Former Biden DOJ Official Running for Congress Claims ‘Rent Is Too Damn High’ Despite Owning Millions in Real Estate


Maggie Goodlander, a Democrat running for Congress in New Hampshire and a former official in Biden’s Justice Department, says rents in her state are “too damn high.” However, she has millions of dollars invested in dozens of real estate properties, such as a Florida golf course and a casino in New Hampshire.

Goodlander, who is married to national security director Jake Sullivan, said on WGIR-AM’s “New Hampshire Today with Chris Ryan” on May 14 that “housing is top of mind” for people who might vote for her.

“The rents are way too damn high, and it’s been impossible to afford to buy a home, which is what the American dream is all about,” she said.

But that hasn’t been the case for Goodlander. According to her husband’s 2024 federal financial disclosures, which were received by The Post, she had between $6 and $30 million in trust funds and a lot of real estate.

Goodlander is the only one who can use the trust funds, and she made between $200,000 and $2 million last year from interest, capital gains, rent, and profits.

Florida golf clubs, like the Citrus Hills Golf and Country Club in Hernando, which charges more than $2,000 a year for membership, are interested in one of the funds.

Another fund strangely lists Boston Billiards as an HVAC company in New Hampshire, which The Post couldn’t find by searching public records in that state.

Goodlander was born in Nashua, New Hampshire. In August, the Boston Billiard Club and Casino was renamed the City Gate Casino as part of a $250 million investment by ECL Entertainment, according to the New Hampshire Business Review.

Other properties include office buildings, industrial parks, other business and residential real estate, land that hasn’t been built on yet, and land that is leased to Irving Oil, a Canadian gas company.

Maggie Goodlander’s campaign for Congress said in a statement, “At the Department of Justice, Maggie fought for renters and homebuyers by going after companies that raise prices. She has been clear from day one that she will bring those same values to Congress.”

Once upon a time, Goodlander’s grandpa, Samuel Tamposi, owned over 400 properties worth a total of $70 million in New Hampshire and Florida. He was the biggest commercial real estate developer in New Hampshire and died in 1995.

Tamposi’s trust fund was later split between his six children, with half of the payments delayed so that the money could go straight to his grandchildren.

The Daily Beast and the New York Times both claimed that Goodlander and Sullivan also bought a $1.2 million house in Portsmouth, a city on the coast, in 2018.

Goodlander gave her first interview to the Boston Globe earlier this month after announcing her run for office. She said, “I am a renter, and there should be more renters in Congress.”

In mid-May, Goodlander was asked about renting a house in Nashua during an interview with “New Hampshire Today.” She did not mention the house in Portsmouth.

A lot of the last three years, Goodlander has worked in government to try to hold corporate powers responsible for what they have done and are doing to make life harder for hardworking people in this state. In the interview, she talked about the message her campaign wants to send to voters.

She also talked about her experience as deputy assistant attorney general in the antitrust section of the Justice Department. “We’re talking about the cost of living, the cost of basic necessities like housing, health care, and food on the table,” she said.

A lot of people will be interested in Goodlander’s property and trust fund holdings before the competitive Democratic primary on September 10 in New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District. That’s when she will face state Sen. Becky Whitley and Colin Van Ostern, who was the 2016 Democratic nominee for governor of Granite State and was the campaign manager for retiring Democratic Rep. Annie Kuster.

Goodlander recently moved back to her home state after living in Washington, D.C. This has also led to claims that she is carpetbagging after announcing her candidacy on May 9.

According to voting records seen by the Times, Goodlander hasn’t voted in New Hampshire’s 2nd District since 2008, when she was a freshman at Yale.
