Incoming Democratic Florida Rep. Maxwell Alejandro Frost said Thursday he was denied an apartment in Washington, D.C., due to bad credit.

The 25-year-old Frost said his credit was “really bad” but, nonetheless, the realtor had assured him that he would be “fine,” according to the tweet. Frost said he also lost out on the application fee.

“This ain’t meant for people who don’t already have money,” Frost lamented. (RELATED: Apartment Demand Drops To 30-Year Low As Renters Lose Confidence In The Market)

In a subsequent tweet, Frost said he had poor credit due to the costs of running a Congressional campaign. The incoming congressman said he quit his job to run for office full-time, and took a financial hit because of it.

Prior to being elected into the House, Frost was a part-time Uber driver, according to The New York Post. (RELATED: REPORT: Uber Faces Sexual Assault Allegations From More Than 500 Women)

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez faced similar woes with regard to finding an apartment when she was a freshman lawmaker, according to The New York Times.

Frost will be sworn into office in January.
