The Senator sends a thank you letter to a supporter
Typed Letter signed: "Ed Gurney", as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1975 January 7. On Judiciary Committee letterhead to Danny Franklin, Phoenix, Arizona. In full: "I am deeply grateful for your belief in and support of me in my Senate work and your words of encouragement for the future. Sincerely yours". Edward Gurney (1914-1996), who had reached the rank of Lt. Colonel in action in the European theater of World War II, represented Florida in the U.S. House of Representatives (1963-1969) and Senate (1969-1974). Young George W. Bush worked on his victorious Senate campaign. Gurney served on the Senate Select Committee (1973) investigating the Watergate scandal, which drove President Nixon from office. In this role he strongly supported the President, but was soon distracted by his own legal difficulties. Gurney, did not seek re-election in 1974. He faced two trials in 1975-1976 on charges of bribery, perjury and conspiracy related to illegal campaign contributions. He was acquitted on six charges, with the jury deadlocked on two more. In 1978, he sought to return to the House of Representatives, but was defeated by future Senator Bill Nelson. Fine condition.
