An aide to former Rep. Mervyn Dymally has been charged in connection with an alleged scam in which authorities say he stole $63,000 from 21 victims who paid him to obtain loans they never received. Michael Jerome Robbins, 55, of Los Angeles, told the victims--most of whom live in the San Fernando Valley--that he would use his influence as Dymally's aide to get them low-interest loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration, Deputy City Atty. Don Kass said.
