffer to say, "We aren't taking press right now, man. She's meeting with Senators." The staffer, who was visibly irritated by the reporter attempting to ask another question, said, "Do a Google search."
Bush has been using her Twitter account and appearances outside the U.S. Capitol to protest against the expiration of the federal eviction moratorium that took place on Saturday. This past Friday evening, Bush took to Twitter to blast her Democratic colleagues for leaving town for August recess versus staying in town to vote for an extension of the moratorium.
"Many of my Democratic colleagues chose to go on vacation early today rather than staying to vote to keep people in their homes," Bush tweeted. "I'll be sleeping outside the Capitol tonight. We've still got work to do."
"Earlier today, I sent a letter to my colleagues stressing the urgency of extending the eviction moratorium. Many of them failed to meet this moment," she continued in another tweet. "I'm inviting them now to join me in sleeping outside the Capitol in a push to extend the moratorium. It's not too late."
On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced a new 60-day ban on evictions for certain renters, specifically those living in counties that have "substantial and high levels" of coronavirus infections as of Aug. 1.
"The emergence of the delta variant has led to a rapid acceleration of community transmission in the United States, putting more Americans at increased risk, especially if they are unvaccinated," CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said in a statement. "This moratorium is the right thing to do to keep people in their homes and out of congregate settings where COVID-19 spreads."
Bush reacted to the announcement by tweeting, "Our movement moved mountains."
Rep. Bush's office did not respond to Fox News' request on how the 2015 lawsuit against her for not paying rent impacts her views on the eviction moratorium.

Tenants dont have to pay rent but landlords with mortgage loans still have to pay the bank .

Seems reasonable .





And there are MILLIONS of people who simply want FREE.

It was never reasonable but a large number of people supported these types of lockdowns and countermeasures. Covid was going to kill us all. Now those same people are decrying the fact that the policies they supported have become the law of the land.

This kind of action has nothing to do with Covid..

The 'law of the land ' is totally in the hands of the Democratic Party.

And they are giving their constituents exactly what they want.





Demographic trends don't lie and the resulting political consequences are crystal clear.

This country is finished .


All due to 'cheap ' labor.

It has everything to do with Covid. Covid was the excuse needed to make these measures the law of the land. Same with the payments to people. They will remain in place indefinitely because we were so scared of this disease we shut down everything and allowed these kinds of measures to be instituted.

This was the great reset for instituting socialist policies. It's just a shame that many conservatives who were so scared of this disease went along with the tyranny. They have themselves largely to blame.

What will our country look like when it is legislated that nobody should assume any personal responsibility or pay their bills?

My guess is, not pretty.

If the Democratic Party wasn't in control of all 3 branches of the federal government unconstitutional actions like this wouldn't happen.......with or without Covid.

And its shifting demographics more than any other factor that has put the Democrats in power. Birthrates being what they are along with 'voter harvesting' ) will keep the Democrats in control for many years to come.

Cheap labor is never cheap in the long run.

Cheap labor is never cheap in the long run.
The Democratic party is not in control of the federal judiciary and had not been in control of it for decades. GOP appointed judges have been a majority of SCOTUS and the total judiciary for years.

Moreover, suggesting that the Democrats "control" congress is seriously misleading. Because of the filibuster rule, the bicameral legislature and two-year house terms, the Democrats have not "controlled congress since 2008-2010.

Finally, much of "the law of the land" comes from state governments where the GOP is much stronger.

I practice law in a red county. Very red.

The JP here is holding eviction hearings when the reason for eviction is other than non-payment of rent.

I'm going to refile an eviction case for a woman who lost her eviction suit pro se. Her ex-boyfriend is squatting in her house. He claims they are married, she testified they are not. Without proof of marriage he has no right of possession.

This is basic property rights stuff. If the judge were a Democrat we could just say "oh well, they love free stuff."

But since the judge is a Republican maybe it's a little more complex.

I have another client who sold over 800 doors as soon as the eviction pause began. In a red state.

So what is your opinion, Mr. Libertarian lawyer, about the CDC mocking and giving the Supreme Court the finger, just days after the Supreme Court ruled that the CDC has no authority to put in place an eviction moratorium?

Who is going to enforce the Supreme Court's decision? Attorney General Merrick Garland? It appears this administration is going to do whatever they want and nobody is going to stop them. Not even the Supreme Court.

They're getting what they deserve.

I have no idea what you are talking about. The eviction ban here, in JP court, comes from the county.

From what little you gave me to go on I would say that a landlord could sue to get relief from the CDC. Federal judges have had authority over agencies since Marbury v Madison.

You deleted the important part.

A judge in Arkansas just refused to enforce the mask ban.

Maybe your fear of the power of the CDC was misplaced.

The topic had nothing to do with masks. It was about the Supreme Court's recent ruling stating the CDC does not have the authority to impose eviction moratoriams. The CDC almost immediately extended the eviction moratoriam another sixty days.

If you were a landlord, you might feel differently.

I represent some.

And what went right over your head is that a judge rejected a CDC dictate. But keep fearing the CDC ..

I do not fear the CDC,- I just don't respect them. They have lost all credibility.

All sparring aside, I would be fascinated how some of your eviction cases turn out.

Non-lawyer JPs can be a real pain. Had the same one toss a guy who was fulfilling a promise (family deal) and then leave an ex who had run off the owner girlfriend. I didn't represent her at the JP court but I am doing the appeal. Ought to be slam dunk, she's the owner, he's a squatter.
