  2. Thanks for posting this.

    Dodd's slimy fingers are in every financial industry disaster that's occurred: AIG, FNM, FRE, Countrywide, etc.

    There is no justice if he doesn't get indicted, or at least thrown out of office next year when his term is up.

    He's worse than that Louisiana congressman who got caught with bundles of $100s stuffed into his freezer. Dodd's just more artful in collecting his graft.

    Wasn't his father corrupt and tossed out of the Senate in disgrace? Of course that wont happen with him, this Congress is a den of corruption. I love Rangel's "Don't worry about the allegations against me, we are investigating it, I'll let you know how it turns out."
