Question: Should an individual who blogs in an attempt to clean up neighborhoods of crime, drugs, etc., be given a "pass" on having to pay property taxes and child support?
The more I look into John Hoff's past and present, I keep finding public and court records that say John Hoff is behind or does not pay as he is required.
On January 12, 2009, a hearing was held in a Dakota- West St. Paul court. John Hoff's ex-wife filed a "Notice of Hearing for Enforcement" on 8/7/09 and on Christmas eve, John filed an "Affidavit for Proceeding In Forma Pauperis." Johnny Northside rants about people living like "royalty" on his blog but, he fails to pay his child support, prompting his ex-wife to take him back to court. http://pa.courts.state.mn.us/CaseDetail.aspx?CaseID=760369299
For those who are not familiar with "In Forma Pauperis" this is the definition as published on dictionary/law.com:
"in forma pauperis
(in form-ah paw-purr-iss) adj. or adv. Latin for "in the form of a pauper," referring to a party to a lawsuit who gets filing fees waived by filing a declaration of lack of funds (has no money to pay). These declarations are most often found in divorces by young marrieds or poor defendants who have been sued."
This attitude by John makes me wonder if part of his revitalization plan includes funds collected for property taxes? Why think such a thing, you might ask? The following is a screen shot taken from the Hennepin county property website:
I urge the Johnny Northside supporters to ask John about these two matters. Better yet, ask Don Samuels, Barb Johnson or even Mayor Rybak, if this type of behavior is acceptable by any citizen, regardless of whether they promote them on his blog.
