Dodd May Become Lobbyist

by

After promising that he would not become a lobbyist rumors are swirling that former Sen. Chris Dodd is in negotiations to become the next head of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). The MPAA lobbying job is said to be the most lucrative lobbying job on K Street.

The CT Mirror reported on Dodd's forswearing of lobbying in the summer of 2010: "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."
