Senate Ethics Committee Dismisses Complaint Against Dodd


But after nearly two years of investigations, the ethics committee reportedly did not find sufficient evidence that Dodd violated ethics rules. Dodd said in a statement that he "appreciated" the Senate's cooperation in making its decision.

"Even in corrupt Washington, the Ethics Committee's despicable handling of the Dodd matter is about as bad it gets," said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, in a statement. "No wonder Congress's approval rating is just 13%, an all-time low."
