State Senator David Storobin has been sued for missing rent payments, a lot.
"In 11 years, I had three late payments," Storobin told the Daily News, when asked about the lawsuits filed by his landlord, Trump Village Apartments, between 2009 and 2011.
"It was a one-month thing in each case," he said, and "We are talking about a few weeks."
But according to housing court records in Brooklyn, Storobin had been sued a total of eight times—for $24,500.63 in late rent—dating back to 2007. The last time he was sued was on August 24 of this year, just weeks before the Daily News first reported on his rent problems.
Each time Storobin was sued, he wound up paying his bill. He still resides at the same location.
Storobin's spokesman Steven Stites did not respond to an emailed request for comment, and several phone calls to Stites' cell phone went directly to voice mail.
Here are the dates on which Storobin was sued by his landlord, with the amounts he was alleged to owe:
