(Portland, OR) -- Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty is being sued for unpaid credit card bills. KGW reports court documents were filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court in late November. Bank of America claims that two of Hardesty's credit card accounts totaling 16-thousand-51 dollars are in default. In a written statement, Hardesty says she accrued the debt while running for City Council in 2018, and intends to repay the bank. Hardesty has 30 days to respond to the suit. This week, Hardesty filed a five-million dollar lawsuit against the Portland Police Union, the former head of the Police Union, and a Portland Police officer for a media leak falsely implicating her in a hit and run crash.
