Biography[edit]

Born in Fresno, California, Bramblett graduated from Stanford University and was in the insurance business. He was elected mayor of Pacific Grove, California.[1] In 1954 he was convicted of padding his office payroll to conceal kickbacks. Bramblett, a four-term lawmaker, was fined $5,000 and given a suspended two- to four-month jail sentence.[2][3]
