Mervyn Dymally Endorses
The Homeowners and Bank Protection Act of 2007

September 20, 2007 (EIRNS)—The Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee (LPAC) issued the following release today.

California State Assemblyman Mervyn Dymally has endorsed the Homeowner and Bank Protection Act of 2007, and added his name as an endorser of Pennsylvania Rep. Harold James' resolution in support of the HBPA. Dymally is currently the Chairman of the Legislative Black Caucus. In a distinguished career in politics now in its fifth decade, Dymally has been a trailblazer. He was elected Lt. Governor of California in 1974 - the first African-American elected to statewide office; and was elected to the U.S. Congress in 1980, serving as Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus. As Chairman, he took on the FBI's "Fruehmenschen" program of targeting African-American elected officials. After a brief period of "retirement," he was elected to the California State Assembly in 2002.
