Irvine Council Members Beth Krom and Larry Agran were caught apparently disrespecting the U.S. National Anthem at a recent Irvine City Council meeting. Irvine City Commissioner Allan Bartlett posted the picture above on his Facebook page.
Bartlett stated “I guess it’s too much to expect Larry Agran and Beth Krom to show a little respect during the playing of the National Anthem before the start of the council meeting.”
The protocol when the National Anthem is played is “all present except those in uniform should stand at
attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart,” according to the Daily Flag.
Agran was once arrested while running for the U.S. Presidency when he tried to crash a Presidential debate that he was not invited to. That unfortunate and uncivil event was captured forever in the image below:
Both Krom and Agran are liberal Democrats.
