A few months ago, the Washington Post got wind of an investigation into whether presidential aide and former Breitbart CEO Steve Bannon used a house in Miami for voter fraud.

Now, an exclusive report by Shareblue reveals that the allegations against Bannon related to his residence at 1794 Opechee Drive are much seedier than voter fraud.

The interview details the experiences of Lawrence Curtis, a cinematographer who occupied Bannon‘s former Miami residence shortly after he moved out. The allegations his real estate agent made about the former tenants are shocking.

While Bannon rented the house with his third ex-wife, they “put padlocks on all the doors, installed video cameras, and had ruined the bathtub, kitchen counter, and floor.” The landlord, Carlos Herrera, believed they were cooking and using meth in the house, and that they also used the property to film pornography.

“Each person gave accounts that the house was used to film pornography, had a constant flow of men, women — and even children — at the house and that blatant drug use was occurring at all hours of the night and day,” Curtis told Shareblue.

Bannon and his ex-wife had accumulated such a reputation that repairmen refused to come to the residence “if the same people were living in the house because ‘that house is evil and the people are evil,'” Curtis said.

After assuaging one repairman’s anxieties, Curtis said he learned horror stories while the man was working on the house.

“The tenants would scream at him to leave and threatened him with violence,” Curtis said.

“At other times, when he was allowed into the house to perform work, he observed topless and naked men and women and the constant presence of drugs, which they would sometimes offer to him,” the report continues.

“You have no idea what kind of evil stuff went on in the house,” the repairman told Curtis.

On another occasion, Curtis claimed, a woman who appeared strung out on drugs came to the house after he moved in asking for “Steve” or his ex-wife.

“I assumed she was probably a regular visitor to the house looking for drugs from the previous tenants,” Curtis told Shareblue, “but I didn’t realize just how bad the drug use in the house had been at the time. I firmly told her to leave and to not come back.”
