Donating to the Dead

Chris Dodd's ridiculous campaign for the presidency is getting more solvent now that he lost. Apparently Dodd is managing to effortlessly rake in the cash to settle his campaign debt.

The Hartford Courant reports that Dodd pulled in over $77,000 in May, and keeps on going. He concluded his campaign with a roughly $400,000 debt.

The article explains that Dodd, and his powerful position as Banks chairman, is able to cash in on his power and influence to collect money for a campaign long dead.

This influence-vending is what is chiefly responsible for his Countrywide Financial Corp. scandal, where he received reduced-rate mortgages on his homes in Connecticut and Washington D.C. due to his "VIP" status.

Countrywide gave Dodd $10,000 during the campaign. Unfortunately, they gave nothing after Dodd dropped out of the race.

Dodd did manage to get an impressive $500 from Jack Nicholson, suggesting he did dance with the Devil in the pale moon light.
Never rub another man's rhubarb!
