Mortgage Deals for Members

The Washington Times has a follow-up report on what Senators Dodd and Conrad were thinking when they learned they were getting low mortgage refinance rates.

Both vehemently denied any wrongdoing or ethical lapse in the mortgage deals, which came to light a year ago and triggered investigations by the Senate Select Committee on Ethics and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

“I thought this was like a frequent-flier program,” Sen. Kent Conrad, chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, said of the special benefits. “I thought nothing of it.”
