Main Topic A Majority of Californians Approve of Gay Marriage 10 MIN, 40 SEC
Last week’s poll by the LA Times and KTLA found a majority of voters opposed to same-sex marriage. That was good news for a constitutional amendment on the November ballot, but the Field Poll out today got a different result. By 51 to 42 percent, voters said gays and lesbians have the right to marry.

Reporter's Notebook The Stealth Judicial Candidate 5 MIN, 59 SEC
On LA County’s ballot next week, one candidate to become a judge reportedly advocated deporting all non-white people from the United States. He was writing under the name James O. Pace. In 1989, running for Congress in Wyoming, he used the name Daniel Johnson. The Associated Press called him a “white supremacist.” Now, he’s running for judge under yet another name, Bill Johnson—identifying himself as “international corporate attorney.”
