Apparently Kushner's company bought buildings cheaply in run-down areas of NYC, then lied in forms required to develop the buildings, stating there were no rent-controlled tenants. Moreover, apparently the company did not conform to construction regulations designed to protect tenants from disruption and noise. (see AP story at this link). This allowed them to make a hefty profit while at the same time gentrifying places needed for housing people of modest means. But hey, even when this guy's company has committed outright falsehoods in submitting forms to NYC, it's OK that he is in the inner circle of the WH.
