Apparently, Robert Allen Stanford didn't leave an impression on Senator Christopher Dodd, even though he donated thousands of dollars to his campaign.
"I don't remember meeting him but I am told I did back in 2001 or 2001. I don't remember the event but we went back in the records and looked and he was at an event, a fundraiser, I believe, that's right." Dodd said today as he looked to his staffer for confirmation.
Dodd was in Hartford today speaking to students at Weaver High School about the Economy, the Stimulus Package and Governor Jodi Rell's proposed budget cuts. That's where we caught up with him to get the latest on Stanford who is accused of bilking investors out of billions.
"I certainly didn't know in 2001 or 2002 that I was talking to someone or in a room with someone who was going to end up being, to put it mildly, a problem!" Dodd said today after the high school event.
That's why Dodd says he will donate the money he received from Stanford to charity. Dodd says he received $3,000 from Stanford himself and $27,000 from employees who worked for Stanford at his financial company.
