Not many people pay attention to judicial elections, especially one held in June, and it’s for that reason that some Angelenos are worried about the campaign of William Johnson. A white separatist, Johnson is apparently counting on a lack of attention and the support of Ron Paul’s local organization to help him to victory.
The story was first reported by the Los Angeles Metropolitan News-Enterprise, which revealed that Johnson had advocated a constitutional amendment limiting citizenship to whites of European extraction. The L.A. Times has produced a couple of blog posts and an editorial, but the election remains mostly ignored and unreported.
Here’s where Ron Paul comes in: According to the Times editorial, Johnson was active in Paul’s campaign for president. Indeed, Johnson’s candidacy is on the agenda for a June meeting of “The Los Angeles Ron Paul 2008 Meetup Group” to be held in the conference room of Johnson’s office. Judging by the comments on the L.A. Times Web site, it seems Johnson has been presented to voters (including Paul supporters) as Libertarian-leaning.
These are the kinds of elections, the Times points out, that sometimes turn on whether voters like a candidate’s name or their occupation.

A RACIAL SEPARATIST FOR JUDGE?
JUNE RON PAUL LOS ANGELES MEETING
This information should really make us all sit up and take notice of all those (maybe) unfamiliar names for this or that judicial post when we go to the polls in November! It's not just the presidential election, or who is running for governor, the Senate, or the House from each of our states. We need to be aware of who ELSE is running...and for WHAT.
We'll hold our January meeting in a conference room at Bill Johnson's office. We'll discuss topics such as the following:
-Stop Real ID in California
-Ron Paul Book grassroots distribution project
-Tax Day '08
-Bill Johnson for Judge
-More of your ideas and projects...
-Screening of movie: "Network"
