Were Laws Broken?

The charges against Chris Dodd continue to pile up. It started with the sweetheart Countrywide Mortgages, then the “cottage” in Ireland, the association with a convicted felon, the AIG bonus “lie”, and finally word that his wife once collected a paycheck from an AIG company.

No wonder Senator Christopher Dodd (D-Conn) went wobbly last week when asked about his February amendment ratifying hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses to executives at insurance giant AIG. Dodd has been one of the company’s favorite recipients of campaign contributions. But it turns out that Senator Dodd’s wife has also benefited from past connections to AIG as well.

From 2001-2004, Jackie Clegg Dodd served as an “outside” director of IPC Holdings, Ltd., a Bermuda-based company controlled by AIG.
