The Berkeley Marine flap ain’t over

Conservative group Move America Forward will hold news conferences tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 21, in Sacramento and Berkeley to roll out a new television ad condemning Berkeley City Council for its anti-military stances.

The commercial will run nationwide on cable news channels, and on broadcast network affiliates in the San Francisco Bay Area. Move America Forward said Berkeley City Council’s failure to rescind all of its resolutions against U.S. Marine Corps recruiting, and refusal to apologize, forced its hand.
