How Big Finance is trying to keep the Senate banking chairman's imperiled political career afloat. __ As Senator Chris Dodd fights for his political career, the embattled chairman of the powerful Senate banking committee is receiving his own economic rescue package from the finance industry. According to the five-term senator's latest campaign disclosures, filed earlier this week, the financial sector is flooding Dodd's campaign war chest with donations in advance of what is expected to be a tough reelection bout.

I've posted at least 6 stories just tonight from liberal sources outlining unprecedented levels of corruption.
he has collected less than $5,000 in his home state and more than $600,000 from out of state in the past 3 months
Press harder, DO MORE!!!
Make them bleed!

Out of State....or OUT OF COUNTRY????
I dunno... I assumed it was bailout funds
between all of the brain dead liberals in CT, the money that the bankers will funnel into his campaing, and ACORN(holers) he will be re-elected.
is anyone else interested in how much these bailed out firms are donating to Democrats and leftist causes? after the bailout
We will never know where all the TARP bailout money will end up. But you can bank that a lot of it will end up as campaign money and nest eggs in Cayman Island numbered accounts.
I think in the not to distant future Obama will have his own personal scandal to worry about. As the tension in society grows they may look to take the steam out of it by exposing Obamas complicity in the rigging of the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board. This will also open the door to the fraudulent activity surrounding the election. They have already rolled up Rezko and Levine and Weinstein and Blago. About the only name left on the list of names of the big players involved in the corruption of the IHFP board is Obamas. There is evidence in the public record of the part he played in rigging the board in the form of Ill Senate Bill 1332 which reduced the number of board members from 15 to 9. This was done so his cronies could control the board with 5 votes instead of 8. Then there is the the corruption involving the Teachers Retirement System which a lot of the same players were involved in. Now I’m not saying they will take him from the White House in handcuffs or anything. These processes of exposure by slow drip and their outcomes usually take a couple of years. If they do start whispering about it I think it will be before the end of the year though.
Mother Jones aiming at Dodd. LOL!
I think that Chris Dodd is on his way to retirement. This article was published in Mother Jones, not known for its conservative leanings.
Mother Jones, who’d have thought.
Dodd needs to be retired at the general election or there goes our best opportunity to take a Dem Senate seat we haven’t won since 1956 (with Dubya’s grandfather Prescott).
I’m with you, hoping that Dodd pulls a Stevens/Conrad/Hutchinson next year.

So, which Repub is warming up in the bullpen in Conn?
