Dodd on Mortgage, Re-Election

WFSB has a video short (scroll down to see the video) on his health care event today. He seemed reluctant to answer questions about his mortgage, but did suggest that he may release his mortgage documents sooner rather than later, and perhaps without waiting for a Senate ethics investigation to conclude.

Dennis House also reports that Dodd indicated he would be running for re-election. How will this influence Richard Blumenthal’s thinking?

  1. Does anyone know how long a typical Senate investigation takes?

    Should we expect a final report before November 2010?

    Btw, the Senate may be too busy to investigate Dodd. After all, they have that mean, nasty Sen. Tom Coburn who insists on doing work pro-bono work as an ObGyn for low-income women in Oklahoma. And such evils may be a higher priority for The Gang of 100 than anything Dodd did.

  2. suggest that he may release his mortgage documents sooner rather than later,

    Sooner that … what?

  3. Does anyone know how long a typical Senate investigation takes?

    Depends on what’s there. If it doesn’t look good, these things can take time. Same rules apply in the House. Nancy Pelosi said the Ramgel tax inquiry would be completed before the new session. But, you know, these things take time.

  4. Sooner that … what?

    Sooner than the 2010 election.

    But remember… that wasn’t a promise!

  5. If the investigation concludes in January 2011, then the documents will be released no later than December 2010.

    If the investigation concludes in January 2017, then the documents will be released no later than December 2016.

  6. Peter Schiff to take Dodd’s Connecticut Senate Seat

    Support Peter Schiff 2010

    Want to fix the economy? Hire an economist. No bailouts!

    Come make a pledge to support Peter.

    Because no economist has ever been proven wrong before?

  8. This Schiff2010 thing is, apparently, a scam. Nobody knows who’s running it — the site is anonymously registered. Schiff has no plans of running.

    You should probably ban Schiff2010 from CLP before people get ripped off.

    Translation: I can’t figure out who’s running it.

    Translation: Looks like some rich guy might run against our poor dear misunderstood Dodd so we should ban them right away!

    So why don’t you tell us, then?

  11. So why don’t you tell us, then?

    I haven’t clue one either – but considering the number of sites on the `net; I fail to see why anyone would even care.

    Unless of course one subscribes to the school of thought that agrees with:
    “I saw it on the internet so it must be true”

    So why don’t you tell us, then?

    Do you contribute anything besides witty retorts to this site?

    That’s a rhetorical question, right?

    The whole point was that Schiff is not actually running. It even says so in the disclaimer at the bottom of the schiff2010 site. In fact, there doesn’t even seem to be a Peter Schiff registered to vote in Connecticut.

    Not that any of that will stop the CTGOP from nominating the guy, of course. So donate until it hurts, guys!

    Schiff’s dad is in jail as a tax protestor.

    That will go over well…

    That’s a rhetorical question, right?

    Of course, that’s why I said “you,” because I was really referring to myself…

  17. That will go over well…

    He is???

    Hot dog!

    That Schiff is just the guy then!

    Thanks for the heads up!
