The Senate Ethics Committee on Friday dismissed complaints against Democratic Sens. Chris Dodd (Conn.) and Kent Conrad (N.D.) over their participation in Countrywide Financial Corp.’s VIP lending program.
But the panel cautioned the senators that they should have “exercised more vigilance” in their dealings with the mortgage giant to avoid an appearance of preferential treatment.
Well Chris, just because your Senate colleagues cleared you, doesn't mean the VOTERS will come November. Enjoy that Irish "Cottage" buddy.
