JOHN WOIKE / HARTFORD COURANT
February 19, 2009
Sen. Christopher J. Dodd answers questions during a press conference at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford on the consequences of the home foreclosure crisis for renters. Dodd, local political leaders and the Yale Legal Service Organization are looking for more protection for tenants, who often face eviction automatically when a bank forecloses. Dodd announced during a February press conference he will return any contributions received from financier R. Allen Stanford, who is accused by federal regulators of defrauding investors of $8 billion.
