But anyway, here's a sweet little piece from Judical Watch, a NON-PARTISAN watchdog group who's got you in their sights as well they should. As I happened to mention to one of your aides the other day, I am COMMITTED to see you O U T of office in November...nothing personal, mind you...I just happen to HATE corruption:
From the Desk of Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton:VOTE ALL INCUMBENTS OUT....THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS! It's our ONLY change for survival here and even that's a little "iffy."
Judicial Watch Announces List of Washington's "Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians" for 2009
Please accept my wishes for a Happy New Year. As many of you know, it has become something of a New Year's tradition for Judicial Watch to comb through its files for the year to determine which politicians earn the dubious distinction of being the most corrupt in Washington. The following is Judicial Watch's 2009 "top ten" list in alphabetical order:
- Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CT): This marks two years in a row for Senator Dodd, who made the 2008 "Ten Most Corrupt" list for his corrupt relationship with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and for accepting preferential treatment and loan terms from Countrywide Financial, a scandal which still dogs him. In 2009, the scandals kept coming for the Connecticut Democrat. In 2009, Judicial Watch filed a Senate ethics complaint against Dodd for undervaluing on his Senate Financial Disclosure forms a property he owns in Ireland. Judicial Watch's complaint forced Dodd to amend the forms. However, press reports suggest the property to this day remains undervalued. Judicial Watch also alleges in the complaint that Dodd obtained a sweetheart deal for the property in exchange for his assistance in obtaining a presidential pardon (during the Clinton administration) and other favors for a long-time friend and business associate. The false financial disclosure forms were part of the cover-up. Dodd remains the head the Senate Banking Committee.
