Rep. Bobby Rush denies a report that he is being sued by New City Bank.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the bank is demanding he pay off two mortgages after he allegedly failed to pay his 2009 property taxes on a Chicago home and a Michigan condominium.

The bank is reportedly suing Rush for $568,000.

A spokesperson for Rush said neither the congressman nor his attorney have been served with legal documents from New City Bank and mortgages on both properties are current.
