    Maybe the landlord is looking at her credit history or debt to income ratio.  Was an eviction action started against her in the past?  The landlord is not required to rent until there is a lease contract and probably has other legal ways of choosing a tenant.  Somebody has to reliably pay the mortgage and the landlord does not want to be stuck with an unproductive property.  

    I agree that nobody should be financially ruined because of healthcare.  Just got to bring the Republican 47% of the country around.

      playboys who've never had any real responsibility in their lives turn out to be completely inept managers?

      I looked for answers to a lot of these. These guys are just plain incompetent.

      It happens sometimes.

      They're also having trouble paying the electric bills for their buildings, are losing a lot of tenants because they're trying to charge 2.5K a month for studio apartments in two buildings that are a block away from where one-bedrooms are going for 16-1800, in a luxury high-rise, and have created pest problems in their own buildings through negligence.

      We're not talking about a bright bunch of guys here.

      It's idiotic to take a call from the press during a legal crisis and accuse a cancer survivor of being a "Sour Grapes Tenant." The best course is not to comment, not to insult the person who's suing you for discrimination.

      But the founder of the company is personally taking calls from the press about this? It's moronic.

      Your asking about missing information? These guys have been in business for just over a year. They don't know what they're doing. They're making decisions without consulting council, they're screaming at council in the hallways of courtrooms for not cleaning up their messes fast enough, and they're making just about every mistake it's possible for someone in their position to make.

      These guys are idiots, and they're not going to be in business very long.
