The Connecticut Mirror, August 30, 2010 - "Dodd Foreswears a Lobbying Career":
WASHINGTON - ” Sen. Chris Dodd says he still doesn't know what he'll do come January 2011, when, for the first time in 36 years, he will no longer be a member of Congress. But he has ruled out one option.
"No lobbying, no lobbying," Dodd said in a recent interview. That Dodd would forgo a trip through Washington's "revolving door," using his policy and political expertise-and a thick Rolodex-to launch a new career in the influence industry, may come as a surprise.
The L.A. Times, yesterday - "MPAA's Chris Dodd takes aim at SOPA strike":
Hollywood's chief lobbyist lashed out at tech companies for mounting Tuesday night's planned online blackout to protest proposed anti-piracy legislation that has pitted Southern California movie and music distributors against Silicon Valley Internet corporations.
Motion Picture Assn. of America Chief Executive Chris Dodd, the former Senator from Connecticut, accused technology companies such as Google, Mozilla and Wikipedia of resorting to stunts. . . .
"It is an irresponsible response and a disservice to people who rely on them for information and who use their services," Dodd said in a statement. "It is also an abuse of power given the freedoms these companies enjoy in the marketplace today."
