WASHINGTON D.C. — Incoming U.S. House District 10 Rep. Maxwell Frost revealed that he was turned down for an apartment in Washington, D.C. because his credit is “bad.”


Frost posted about it on Twitter: “This ain’t meant for people who don’t already have money.”

He said he has credit issues because he ran up a lot of debt while running for Congress in 2022.
