Chris Dodds Corrupt Background

Chris DoddIt's interesting to note that Chris Dodd's father was a Senator from Connecticut. Why is this important? He was censured by the Senate for using campaign funds for personal purposes. He is lucky enough to be one of only 2 Senators ever censured (the other being Joseph McCarthy).

Chris Dodd has no corrupt background. Saying that Chris Dodd is responsible for the actions of his father is like saying George Bush Senior is responsible for George W. Bush's cocaine use.

Chris Dodd should be and IS (read the congressional record, May 15, 2007) proud of his father's achievement and anyone who reads your post should be just as indignant as I am at your cheap shot.

..And since you opened the door to Chris Dodd's family history - chew on this...

In 1934 U.S. Attorney General Homer Cummings, another Connecticut native, was so impressed with Dodd's work at Yale that he convinced the young attorney to join the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Dodd became a Special Agent and participated in the apprehension of such notorious criminals as John Dillinger, "Babyface" Nelson, and the Bremer kidnappers.

In 1935 Dodd was appointed Director of the National Youth Administration for Connecticut, a position future president Lyndon B. Johnson held for Texas. The NYA aimed to create educational and employment opportunities for young people struggling through the Great Depression. Dodd served as a delegate to the 1936 Democratic national convention. His meteoric rise continued in 1938 with entry into the U.S. Justice Department as a Special Assistant to the Attorney General. He played a pivotal role in the creation of the department's first Civil Rights Division. Dodd's more noteworthy cases included prosecuting the Ku Klux Klan in South Carolina and defending labor's right to organize and bargain collectively in Georgia.

During World War II, Dodd handled cases involving espionage and sabotage that helped cripple Nazi fifth column efforts to destabilize the United States war effort. His work led to the convictions of Reverend Kurt Molzahn, Wilhelm Kunge, Otto Willimanti, and Count Anostase Vonsiatsky on spying charges. Dodd also helped uncover industrial fraud by American firms supplying military hardware, including such New England companies as Anaconda Wire and Cable, Collyer Insulated Wire, Arrow Machine Tool, and Lincoln Machine.

As the war ended, the Allied Powers prepared to convene a military tribunal to prosecute accused Nazi war criminals. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson, the head of the American legal team, requested that Dodd join the jurists assembling at Nuremberg, Germany. Dodd served as Vice-Chairman of the Review Board and Executive Trial Counsel. The latter position rendered Dodd the second ranking U.S. lawyer and s supervisor of the day-to-day management of the U.S. prosecution team. He shaped many of the strategies and policies through which this unprecedented trial took place and frequently dealt with other Allied legal notables such as Sir David Maxwell-Fyfe of Great Britain and Lieutenant General Roman Rudenko of the Soviet Union. Dodd concentrated upon proving the charge of conspiracy to wage aggressive war and consequently cross-examined German industrialists as well as military and political leaders. He reconstructed the will of the last president of the Weimar Republic, Paul von Hindenburg, to reveal that the Nazis had falsified this document to help justify Chancellor Adolph Hitler's consolidation of power.

Well then I take your point. He isn't his father. I have nothing nice to say regarding either and so will end my comment here.

Actually, he is his father.

It's time to clean house, there should be term limits and Dodd can't be trusted. He became a resident of Iowa, left the State of Connecticut for over a year to pursue his dream has lead the Banking Committeee down the drain and lied about his "perks' with Countrywide it's time to say Goodbye to Chris Dodd.

Read an article on the internet by Michael Rozeff dated 3/28/07. His statement two years ago concerning Dodd's associations with National catastrophies place Dodd in disgraceful company. If Connecticut reelects Dodd, then they deserve what they get... a Senator who take as much money as he can while assuming no responsibility for his (or her, in Nancy Pelosi's case)actions, at the total expense of virtually all Americans.

The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and 'skin' the site in such a way that with very little effort one would never notice what it is making the site tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.
