Stealth election
ENDORSEMENTS 2008: A racial separatist running for judge could win if voters don't pay attention.
May 5, 2008

Voters aren't showing much excitement over the June 3 election, apart from a race to replace Supervisor Yvonne B. Burke in Los Angeles County's 2nd District. Turnout is expected to be light. Many who do vote will do so by mail, beginning today. It is a stealth election, providing an opportunity to a dangerous candidate with a small but dedicated following of people who make it a point to vote when others don't bother.

That's especially true in the races for Los Angeles Superior Court judge. Little is known to voters about judicial candidates except for their names, their three-word ballot designations and the slate mailers that, for a price, show their photos and list their qualifications. Two years ago, voters relying on such information ousted accomplished jurist Dzintra Janavs and replaced her with Lynn Diane Olson, the owner of a bagel bakery who had not actively practiced law for a decade; political observers speculated that voters simply preferred the sound of Olson's name.

It was a bad choice, but Olson was simply underqualified. This year it's more serious. Los Angeles voters, if they don't pay attention, could hand judicial robes to a racial separatist who called for restricting U.S. citizenship to persons "of the European race" and deporting blacks, Asians, Latinos and others who don't meet his racial criteria.

The candidate is Bill Johnson. Under the name James O. Pace, he wrote the racial exclusion as a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution and a 1985 book supporting it. Under the name Daniel Johnson, he ran a losing race for Congress in Wyoming in 1989 with a Ku Klux Klan organizer as his campaign manager. As William Johnson, he ran a losing race for Congress in Arizona in 2006. He now may have found a race he can win, unless voters here find out who he is.

The Times on April 21 endorsed Johnsonís opponent, Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner James Bianco, because Bianco is experienced and impressive and because Johnson was secretive about his past and about his role in a questionable campaign to remove six Latino judges from the court. Now the Metropolitan News-Enterprise, a newspaper that reports on courts and the legal community, has put together the rest of the pieces on Johnson.

Johnson has been active in the Ron Paul for president campaign (he says his views on race now are identical to Paul's) and is relying on Paul supporters to rally for him. They just might do it, making it more important than ever for voters to act -- and to choose Bianco.

I read that article last night, make it really made me green in the face. But at least the title is not, "Racial Separatist running for judge as Ron Paul Republican"

I don't know anything about this case, but is it too far fetched to believe that racism like any other misguided prejudice can be corrected when correct principles are found and adhered to?

Wow, that Johnson fellows a real bastard. Aside from party officials trying to get us to give up our principles, we also have to be on the lookout for opportunist in the midst.

Yet they are targeting Obama in the racism choir. Take a look at this, they just ignored what McCain's or Killary's pastors are like. You may send this to some obama supporter and teach them what is an e-mail bomb.

why doesn't anyone vet the statements of Hillary Clinton's or John McCain's ministers? More importantly, why doesn't McCain have to explain the support provided to him by evangelical super-Israel-patriot, John Hagee, who believes Israel and the US should attack Iran, hates the Catholic Church (the "Great Whore")

you can also google > catholic+McCain+"great whore"

I heard a radio talk show guy imply Paul supporters are racist as well. Completly unsbustantiated, ignorant trash.

Can't say that I detected any racism in my dealings with Bill.

he wrote the racial exclusion as a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution and a 1985 book supporting it
No idea what this means.

It's politics, just ignore it. Let's not worry about our reputation and persist with our freedom agenda.

The usual smear campaign, guilt by association, big lie, etc.

At least as a Buchanan supporter I'm no longer a Nazi.

Thank the gods this reporter can identify a real racist as opposed to a bigot or someone that has prejudice. This is unlike most of the journalist, reporter and talk show host out there today.

It is a shame that O! can have a 20 year relationship with a bigot and no one cares and talks about how great he is when he rebukes some of his 'former' pastor's teaching yet Dr. Paul is responsible for this character that is a small time playa with little or no influence outside his inner circle.

The LA Times just about makes up things out of whole cloth and should be sued.
