“Politcial gadfly” Michael Carreon, a resident of Los Angeles’ 14th council district objected to the rules of decorum at a City Council meeting on Tuesday, April 10, accusing Councilman Tom LaBonge, chair of the meeting, of being dictatorial, the Los Angeles Times is reporting.

Carreon, a regular commenter at such meetings, reportedly said: “The city’s going to hell in a handbasket, and you’re going to sit up there and dictate,” according to The Times. “Now I’m confused on where I’ve got to go, I’m upset, so I guess I’ll just salute you.” Then he raised his hand and said “Heil Hitler.”

Councilman Paul Koretz, who is Jewish, threatened to have Carreon evicted, but no such action was taken.
