If you haven’t already read Hillel Aron’s profiles of the District 6 candidates Monica Ratliff and Antonio Sanchez on the campaign trail this past weekend, be sure and do so here and here.

Did you know, however, that one of the two candidates was in a 2012 Nazi revenge film (straight to DVD) and the other was an antiwar protester whose image was featured by the LA Times?

Click below for the images and some of the details.

First, there’s a young Antonio Sanchez, protesting against the war in Iraq in 2003 and captured by the LA TImes:
