Boston Herald A landlady who doubles as a peace activist has refused to let a war veteran rent her property, citing 'conflicts of interest', he has claimed.
Sgt. Joel Morgan, 29, said he tried to rent a two-bedroom $1,220-a-month apartment in Savin Hill, Massachusetts after looking at it in April.
But the National Guardsman, who has served in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo, was stunned when the property's owner, Janice Roberts, 63, turned him away due to her staunch beliefs and his war service.
In a voicemail dated to April 9, played for the Boston Herald in the presence of the veteran’s lawyer, 63-year-old Janice Roberts reportedly said: “It just is not going to be comfortable for us without a doubt. It probably would be better for you to look for a place that is a little bit less politically active and controversial,” adding, “We are very adamant about our political beliefs.”
