Well … thanks to Kevin Rennie we have a better idea of what Dodd’s Irish cottage looks like … hmmm … 200,000 … while condos go for three times that …
Make sure you go to real time investigations for more on changes that need to be made in Senate disclosure rules.
Note that Dodd doesn’t disclose the owners of the other 2/3s of his Irish “cottage” — nor is he required to. Shouldn’t we know who politicians are buying properties with? Given the number of members who’ve run into ethical questions regarding homes and vacation homes (Sen. Ted Stevens, Rep. Charlie Rangel and Rep. Alan Mollohan spring immediately to mind) shouldn’t we have more disclosure about member’s real property?
Hat tip Instapundit.
This thing is picking up steam.
Update (Wyndeward): For those interested in looking into the Irish market … http://www.myhome.ie/.
Update 2 (Jim): I just went. One look and you will see … that ain’t no $200,000 home, not now, not in 2002, not when St. Patrcik drove the snakes from the island.
