One of the main purposes for the Misadventures of Johnny Northside blog is to inform the public about Hoff and his past, current and even future wrongdoings. We have documented several instances where Hoff lied to any number of people who range from everyday people who read his blog up to but, not limited to, the Veteran's Administration and at least one judge.
Hoff's biggest enemy is not me, Jim Watkins (as Hoff has stated). Rather it is himself. He gets caught up in the minor publicity that comes with being sued for getting someone fired and LOSING, resulting in a $60,000 judgement against him. For Hoff to appeal the case, he needed roughly $4000 to file the appeal. It ended up being paid by a free speech group that joined his case as a "friend of the court."
Since March of 2011, which is right after he lost round 1 of the "Trial of the Century" (that too was a name Hoff decided to attach to his case), Hoff's homepage on his blog has been soliciting cash donations to help "defend the first amendment." Below is the copy of his plea for money.
Support The Adventures of Johnny Northside--WE NEED FUNDS TO DEFEND THE FIRST AMENDMENT!
If you scroll way down the homepage of his blog, you will see where he offers the public his "Acknowledgement of Support." Here is what he has posted and pay special notice to the larger text in bold...
Acknowledgment Of Support
Thank you for your help defending the First Amendment. Everything you contributed was applied to expenses, including a rather pricey transcript of the trial.I have nearly come to the conclusion that you can tell when John Hoff is lying because, his lips are moving! However, when he lies on his blog, it would be his fingers typing to know he is lying. Allow me to give you, the readers the un-deniable proof that Hoff has lied to both the readers of his blog as well as anyone who has donated money.
But don't worry. Eventually we'll have a lot of fun with THAT document, especially Jerry Moore's testimony.
If you do feel like contributing toward our blogging efforts and/or legal defense, whether financially or with a letter of support or with paper copies of information you think I'd find of interest, mail it to The Adventures of Johnny Northside, 2226 Bryant Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55411.
In November of 2012, Hoff published a post about TJ Waconia and included a bunch of court documents that were in PDF format on Pacer.gov. Users wanting to get copies of records on the site have to pay for it. The following link is for the post I am talking about.
A Traditional Thanksgiving Bounty Of TJ Waconia Court Documents, Including Transcript Of Criminal Sentencing...
In that post, Hoff completes his lie when he made the following statement... (remember above he tells readers that "Everything you contributed was applied towards expenses." And he was talking about the "Trial of the Century" expenses.)
"The coolest document in the bunch (of TJ Waconia court records) has to be the transcript of their hearing, which cost a pretty penny but, hey, PayPal donations."This is another prime example of how Hoff does what he wants and doesn't think twice about lying to the very people who gave him money to help him defend the first amendment but, decided to spend "a pretty penny" on TJ Waconia documents. Let me remind readers who might not keep up with dates... The TJ Waconia case was wrapped up for the two owners of TJ Waconia in April of 2009. Yet somehow, Hoff thought it was important to lie to his contributors about where their money was going but, he did it in order to continue his attack on a 3+ year old case that no other media outlet writes about anymore because, its yesterday's news!
It makes me wonder all the other places he might have wasted the generous donations his readers have given him? If I was one that gave him money, I would damn sure want to know and ask him.
