Joe Escalante (The Vandals) talks about his L.A. county judge campaign

AOL Noisecreep recently sat down for an interview with The Vandals bassist and lawyer Joe Escalante, who talks about his campaign to become a judge in Los Angeles County. He states:

“I’m still smarting from a defending frivolous lawsuit for eight years so I want to effect change. I beat Fulbright & Jaworski and a giant media company that actually owns LexisNexis as well as Variety. They have 900 attorneys in their firm and I beat them in Federal Court, representing me, the band, the members and the record label. Whether I win or lose. I just want my campaign to make a difference. I do. I’ve watched too much corruption go on around me for too long and I really want to make a difference. When voters look at a ballot, they should know who they are voting for and I’m working hard so that they can get to know me. Once they do, I think they’ll realize I deserve it.”

The Vandals haven’t released any new material since 2004’s Hollywood Potato Chip. This was the result of a lawsuit against Variety Magazine, who accused the band of stealing their logo. The lawsuit was eventually resolved last month.
