Joe Escalante, Bassist der kalifornischen VANDALS, knadidiert jüngst für einen Posten als Richter in Los Angeles.
"I am on the June 5, 2012 ballot in L.A. County to get a seat on the Superior Court Bench. I have been a Volunteer Temporary Judge since 2009, logging hundreds of hours each year presiding over small claims, traffic, unlawful detainer, limited civil, and limited criminal matters. I'm good at it, but if I ever want to get paid for it, I have to be elected officially. That's where you come in. If you live in L.A. County, register to vote and consider me. :) Thank You."
