Former Sen. Dodd to Become CEO of MPAA

Former Senator Christopher Dodd, who chose not to run for reelection last year after controversies including an ethics probe and the taking of preferential mortgages from Countrywide's CEO, will be the new head of the Motion Picture Association of America. The MPAA said that Dodd, who had served in the Senate since 1981, would become its new chairman and chief executive officer as of March 17.
