Dodd May Break His Promise Not to Lobby

Former Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., who was named head of the Motion Picture Association of America this week, says he may end up lobbying in the post, despite his promise last year not to do so, The Hill reports.

“We’ll cross that road in the future. I realize it’s part of the job. We’ll confront that at some point. In the meantime, I’ll be living by the letter of the law,” Dodd said. Senators are legally prohibited from contacting their former colleagues on behalf of a client for two years after leaving office.
