Ethics Panel Clears Dodd in Countrywide Refinancing (Update1)


http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...d=abI_D6KRx47U


Aug. 7 (Bloomberg) -- The Senate Ethics Committee said Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd of Connecticut and fellow Democrat Kent Conrad of North Dakota didn’t violate ethics rules in refinancing their home mortgages with Countrywide Financial Corp.

The panel said it found “no substantial credible evidence” that the mortgages violated Senate ethics rules.

Even so, the committee, which includes equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans, said both senators should have “exercised more vigilance” to “avoid the appearance” of preferential treatment.

Dodd, ranked as the most vulnerable incumbent Democratic senator by Congressional Quarterly, claimed vindication.

“There was no ‘sweetheart’ or special deal; the allegations are and have always been false,” Dodd said in a statement. “I hope that today’s dismissal will go a long way towards restoring the bond of trust and confidence that I’ve worked long and hard to build with the people of our state.”

A phone call to Conrad’s office wasn’t immediately returned.
