Well, it looks as though he may have more trouble than just getting caught trying to buy his way into Dodd's pocket. ABC reports that the feds are "closing in" on him for fraud. Perhaps part of the payback for Cassano for Dodd's fundraising will be a Presidential pardon at the senator's request on Obama's way out, like Dodd did with felon and BFF Edward Downe when Clinton was heading home.
This Hot Air post by Ed Morrissey also raises questions about whether the AIG employees were used as strawmen to funnel cash to Dodd. At this point, I don't think anything would surprise me.
Ed also links to an NRO post describing the first time Dodd created massive, taxpayer funded windfall legislation with the primary beneficiary being AIG.
Like our new lefty leaders love to believe, a crisis is a terrible thing to waste, whether it is an economic downturn or a terrorist attack.
