Former U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd wasn't out of the Washington spotlight for long

...The MPAA announced that Dodd, long rumored to be in the running for the reported $1.2 million position, was hired as its chairman and CEO. His first day on the job will be March 17 -- St. Patrick's Day. Dodd, first elected to the Senate in 1981, chose not to run for re-election last fall in what analysts predicted would be a difficult race...

Glad to see Chris was able to pick something up to supplement his taxpayer funded medical benefits and pension. $1.2 million a year is not a lot of extra scratch when you live in CT.

Amen.
Dodd is very familiar with theater and motion picture due to his great acting career. Played CT Clown for far too many years.

I pretty much agree. The Dodd/Franks Act that the rich Republicans that rule our country are gutting by cutting off funding was one good thing Dodd had something to with.

That is after Dodd looked the other way on fraudulant predatory lending untl he received his gratuitous intrest rate...Dodd and Frank both suck...Dodd and his former buddy the Late crook Kennedy were 2 poor excuses for Democratic drunkard doo doo...Dodd is and will always be nothing but a DUDD
