Senator Christopher Dodd Investigated For Possible Ethical Improprieties

From the AP:

HARTFORD, Conn. – Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd says he’s awaiting for the conclusion of a Senate ethics inquiry before releasing information to two mortgages he received from Countrywide Financial Corp.

Dodd told reporters in Hartford on Wednesday that he’s willing to make the documents public and thought the inquiry would be completed by now.

Dodd has been criticized for receiving mortgages through a VIP program at Countrywide, a leading subprime lender at the center of the mortgage meltdown. Dodd is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, which has oversight of the mortgage industry.
