from Senate Ethics Committee Will Not Punish Sen Dodd for Corrupt Real Estate Deal; Dismisses JW's Ethics Complaint

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that on December 20, 2010, the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics (commonly known as the Senate Ethics Committee) dismissed a Judicial Watch ethics complaint filed against outgoing Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CT). Judicial Watchs complaint alleges Dodd assisted a longtime friend and associate to obtain a reduced sentence and ultimately a full presidential pardon from President Clinton for tax and securities crimes, in exchange for gifts, including a sweetheart mortgage deal that he failed to properly disclose on his Senate Financial Disclosure forms.
