Michael D. Antonovich Biography

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

“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.”
