State Rep. Brian Banks' landlord says he is owed rent money
His past, by the way, includes multiple felony convictions and multiple home evictions. Oh, and we were waiting to speak to him last November when the repo man made the scene. Banks Land Rover got hauled away for failure to pay his loan.
After getting down to business, Mr. Banks co-sponsored 17 bills, but there is one bill that he hasn't addressed -- his rent. His landlord said he wants to evict Banks after he bounced a check.
Banks' lawyer said he is in a dispute with his landlord and is paying his rent into escrow. His landlord said that is the first he has heard of any dispute, and local officials in Grosse Pointe Woods said there is no escrow account.
Banks supposedly couldn't meet with me on Friday because he was busy meeting with seniors. When I called city hall, officials there told me while I was on the phone that a man matching Banks' description came in and tried to create an escrow account to pay rent to, who else, Banks' landlord.
This is very curious. If Banks was meeting with seniors, why was his Doppelganger trying to pay his rent? And if he is paying rent to an escrow account that may or may not exist, why did he write a rubber check to his landlord?
