Sen. Chris Dodd’s Irish cottage is the subject of a lengthy article in the Courant today. Dodd has apparently learned his lesson from his mortgage scandal, and has released many documents for reporters to examine, and agreed to a lengthy interview. Charges about Dodd’s Irish real estate dealings surfaced in a Kevin Rennie column last weekend.
Dodd will be appearing on Face the State this morning at 11:00am. Potential opponent Rob Simmons will be on The Real Story (The Laurel has the full Sunday talk rundown).
In other real estate news, Gov. Rell is called to task by the Courant for not reducing spending on the governor’s mansion. Interesting tidbit: the governor now apparently spends 90% of her time at the mansion, according to her spokesman. …Really? That’s news to me.
