My California correspondent weighs in:
A few weeks ago I told everyone about the elections in district 32 California state senate race which was held on March 12. The results reveal that there was no clear winner so there will be a runoff election on May 14. I have contacted the candidates in the race,Paul Leon and Norma Torres. I have received no reply. Here is that letter:
I was just reading at the Daily Bulletin Website about the election results: http://www.dailybulletin.com/news/ci_22777447/torres-leon-grab-early-leads-state-senate-race?source=rss
I believe I may be able to shine some light on what happened: http://mensrightsboard.blogspot.com/2013/03/boycott-vote.html
Now will you take our concerns seriously. If you have a feminist advisor that is telling you to ignore us you are getting some very bad advice.
Want our votes? Answer my questions. Here is the original letter:
I am a men's rights activist or MRA and I advocate for men's issues and concerns. I was just at your website and I was wondering where you stand on issues that effect men. For instance:
1. When men and women are arrested for the same crime the man receives a harsher sentence than the woman or if she has teamed up with a man she can play the victim and testify against him even though they are equals. Not only that but when the death penalty is on the table women are spared the death penalty while men are not. Also women's prisons are much nicer than men's prisons. Does this sound fair to you? It doesn't to us.
2. When it comes to anti-male laws such as VAWA only men are arrested and prosecuted while female batterers go free,also male victims are ignored. Does this sound fair to you? It doesn't to us.
VAWA does occur at the state level as the following video will demonstrate:
I'm sure while campaigning you've met a lot of new people. Have you met Brian Banks:
There are lots of other California men in prison based on some trumped up rape charge and because of rape shield laws they are unable to ferret out the true nature of their accusers.
If elected will you address and correct these inequalities and injustices men face?
Here are some men's rights sites:

Unless they respond I'm not voting and I hope others join me.
I don't blame you,bro. I would sit this one out just you advocated last time. I certainly wouldn't cast a ballot for misandric candidates and I hope others in that district feel the same way.
