400% Rise In Evictions After Sean Hannity Bought Apt. Complex

Wait, I thought he wanted to help poor people with that HUD money?

No one ever does anything unpleasant or wrong in Republican World. These things just sort of happen, and no one is ever to blame! Via The Guardian:

The number of eviction orders obtained against tenants in a Georgia apartment complex owned by Sean Hannity has sharply increased since the property was bought by the Fox News host.

County court records say that judgments approving the removal of 61 different residents of the Hampton Place apartments in Perry have been issued during the three years and 10 months since Hannity took over.

The previous owner of the 152-unit apartment complex obtained similar orders against 12 different tenants during the preceding three years and 10 months, according to the records, before selling it to Hannity for almost $8m.

Christopher Reeves, an attorney for the Fox News host, said in an email: “Mr Hannity is not involved in the management of these properties. Evictions only occur after a material breach of the lease terms.”

Hannity is reportedly paid $36m per year by Fox News. Nice to know he's looking out for the little people!
