Title

Letter from Mervyn Dymally to the editor of The California Journal, 1975

Subject

Health Care
Dymally, Mervyn M., 1926-2012

Description

In this letter, Dymally defends his reputation and disputes his involvement in a private company gaining a public health plan for Medi-Cal recipients. Dymally faced harassment in the form of unsubstantiated claims of corruption and supposedly impending indictments of crimes several times throughout his career. While no charges were ever brought against him, he suspected one such incident may have cost him the reelection to Lt. Governor. His opponent Mike Curb accused him of criminal behavior in San Bernardino and Santa Clara Counties. The accusations caused a scandal, but no charges were brought. Curb later apologized to Dymally for the acquisitions, but only after the election.
