Dodd Named Hollywood’s Top LobbyistBy Brody Mullins and Elizabeth Williamson
Former Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut is Hollywood’s new man in Washington.
Mr. Dodd inked a deal this morning to become the new president of the Motion Picture Association of America, according to sources close to the process.
Mr. Dodd, who had been the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee and oversaw the passage of broad new regulations for the financial services industry, retired from the Senate earlier this year when his fifth term expired.
He edged out several other high profile politicians, including former Republican Rep. Tom Davis of Virginia and former Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico.
