  • After being convicted of bribery charges that came from the Shrimpscam investigation, State Senator Alan Robbins commented on the honesty demonstrated by Gregorio; "Probably the best example I know of a legislator who refused special- interest money is the former state Sen. Arlen Gregorio, who represented San Mateo and Santa Clara counties from 1970 to 1978. Gregorio refused to accept any contributions over $100. As a result, he was ostracized by his colleagues, who sat on their hands when it came to raising money for him until it was too late and he was defeated for re-election. "
