Chris Dodd and "the company he keeps": Countrywide's Angelo Mozilo

From Rob Simmons' campaign:

Dear [Your Blog Host],

They say you can tell a lot about a man by the company he keeps.

Yesterday, Angelo Mozilo of Countrywide Mortgage -- the one who gave Senator Dodd his infamous "Friends of Angelo" loan -- was charged with fraud by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

More than a year after Senator Dodd's sweetheart loan from Angelo Mozilo was uncovered, more questions than answers remain.

Senator Dodd promised to release all the documents relating to his $800,000 loans and has failed to do so. In February, he invited a select group of reporters to his office for a few minutes to skim through 100 pages of documents, but not copy or remove them!

It's time for Chris Dodd to come clean about his VIP mortgage from Angelo Mozilo. Please click here to send a message to Senator Dodd demanding full disclosure of his "Friends of Angelo" documents.

Incredibly, Senator Dodd continues to claim that he had no idea that the loan -- which saved him $75,000 -- was being used by the nation's #1 subprime lender to buy influence.

If Senator Dodd expects us to believe that, he should post these documents online for public review -- and clear the air once and for all.

When a corporate tycoon charged with fraud is involved in an influence-peddling scheme with a U.S. Senator, citizens deserve nothing less than the full truth. Please join me in sending a strong, united message that it's time for full disclosure about Chris Dodd's friendship with Angelo Mozilo.

All the best,

Rob Simmons
