It's always the NORMAL looking ones you gotta worry about...here's
JOHN CHRISTOPHER BURTON (I)


Not to be confused with: Sen. John Burton (democrats.sen.ca.gov)

Occupation: Attorney (johnburtonlaw.com) - specialising in "high profile police misconduct" cases (uh oh)

Real party affilation: Socialist Equality Party

Website: www.socialequality.com - although practically all links head to World Socialist Web Site (wsws.org)

SEP recommendation: "No" on the recall - that's right, they'd rather have Davis than their man. How come? Ummm, I think it's because they hate the Republicans even more, or something (wsws.org)

Then again...: "Burton is running in order to put forward a democratic and socialist alternative to both parties of big business. He is calling on Californians to vote for him in order to express, in the event of a successful recall of Davis, their support for the building of a genuinely independent political movement based on the working class."

More candidates should: Website has links in both English and Spanish

Hear him: Click Here (wsws.org) (60 sec. audio clip)

For yuks, we recommend: His letter to Jay Leno declining the invitation to appear in the audience on his show (wsws.org) For instance, this quote...

All politicians lie: "I will not participate in anything that detracts from the gravity of the political questions facing the people of California and the country as a whole."

Seat at the table: One of seven progressive (ie "left") candidates participating in the upcoming GLOVES OFF debate (glovesoff.org) - a site which manages to answer the question "Is there any group in California which Arianna Huffington would actually turn down?

And finally: A Ventura County Star columnist called Burton's law office for a quote in a civil rights story, not realising he was running for governor - only in California, people (insidevc.com)

Vote for John Christopher Burton, the "Socialist Lawyer" candidate

LATER: UMM MAYBE THE CRAZY GUY - OH, WHICH ONE?

I think that says something about Gray Davis...



"If this cruel, loudmouth extremist is the cream of the Democratic crop, next November's going to make the 1984 election look like a squeaker."

We're less likely to use them, so the fact that we have them is pretty moot. And if we DID use them, we'd have everything to lose as there are A LOT of other countries that would start getting REALLY pissy after that.
