Joe Pyne: Video: Joe Pyne Interviews Jack Anderson, April, 6, 1969


This post was originally posted at The New Democrat on Blogger

Jack Anderson was a Washington columnist and a watchdog of Congress and wrote columns and did investigations with his partner Drew Pearson about what they saw as potential Congressional corruption. And I guess Senator Thomas Dodd of Connecticut was one of Mr. Anderson’s victims. Senator Dodd was accused of political corruption, by using his own campaign funds for his personal use. As Joe Pyne said in the video Senator Dodd claimed poverty, but as Anderson said “the man lived like a millionaire”. And the Senate agreed with that and censured the Senator in 1967.
