Missed one?

It's always the NORMAL looking ones you gotta worry's

Not to be confused with: Sen. John Burton (

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

Real party affilation: Socialist Equality Party

Website: - although practically all links head to World Socialist Web Site (

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 (

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 ( (60 sec. audio clip)

For yuks, we recommend: His letter to Jay Leno declining the invitation to appear in the audience on his show ( 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 ( - 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 (

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

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."

In Kansas there are several deaths each year in construction zones. This year 10 have already died. That means our troopers have no tolerance for speeding, especially since they are often casualties. Maybe that's why.
