    Grand Forks school board candidate seeks racial purity
    Director of the white nationalist party wants voice in public schools.
    By Dan Browning Star Tribune June 4, 2018

    It's a rare school board candidate who brings together issues like Nichiren Buddhism, the Ku Klux Klan, the Church of Scientology, the John Birch Society, racial purity, neo-Nazism, refugee and immigration policy, Common Core education standards and President Donald Trump.
    But James "Jamie" Kelso does it.

    Kelso is an ardent Trump fan, but his beliefs evolved long ago. He was born in New York and graduated from high school in Pacific Palisades, Calif. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, he got deeply involved in Transcendental Meditation and then Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism before joining the Church of Scientology. He rose quickly, joining the group's elite "Sea Organization," which recruits new members. He left abruptly in 1973.

    "My entire career in Scientology was based on chasing a skirt," Kelso said. "I was 19 years old and got the hots for a girl who wanted to go into Scientology."

    Kelso said he quit the church after concluding that its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, was "insane." He later became a "really gung-ho" member of the arch-conservative John Birch Society, which he said he still loves. In 1976, he ran for Congress in Missouri after noticing that the Kansas City Star published a voter's guide that profiled candidates. He advocated ending the income tax, abolishing Social Security, withdrawing from the United Nations and ending government control of education.

    David Wallechinsky and Michael Medved wrote a book about their classmates at a high school in California which also became a TV series, called "The Class of 65", and lo and behold Jamie Kelso was one of their classmates.

    In a chapter devoted to his life after leaving the school, he talked about his time in the Sea Org and his engineering a blow from it. As he said (from memory), "I was supposed to have attained enlightenment. But I realised I had nothing ... I had been had in a shell game."
