Not the first name to list as a reference, it seems

“Go after him with a knife and fork,” Bruce C. Bridgman told TPM when reached by phone.
Now semi-retired, Birdgman heads a firm, The Law Office of Bruce C. Bridgman, that in 2002 briefly employed Matthew Gregory McLaughlin, who has been unreachable since news broke of his now-infamous "Sodomite Suppression Act."

"My own personal opinion here is that he has crossed the line, between free speech and advocating illegal conduct," Bridgman, a former deputy district attorney for both Los Angeles and Orange County, told TPM.

Despite his outrageous proposal, McLaughlin's past remains foggy: Aside from another failed ballot initiative in 2004 — lobbying to make the Bible required reading in public schools — he hasn't made much of a splash in Orange County since he began his practice in 1998. The State Bar website says that his license remains active.
