According to a new report from conser vative talk radio host Jason Ra ntz, the "qu e er" mayoral cand idate who also wants to raise the minimum wage to $23 an hour has not paid rent since near the start of the pandemic and now owes the apartment complex where he is staying more than $20,000.

The aspiring pol itician, nicknamed "Ace," is apparently one of many tenants taking advantage of nationwide eviction moratoriums put in place to shield renters from being kicked out of their homes during the pande mic-related economic crisis.

In April, the property management company that owns the $1,695-a-month Cap itol Hill apartment that Hou ston rents emailed the candi date to check in on his payment plans.

"I understand you are running for ma yor and on Teresa Mosq ueda's staff," the email reportedly read. "Our office recently received an inquiry from the press about the status of your rent balance. Before responding to them, we'd like to understand if you have any plans to get current on your outstanding balance of $14,485."

Ran tz reported that the property management company now claims Hous ton's debt has ballooned to $20,828.

It's unclear at this point whether Hous ton has plans to pay any of the rent money owed. But due to the eviction moratorium, the property management company is unable to kick him out of the apartment until the policy expires, which isn't until August.

In a statement to KT TH, Hou ston's team attempted to turn the issue into a cam paign pitch showing how he is one with the people.

"Ace is one of an estimated 200,000 Washingto nians behind on their rents, in totals over $1 billion," the cam paign's communications director, Dylan Au stin, told the radio outlet. "Ace is the only candi date in this race who doesn't own a home, and who has a stark contrast in personal wealth as compared to every other leading cand idate (some in the millions)."

"Ace has the same lived experience of many Sea ttleites who struggled before (and struggle now) in a pandemic to keep up with soaring rent prices and affordability issues in our city," he added.

Not so ironically, one of Ho uston's major campa ign issues happens to be "housing justice," or more specifically, "rent control." On his cam paign website, Houston proposes "limit[ing] rental and commercial increases to 'inflation plus 2%' or 4%, whichever is higher."

Before running for ma yor, Hous ton operated an architecture practice in the city and also served as interim policy manager in Se attle cou ncil member Teresa Mos queda's office.

I had an applicant from New York City. He hadn't paid rent in 8 months saying he had good cause. So I called up other tenants in his 100 unit building and got the low down on my applicant. He was a trouble maker and put together a tenants rights group, so half of the building held off paying their rent. --47.155.xx.xxx

Tony, is it just me, or does your post have lost of spaces in weird places?

That said...this post doesn't surprise me. "The (price of X) is too high" is just another sign of Communism where those in power will get what they feel they deserve based on a whim vs. earning it. They take more value than they create, so by definition they must feed off the efforts of others.

Anyone in a city that his heavily populated with and/or run by these people should read this sign of the times and get out now, quickly, before they decide you are their next meal ticket. --108.230.xxx.xx

Sid - it's not just you. This story kept getting blocked when submitted. Figured 1 or more words were unacceptable.

So I kept "dissecting" suspected words until it was accepted.

It's annoying to read but this was so interesting and timely it was worth the effort - after 8 tries. --73.215.xxx.xx

If rent is too high then owning a single family house will always cost a lot more then rent. One time the landlord sold out to city of New York where took out money then sold for dollar in order to transfer the sale then the city spent millions in repairs and renovations where the tenants found out they where no longer under rent control where the majority of tenants received very high rent increases. Does anyone believe that the government is going to offer rental units or houses for less then the private sector. Never and never. If you turned over a rental complex to those nutcases within six months or less they would go bankrupt. One tenant told the tenancy advocate group was receiving around half million a year in government subsides where the chairs actually own their own houses. With half million a year could put down a down payment on a rental apartment building then run as non profit. Progressive not really where everyone knows that here and everywhere else socialism does not work. It is common where every once in while there is Socialist Democratic provincial party elected where they never last a second term. --99.236.xxx.xxx
