    Mervyn Dymally Won't be Missed by Everybody in the Black Community, because Dymally is Also Just as Dysfunctional, Disgraceful, and Treasonous!

    Mervyn Dymally dies at 86; former lieutenant governor, congressman and legislator

    Selected Excerpt:  "At what is now Cal State L.A. he earned the first of several degrees and he became a naturalized American citizen in 1957."

    The Los Angeles Times waited until native of Trinidad Merv "Illegal Alien" Dymally died before publishing the above  statement.

    I've been a taxpaying registered voter in the County of Los Angeles, the 10th Los Angeles City Council District, and the State of California for over thirty years, and this is the first time that it has ever been published that Merv Dymally ever became a U.S. citizen, U.S. citizenship being a prerequisite to even be eligible to hold elected office in any jurisdiction.

    Former Congressman Mervyn Dymally is no loss to all U.S. born blacks in South Central Los Angeles, Compton, etc., etc., because just like so many other elected black leaders, he, Mervyn Dymally had contempt for the oath of office, and the U.S. Constitution, the California Constitution, and he was a traitor to U.S. born black people. Not to mention Dymally's elected black leadership associates, Herb "Wesson Oil "Wesson, betraying "Betty Andrews" former Congresswoman Diane Watson, facing felony criminal indictment voter fraud carpetbagging Rod Wright, Congresswoman Maxine "Kerosene" Waters, Reverend Jim Jones…..Merv Dymally was a good friend of Reverend Jim Jones, etc., etc.

    "Without a tax base (Revenue from businesses, property taxpaying citizens, etc., etc.) slim chance exists that anyone, including police officers would choose to remain in Detroit. Black Detroit also has the highest unemployment rate in the U.S. Believe it or not, there is a relationship between high unemployment and criminal activity. Detroit is also one of multiple cities (Compton, CA, South Central Los Angeles, Inglewood, CA, Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD., etc., etc.) that for decades has had dysfunctional elected black leaders, who have no respect for the oath of office, running government, who have contributed to the demise of Detroit and other cities with a U.S. born black constituency."

    Mervyn Dymally dies at 86; former lieutenant governor, congressman and legislator, The Trinidad-born former teacher blazed trails for minorities in California politics in the 1960s and '70s, served into the '90s and made his latest comeback, to the state Assembly, at age 76.

    by Jean Merl, Los Angeles Times, 10:12 PM PDT, October 7, 2012

    Mervyn M. Dymally, the Trinidad-born former teacher whose ground-breaking if sometimes-controversial political career spanned more than four decades and included a stint as California's only black lieutenant governor, has died. He was 86.

    Dymally, who became a leader in the Los Angeles area's ascendant African American political establishment in the early 1960s and served in both houses of the Legislature and in Congress, died Sunday in Los Angeles, after a period of declining health, his family said.

    "He's opened so many doors. A lot of people have walked through those doors," then-Assembly Speaker Herb Wesson told The Times in early 2003, shortly after Dymally, a decade into his retirement from Congress, returned to the Assembly as its elder statesman. Wesson, now a Los Angeles City Council president, was one of several generations of area Democratic politicians mentored by the man with salt-and-pepper hair and lilting West Indies accent.

    Dymally's political longevity and ability to return time and again to public office had him winning elections well into what for many would have been their retirement years. His latest comeback, at age 76, was perhaps his most dramatic. In 2002, dissatisfied with the potential candidates for the Compton-area Assembly seat he had first won in 1962 and dismayed at the dropping numbers of blacks in the Legislature, Dymally jumped into the race himself and won.

    "You can accomplish things here," Dymally told The Times when he returned to Sacramento shortly before budget crises and extreme partisanship hamstrung state government. "You can see the results of your work."

    The controversies that surrounded him with some regularity over the years could never permanently derail his political career, as several corruption investigations all ended without charges ever being filed. Dymally always said the probes were baseless and politically motivated.

    The end came instead at the hands of a rival nearly 30 years his junior when, termed out of the Assembly in 2008, Dymally, then 82, lost a grueling Democratic primary election for a state Senate seat to Rod Wright. Dymally never really left politics, though, and he continued to advise others from the sidelines and led a health institute at the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science in South Los Angeles. The university's School of Nursing bears his name.

    Cal State L.A. political scientist Raphael J. Sonenshein, who has written extensively about race and politics in the Los Angeles area, called Dymally "a very significant figure" who helped then-Speaker Jesse Unruh forge an effective state political organization with its base in the southern neighborhoods and suburbs of the state's largest city.

    Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Dymally worked with Unruh and used such tools as direct mail, organizing and fundraising to build a political network of working-class blacks that helped send generations of budding Democratic politicians to Sacramento. Sonenshein said Dymally's main rival was Tom Bradley, who won a breakthrough election as mayor of Los Angeles with the help of middle-class blacks and liberal white voters. One of Bradley's competitors in that 1973 election was Unruh.

    "Dymally built one of the most important black political organizations in Los Angeles," Sonenshein said. "He was a very shrewd politician."

    During his career, Dymally worked to improve education and access to health care for his largely working-class, minority constituents. In Congress, he chaired the Congressional Black Caucus and served on the Foreign Affairs Committee. He focused on issues involving U.S. relations with African nations, strongly supported sanctions against South Africa and worked on other international human rights issues.

    In 1990, he came under scrutiny when it was learned a diamond merchant had given $34,000 to a scholarship fund Dymally had founded after the congressman softened his stance on sanctions against South African diamonds. That was not his first brush with controversy. In the late 1970s, investigators looked into allegations that leaders of a Long Beach church had conspired to pay the then-lieutenant governor $10,000 to shield them from a state probe. In the 1980s, questions arose over how he used part of a $100,000 university grant for a research institute he headed. None of those inquiries resulted in criminal charges.

    Mervyn Malcolm Dymally was born May 12, 1926, in Cedros, Trinidad, West Indies, to a Muslim father and a Roman Catholic mother. Dymally later became an Episcopalian. He once told the Los Angeles Sentinel that he had been drifting toward a life as a ne'er-do-well when a book he found about Booker T. Washington inspired him to come to the United States, at age 19, for an education.

    At what is now Cal State L.A. he earned the first of several degrees and he became a naturalized American citizen in 1957. A special education teacher for Los Angeles schools, he got involved in local Democratic Party politics. When he won election to the state Assembly in 1962, he became the first foreign-born black lawmaker elected to the state's lower house. Other firsts followed — first black elected to the state Senate, in 1966, and, when he won the lieutenant governor's race in 1974, first black to serve in a nonpartisan statewide elected office.

    Then, in 1978, he drew a tough re-election challenge from Republican music industry mogul Mike Curb. As the campaign grew increasingly nasty, a Los Angeles television station broadcast a rumor — which later proved false — that Dymally was about to be indicted for an unspecified crime. Dymally blamed the rumor, which was repeated by Curb, for his loss.

    But Dymally bounced back two years later by defeating scandal-plagued Rep. Charles H. Wilson of Hawthorne and former Rep. Mark Hannaford in a bruising Democratic primary and then handily winning election to Congress that fall. Dymally said he decided to get into the race when he learned there would be two white candidates — Wilson and Hannaford — to split that group's votes. He produced a letter from Curb lauding his former rival and expressing regret for the "ill-founded" allegations of wrongdoing that Curb had lodged against Dymally in the lieutenant governor's race. Dymally sewed up black, Asian and Latino votes in the heavily Democratic district. Dymally left it to others to remind voters that Wilson was facing a hearing by the House Ethics Committee on allegations that he used campaign funds for personal use. Two years earlier Wilson had been reprimanded by the House for accepting a $1,000 gift from Korean businessman Tongsun Park.

    "Mark Hannaford can work the conduct," Dymally told The Times as he geared up for the 1980 primary. "I'll work the issues."

    Dymally served six terms before retiring in 1992 at age 65. His daughter, Lynn Dymally, then a Compton school board member, lost a primary race to succeed him.

    Besides his daughter, Dymally is survived by his wife of 44 years, Alice Gueno Dymally; his son, Mark; and three sisters.

    “Yea without sin cast the first stone” Too many Christians forget that pasage. The work Christ did in Paul’s life tells us that anyone can be forgiven. As a Christian our responsibility is to pray for those who repent, forgive them and move on.

    Nothing is too hard for God.  If you were disabled would you want your Boss to fire you? I think not......Jesse deserves to be on the ballot and it’s up to his constitutients. Period. God Bless you Congressman Jackson and your whole family” by Dean

    ….Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr., can be forgiven, but the act of being forgiven for violation of Campaign Contributions does not mean that Jesse Jackson, Jr. will remain in Congress to be paid by taxpayers.

    Finally, Christian Doctrine, the “Bible” has no bearing on the decision of whether Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. will be impeached or remain in office.

    The determination and findings of the Congressional Campaign Finance law and the penalty for being in violation of Federal Law by a Congressional Ethics Committee, and the will of the voters in Congressman Jesse Jackson’s Congressional District will determine the fate of Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.’s public service career.

    Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. like other no good black elected officials should or must be removed from political office and public service.

    ….here on the West Coast, a dysfunctional black community honored no good “native of Trinidad” former Congressman Mervyn “illegal immigrant” Dymally.

    Fault a dysfunctional black electorate using the voting process as a popularity contest as opposed to voting for an elected official who respects the oath of office, our Constitution, and the rule of law.

    http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-858150

    For too long, in the black community, misfits unworthy of praise are promoted and respected as being heroes, a street or park can be named in his or her disgraceful honor…..

    ……while individuals in the black community truly deserving or praise for being competent and honorable are typically “kicked to the curb” and beyond by an unintelligent black community.

    THE JOB OF A CONGRESSMAN

    “There are cases where an individual has been wrongfully treated by his government and about the only way, unless the individual resorts to court, and even in some cases the courts are not able to give proper relief, the only area or avenue open to the individual is through his representative. When you find a bona fide error has been made, I suggest that you make a maximum effort to remedy it. This I feel is a vital and important function of those of us in the House of Representatives”.

    “……Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and Members of several State legislatures (all elected officials), and all executive and judicial Officers of the United States and of the several states, Shall be bound by oath of affirmation, to support this Constitution.
