Ethics Committee Dismisses Complaint against Dodd

The Senate Ethics Committee “has dismissed a complaint alleging that Sen. Christopher Dodd obtained a cottage in Ireland at a low price as an improper gift from a businessman,” the AP reports.

The Connecticut Democrat says the allegations by a conservative group were baseless and politically motivated.

Judicial Watch questioned last year whether the price Dodd paid for the seaside home in County Galway was so low that it amounted to a gift from real estate businessman Edward "Bucky" Kessinger.

The committee said the evidence does not support the allegations. Dodd said in his statement late Wednesday that he appreciates the committee’s conclusion.
