So much for Dodd's political career. It turns out that the loophole allowing AIG executives to collect millions in bailout bonuses was written and slipped into the legislation at the last minute by Dodd, who at first vehemently denied having anything to do with it, but now has to admit his responsibility after being confronted with strong evidence in his disfavor. An additional complication is that AIG had given him significantly more in campaign contributions than they did to Obama, which Dodd now says he will return or give to charity. The same thing he said after being confronted with the contributions he received from Countrywide, which gave him favorable treatment he says he knew nothing about.
Looks like he's going to have one more empty bubble on election day.
