    >Perhaps he'll reconsider when one of these vultures grabs him unexpectedly and he becomes a victim. I hear California is one of the states out of control with guardianship abuse.

    >Bill Lockyer's office did nothing when a Rep. Payee working for the County of Riverside,California stole our fathers money and let his health decline into malnutrition and not pay his bills,the money went into her pocket.His office ignored the formal complaint and did nothing.Bill Lockyer should have been impeached and she should have went to jail.Hopefully she will go to jail when Jerry Brown is governor.
