Gordon Leo McDonough (January 2, 1895 - June 25, 1968) was a U.S. Representative from California.

Born in Buffalo, New York, McDonough moved with his parents to Emporium, Pennsylvania, in 1898. He attended the public schools and graduated from the high school at Emporium, Pennsylvania. He engaged as an industrial chemist at Emporium, Pennsylvania from 1915 to 1918. He moved to Los Angeles, California, and resumed his former occupation from 1918 to 1933. Married to Catherine McNeil, he raised seven children. He served as member of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors from 1933 to 1944, serving as chairman for one year.

McDonough was elected as a Republican to the Seventy-ninth and to the eight succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1945 - January 3, 1963). He was an unsuccessful candidate for re-election in 1962 to the Eighty-eighth Congress. McDonough voted in favor of the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1960,[1][2] as well as the 24th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.[3]

He died in Bethesda, Maryland, June 25, 1968, and was interred in Holy Cross Mausoleum, Los Angeles, California.
