Chris Dodd was a United States Senator from Connecticut, who, after a series of embarrassing scandals concerning the refinancing of his homes (among other things) declined to run for re-election in 2010.
Chris Dodd was also part of the infamous “waitress sandwich” assault at the La Brasserie restaurant in Washington D.C., where he, and the late Senator Ted Kennedy drunkenly laughed while sexually molesting a tiny (103 lb.) waitress named Carla Gaviglio.
