|John Hoff - America's # 1 Hypocrite|
I have previously posted about the time when John lived in Seattle and was cited for sitting on a sidewalk during a time that was not allowed.
Did John not know about the no-sitting ordinance and his timing simply unlucky when he got the ticket? Hardly. Make no mistake about it, follks... John "the hypocrite" Hoff, knew full well about the ordinance (See text below in red) and was there to stir up trouble and after he was ticketed he wasted the courts time by appealing the lower courts ruling to the Washington State Court of Appeals. For SITTING ON A SIDEWALK!
Allow me to provide the readers with proof of John's frivolous court battle on the matter... Here is the link to see for yourself: http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19970603&slug=2542653

Seattle's Sidewalk Ordinance Upheld
SEATTLE - The state Court of Appeals upheld the constitutionality of Seattle's sidewalk ordinance yesterday.
Sarah McConahy, a formerly homeless youth, and John Hoff, an advocate for Seattle's homeless, were cited in 1994 for sitting on the sidewalk in the University District. McConahy was sitting with friends, eating and sometimes panhandling, and wearing a button that said: "Sitting is not a crime." Hoff was sitting reading a book with leaflets in his lap advertising a protest against the ordinance.
The two had separate municipal court trials. Each was found to have violated the sidewalk ordinance.
McConahy and Hoff joined together to appeal the decision, alleging that the ordinance violated the state constitution, including their rights to free speech and due process.
The 1994 ordinance bans sitting or lying on public sidewalks in commercial areas from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
John bashes Al Flowers for filing frivolous lawsuits and proceeds to bash him in public on his Blog YET, John decided that an ordinance was stupid and goes and gets himself a ticket so he can make himself an attention whore in the press while he tries to prove the law itself was stupid.
Did anyone notice that John didn't make his case about the law to those who made the law rather, John violated the law on purpose so he could exploit the law AND get his name in the paper!
Pffttt! John Hoff himself is frivolous!
