Former Sen. Gurney-
aide admits giving
$10,000 to Iafalis
TAMPA, Fla. (/)-Former Sen. Edward Gurney's onetime
chief aide told a federal jury yesterday that three days before the
1972 general election he handed Congressman L. A. "Skip" Bafalis
$10,000 in a men's room. James Groot said the $10,000, which
Bafalis never renorted, came from Gurney's safe and was money
raised illegally by Gurney fund raiser Larry Williams through
shakedowns of blilding contractors.
"I gave him the $10,000," Groot, a former codefendant, testi-
fied under cross-examination in the bribery conspiracy trial of his
ex-boss and three remaining codefendants.
"I KNOW Mr. Bafalis did not report the money," Groot said.
"I searched the records while oreparing for my case." In Wash-
inton, a snokesman for Bafalis, who was making his first bid
for a coneressional seat in 1972, denied the charge but said the
Florida Rennhlican was prohibited from discussing it because he
had been notified he was a potential prosecution witness.

sence for nearly eighteen
months because of a clerical
error. He said it was not within
his power to force Taylor to re-
turn for treatments after the
first year of his leave. In Ro-
bey's opinion, Taylor was never
"mentally ill."
Ironically, had Taylor not vio-
lated the conditions of his leave,
he would have been eligible for
unconditional release from the
institution.
According to last year's state
Supreme Court ruling, known
as the McQuillen decision, those
committed to state mental in-
stitutions must be proven men-
tally ill and legally dangerous
because of that illness. Taylor

was never certified legally in-
sane.
ROBEY SAID the Taylor af-
fair points up serious problems
for the treatment of sociopathic
people like Taylor, who are not
considered mentally ill.
"They (patients like Taylor)
can go along fine for years, and
after a time you either deny
them their civil rights and take
them over, or you let them go,"
he explained.
Dr. Lynn Blunt, now acting
director of the Center. acknow-
leded ye.terday that he shared
in the decision to release Tay-
ltr of his role S clinical direc-
tar for te institution.

opinion an any release," ex-
plained Blunt.
Blunt said the Taylor case,
in his opinion, speaks to the
necessity of "taking guys like
this and locking them away, or
worse, bt I wouldn't want to
be quoted on that."
ASKED HOW Taylor should
be dealt with, Blunt replied, "I
don't think there is any choice
now."
The Taylor affair is not Ro-
bey's first run-in with the
DMH. In Hay 1974, he drew a
two - week suspension without
nay after the escape of fifteen
Center inmates in three sepa-
rate incidents over a two-week
reriod. According to the DMH,
he failed to follow procedures
in renorting the escapes.
R o B E Y ' S relationship
with acting DMH director Smith
has, according to some, not
been a good one. There have
been reports of infighting over
funding priorities and staffing.
McCall, who described Robey
as "quite flamboyent and ver-
bose," admitted that there has
been friction.
"I suppose you could call it
internal conflicts," said McCall.
ROBEY thinks the basis of
the problem was his "bad
grace" in emphatically calling
Smith's attention to deficiencies
in staff and resources.
Asked if he thought the sus-
pension was politically vindic-
tive, Robey replied, "Let me
put it this way, "this week's
events lead one to wonder."
Robey is not alone in won-
dering. A United Press Inter-
national story yesterday even-
ing quoted two House commit-
tee chairpersons, Rep. Paul
Rosenbaum (D-Battle Creek) of
the judiciary committee and
Rep. Joyce Symons (D-Allen
Park) of the mental health
committee, as charging that Ro-
bey was being made a scape-
goat for the Taylor murders.
Robey said he had."no com-
ment" on the legislators re-
marks. Asked if his no com-
ment implied agreement, he
laughed and replied "You can
imply anything you want."
