For all the Johnny Northside a.k.a. John Hoff supporters who have stood by him and stated on various websites and blogs that you think John Hoff is a great asset to the community and he is an activist that is clearly doing good... I ask you the following question.
As few of you probably know, John Hoff has a degree in Law. He has stated in past interviews how he wants to open offices that specialize in "Lesbian issues, International Space Law and Freedom of Information." While those may be on the back burner for now, I wondered to myself, "Here is a guy who has a degree in Law and all he needs to do is pass the State Bar exam to become an Attorney. I can't begin to count the ways he could contribute to the community in BIG ways if he were an attorney doing legal work "pro bono" (meaning he does it for free).
However, not only has he made no indication of using his law degree to do some good for the community, he actually detracts from the community and legal system because, he has filed motions for "In Forma Pauperis" in his recent child support case (among others). A recent post dedicated to this explains what In Forma Pauperis is but, in short it means that John admits he does not have enough money to hire legal representation but, he has the right to a fair trial. The court system then waives his legal fees.
Getting to my question now.... Do you feel John Hoff really has the communities best interests in mind rather than himself? A Law degree that was obtained using any number of student loans and grants but, John won't use that degree to give back to the community.
Side note: To date, John has yet to pay his 2008 or 2009 property taxes either.
