A Lincoln, Nebraska landlord has gone to court to defend himself against the charges that he demanded sex from his female tenants.

The Justice Department has brought civil action against Koch for allegedly demanding sexual favors from women tenants—many of them low-income and desperate to find housing—in lieu of such things as rent and security depositsWhawhawhaaaaaa?

That’s pretty damn sleazy in and of itself, but his lawyer wins for best quote:

“There were no violent acts committed by Mr. Koch—that’s important here,” [Attorney Matthey McBride] said

    Did you ever see The Grifters with John Cusack?

    Annette Bening put out for her landlord instead of paying rent.  Your link just reminded me of that.

    It’s worth renting.  You get to see her nekkid.

    Thanks for reminding me about that movie.  I’ve wanted to see it for awhile.  Does Anjelica Houston get nekkid too?

    demanding sexual favors from women tenants

    all I have to say is… MOVE THE FUCK OUT…

    when will we hold women accountable for moronic garbage like this

    Bear in mind that we’re talking about women who had very little in the way of housing options. These were women with very little income trying to support themselves and their family. It’s not easy to walk away from that kind of situation when you don’t have any other viable alternatives.

    That’s what makes this so sickening. The guy KNEW these women had no other options and would probably agree just to keep from being homeless.

    what town has no other options? there are no shelters? friends? a freaking car. I don’t want to sound heartless, but there is always a way. you just may not want to take it. what’s worse, screwing for rent or hitting the road. if it wasn’t convenient for this lady she would not have continued.

    jesus, I found places to crash for 9 months, and I’m a grateless asshole.

    Of course, had every single one of those women just walked away, he’d have never been caught.

    maybe i’m just jaded, but I almost never buy the “helpless” bit. I say take that bit, look at it for the 2 quarters it is and use it to buy a soda, a bus ride, or a phone call.

    we all do stupid things for pride. for the pride of her’s and her kids she took this.

    and not to defend this cocksmoking landlord, but he was doing what they do best. exploiting tennants.
