There’s this fellow in Washington State, who goes by a number of names, but his real name is Hugh Clarence Johnson. Some of his “also known as” monikers are; Hubert Clarence Johnson aka Hugh Clearence Johnson aka Hugh Clarence Johnson aka Hugh Johnson aka Hugh Jonson aka Clarence H. Jonson aka C H Johnson aka Hugo C. Johnson. He was arrested a few months ago for practicing holistic medicine without a license, according to the Whidbey Island, Washington News-Times;
I saw this story in the Whidbey News Times, but didn’t really do more than skim it. But Jonn, of course, caught the whole Stolen Valor angle.

Oak Harbor (where I grew up) is a Navy town, home to NAS Whidbey Island. You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting an active or retired sailor. How this dipshit thought he could get away with this, when half the city knows the uniform regulations, is beyond me.
Kudos to OHPD and the Whidbey News-Times (which I used to deliver).
