We wrote last week about an anti-school levy group in Southwestern Ohio taking on the issue of pay-to-play. That’s when schools charge students fees to participate in extracurricular activities, particularly sports.
Now the Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that one of the leaders of the No Lakota and Yes to Lakota groups is under scrutiny:
Anti-school tax activist Rich Hoffman, who has led vigorous campaigns in defeating three Lakota school tax hikes, finds him self at the center of a firestorm for recent online comments derogatory toward women in the school district.
The head of the anti-school tax group NoLakota wrote on his internet blog site that Lakota school mothers are “just prostitutes to their husbands who do everything they can to be away from them aside from the occasional sex”.
“Their husband’s roll them over at night and insert their manhood into these women of the bedroom and hundred-dollar bills find their way into their purses. The women don’t know what the man does to earn the money, nor do they care. They are busy saving the world one child at a time with howls of safety and more regulations as they rush to the polling places at election time,” wrote Hoffman.
On his personal website, Hoffman describes himself as a writer, bullwhip performer, and author who was inspired by the debate over the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, as seen in the Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers.
The Enquirer reports that one community group has declined to take money from Hoffman’s groups because of his comments.
