Michael D. Antonovich Biography

Title:
Supervisor in the Fifth District Los Angeles County
Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“For the ACLU to use the stormtrooper tactics of the Gestapo or the KGB to irradicate [the] historical fact [that Los Angeles was founded by Catholic missionaries from Spain], is doing an injustice to the next generation, and an injustice to the history of the United States of America.”
