RSA Must Produce Membership Records in Its Case Against Tenant Group
LVT Number: #30914
The Rent Stabilization Association (RSA), a landlord's advocacy organization, sued McKee and the Tenants Political Action Committee, Inc. (TPAC), claiming defamation. On May 2, 2018, McKee had attended a NY City Council Housing and Buildings Committee meeting and stated that in 2010 RSA had promised three Democratic state senators campaign fund payments if they voted against two TPAC bills under consideration. He further stated that each of the three accepted $150,000 from RSA.
