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.
