Skip to comments.Sen. Dodd calls Pence attack ‘pathetic’
Posted on 03/25/2010 8:25:16 PM PDT by onyx
Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) fired back at House Republicans who questioned his ethics this week, calling the GOP officials who crafted a critical press release pathetic.
The House GOP Conference, headed by Rep. Mike Pence (Ind.), issued a policy paper on its website Tuesday that referred to Dodd as a Friend of Angelo. That is a reference to a special VIP program established by former Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo, who has been charged with civil fraud and insider trading by federal investigators.
The policy paper, titled, Taxpayers should not trust the Friend of Angelo, details what Republicans views as flaws in Dodds financial regulatory reform bill.
While defending himself from the accusation that he acted unethically in accepting a mortgage from Countrywide, Dodd also took issue with the House GOP conference itself.
After being shown the Republican policy paper, Dodd at first sarcastically called the GOP conference a very thoughtful operation.
He then said that while criticisms of his financial regulatory reform bill are fair game, the personal attack is not.
I never met [Mozilo]. Dont know the man at all, Dodd said. The Senate Ethics Committee spent 14 months analyzing it. From what Im told, there were 18,000 documents and it was determined outrageous that there was any suggestion there was any implicit connection. Theyd do better to argue about the bill.
He added, Its a pointless accusation from people who are kind of, you know, pathetic individuals. They always have been. And obviously the record reflects an examination of the question, and the question was answered by Democrats and Republicans unanimously, that there was nothing to the charge.

Mike Pence is a patriot!
Hmmm... The way Dodd is crying, it must have hurt...
Mega Dittos. Mike is the real deal and one of the defenders that will rep. us as we take our country back..
Dodd, attempting to complain about “personal attacks”, calls his opponents “pathetic individuals”.
Of course, the irony/hypocrisy is lost on the liberal media.
Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Countrywide).
Dodd doesn’t like the timing.
He’s all set with his “banking reform” legislation.
Dodd needs to go to jail.
Pence will run for re-election, AND WIN !!
If anyone looks up the word “pathetic” in the dictionary a picture of Chris Dodd will show up!

That is what is so funny. He calls the “attack” pathetic, when everyone and his brother in CN knows he got a sweetheart deal. What is pathetic is that this joker is the head of the finance committee.
He will never escape our reach....
We're going into the museum with him!!
Let him go have a good cry in his new hospital that we just paid for.
GOOD job. I liked one of the comments too.
NO BLUMEN WAY.
I hope that slickmeister doesn’t win.
My stock answer to these dems is to fight back twice as hard on OFFENSE not defense. Ignore the dems pathetic attempts to change the subject and stay focused on the fact they are twarting the will of the people and there will be hell to pay because of THEIR actions. the dems think think we are so stupid to fall for these phoney diversion tactics
Dodd. What more can I say?
Dodd’s an old reprobate.
