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."
