Public Petitions The White House To Investigate Chris Dodd & The MPAA For Possible Bribery

from the quid-pro-quo dept

Late on Friday, we posted a story about how Chris Dodd at the MPAA appeared to be directly threatening politicians who had taken money from Hollywood, but refused to pass SOPA/PIPA. Of course, pretty much everyone expects pay-for-laws type of corruption in politics these days, but it's quite rare for the head of a major lobbying trade group to be so explicit about it. That story went viral in a major way over the weekend -- becoming the most trafficked story on Techdirt... ever. I would doubt that whatever Dodd/the MPAA did reaches to the level of legally actionable... but others aren't so sure. In the comments there's an interesting discussion of the nature of "quid pro quo" in determining if something is considered a bribe. Some point out that Dodd appears to be highlighting the "quo" part, which is where things get dicey.

Pretty soon after the post went up, a We The People petition showed up on the White House's site, asking for a federal investigation of Dodd and the MPAA to see if they were "bribing" public officials. That petition has been gathering an awful lot of signatures all weekend, and it seems quite likely that it will soon reach the required threshold, requiring a comment from the White House. At the very least, I would be interested to see how the White House responds...

    This could be fun...

    To be honest, I don't even care if they actually investigate because at heart, most of us are already "convinced" of their guilt. I doubt any investigation will change our minds if it doesn't come to our preconceived conclusions.

    That being said, just getting the White House to respond would be fun as all hell. We could reach new heights of double-speak here people...rivaling even Dark Helmet, DH's Love Child, Marcus Carab, and Hephaestus combined!!!

    Get with the signing people! :-)

    The DOJ is run by ex content types. If anything happens it will be a slap on the wrist, and a high paying job at the MPAA.

You can't say that doesn't appeal to you. I mean, really, this could be fodder for snarky commentary for months! MONTHS I tell you!

    Considering the Obama administration has already appointed numerous RIAA and MPAA lawyers into high positions at the Department of Justice, I can't imagine they are willing to do much about this since they are part of the problem too.

    It's been reported that the copyright groups 'invested' into 31 congresscritters in both parties to see this bill passed with out opposition. Even Obama is in on the take if you hear what some of the Hollydud moguls are saying about continuing political donations.

    I seriously doubt any of them are going to want DOJ in their business inspection how they are conducting lawmaking for it to gather any support.

    This will be handled like most of the We The People petitions. It'll have a lot of nice words about how it can't be done or is not in the interests of the US.

    Welcome to the finest laws money can buy.

    No Stranger to Quid Pro Quo

    Chris Dodd is no stranger to quid pro quo arrangement’s. He received a sweetheart deal from Countrywide while he was chairman of the commitee overseeing them. Countrywide as you know was sunk during the banking and Housing crashes. A crash Chris Dodd helped bring about.

    It's only bribery if Dodd's money goes directly in their wallets. It's not bribery if it goes into their campaign accounts.

    Similarly, it's bribery if you give a congressmen expensive gifts and they don't disclose it in their financial statements. If they forget to disclose it then it's bribery and you both go to jail!

    What with so many in Congress already on the MPAA payroll then it is hard to see any real action coming from this.

    One interesting aspect is that following the SOPA and PIPA defeats it is now the Tech Industry and not the Entertainment Industry who can wield some real power in Congress.

    Lobbying may be lawful but there are still rules to follow.

    He is so corrupt that he doesn't even realize he is corrupt. To Dodd it is just the normal way of doing business. When he was in congress he voted the way he was paid (dammit). Hence he considered himself an honest politician.

    Folks, Everything the MPAA and RIAA have done is probably perfectly legal. It may be immoral, unethical, and down right wrong, but until Congress stops large campaign contributions form wealthy individuals and large corporations it will never end this corruption.

    Since Congress benefits the most from this I doubt it will end anytime soon. Unless of course the American people demand it stops and actually puts pressure on their Congressmen and Senators to end this pay for votes system.

I've had my tin-foil hat fall off a number of times whilst reading their hilarious comments. This in turn allows the CIA to resume sending in the mind-control rays from the Koch brothers forcing me to buy more Coca-Cola which in turn has the dreaded compound "Chemical X" turning me from a mild-mannered software developer into a super-soldier.

    Fuck! We thought bribery was legal in DC, we just have to call it lobbying. Sorry about the misunderstanding. We will get our best people on this immediately. Yes we can!

    To answer a glib question seriously

    What about Dodd's freedom of speech?

    I know this was more of a flip question aimed at his statement on TV, but this question can also be aimed at the larger issue about lobbying, and money in politics that deserves a comment.

    Currently money in politics is protected expression, and honestly I don't have a major problem with that. The money is supposed to buy advertising time, and if the average TV watcher votes for a politician based off an ad that doesn't even have ten percent of the charisma and persuasion of that Slap Chop commerical, than we get what we deserve.

    On the other hand, which was the point of the original article and this is why I think the petition is important,the speech (money) does not behold the receiver to obey. In demanding that MPAA contributions should lead to instant compliance, he showed his, and the MPAA's hand. And what a dirty set of cards they were carrying!

    Re: Re:

    I have been reading that and they seem to be doing it all wrong. Why wait for Congress to approve a Convention that is designed to by-pass their control? That cannot be how the US Constitution is worded.

    What needs to be done is this...

    1. Contact the Government of all States and point out all the issues they have wanted to have a Convention on. Call for a open topic Convention statement to be sent to Congress all during a month like March 2013.

    2. Should Congress receive the 2/3rds required then all States should send a representative to a meeting place during September 2013. You do not need Congress's approval t do this. You may want to host this in Canada.

    3. These representatives can then propose and debate how the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the nature of Congress, and the Administration can be changed. These ideas can then be put to a vote to obtain the required majority.

    4. To further increase the legality of by-passing Congress it is recommended that the end proposal is put to the population to decide where the required number of States must approve the proposal for this to become law.

    5. Congress is then informed of the changes. Should they refuse to accept this then all elections should be suspended and no bills from the unlawful Congress should be turned into law. Then either you can have the Army expel these traitors from Congress, wait until they give up, or build Congress #2 and bomb Congress #1 into rubble.

    6. Convention complete. Long live Democracy.

    Interesting. Presumably the value of a donation to a candidate's campaign is the number of votes that can be gained through advertising/organizational expenditures. Does Dodd really expect that to outweigh the cost of angering a large number of voters with a wildly unpopular vote?

    I wonder what impact it would have on the MPAA's efforts to buy votes if SOPA opponents were to organize opposition to politicians who accepted MPAA donations while Dodd is still in charge.

    I would doubt that whatever Dodd/the MPAA did reaches to the level of legally actionable...

    I find that argument irrelevant. By his/their own arguments, copyright infringement is no different than theft of physical property irregardless of legal distinctions. Therefore, by their own rules, what they did was bribery irregardless of whatever fine legal distinctions they may be short of.

    This is one of those "unintended consequences" they keep being warned about, but choose to willfully ignore.

    If they want to set the rules, I WILL use those rules against them.

    OFFICIAL RESPONSE

    I just got a response 20 minutes ago:

    'Why We Can't Comment

    Thank you for signing this petition. We appreciate your participation in the We the People platform on WhiteHouse.gov. However, consistent with the We the People Terms of Participation and our responses to similar petitions in the past, the White House declines comment on this petition because it requests a specific law enforcement action."

    Re: OFFICIAL RESPONSE

    Yeah I got it also and I fired off an email to President Obama expressing my disappoint in refusing to comment and the lame reason for doing so. Not that I'm going to hold my breath.

    GOLIATH AND HIS BRAVERY!
    Kindly, I am full Roman Catholic and a celibate as my wife; for near one decade this October 13, 2012! My family has been separated due to malicious assembly children’s ward people who smeared my reputation! The Jesuit Christopher (Jesus Christ) is not a warrior; and was rightfully a sect leader murdered for spreading ill including 'false;' gospel. By consulting the powerful Funk & Wagnalls Standard Desk Dictionary reviewed American legal by Mr. Sidney I. Landau; Editor-In Chief; contact; the Jesuit "... A member of the Society of Jesus ...;"(a minister of communism) ... a scheming founder; who desired the order of communism distinct from the ... "One who has not adopted Christianity, Judaism, or Islam;" (or any form of communist activity; including 'tele-dating ;')! In Democracy; we are know ledged! To 'assume;' (believe); is further to the communist doctrine!!
    "The crusaders comprised military units of Roman Catholics;" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusades; is real war truth and not belief!! The King of all the German Empire; (1212 –50; Before Crimea); Holy Roman emperor Frederick I; rallied against all communist activity; including "the selling;" of people; 'into;' slavery; (and the mildest; form is dating by religion.
    "Sodom;" as per the Old Testament: Genesis; VII: Verse 10; by the Standard Registration and Trade Mark of the Harper & Row Incorporated; "un natural sexual relations ... between male ('or female') persons ... and an animal;" ... was the Holy Crusade by the Holy Roman Catholic Regime.
    In Sodom near Gomorrah; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodomy_law; is the truth to the Roman Code of Honor I prescribe: “A sodomy law is a law that defines certain sexual acts as crimes. The precise sexual acts meant by the term sodomy are rarely spelled out in the law, but are typically understood by courts to include any sexual act deemed unnatural. It also has a range of similar euphemisms.[1] These acts typically include oral sex, anal sex and bestiality; in practice such laws have rarely been enforced against heterosexual couples.[2];”!
    “History is ‘set;’ incorrect on the true Account of the Son of David!” As, the research: http://www.bib-arch.org/e-features/sodom-and-gomorrah.asp; “While exploring the high fertile banks along the southeastern shore of the Dead Sea, however, the same archaeological expedition discovered the ruins of four towns that had been inhabited during the Early Bronze Age;” this once “fertile Valley of the Dead; as per the Egyptian; Koran; on war campaigning; proves; the “mighty;” Goliath the son; and his father; the Holy Roman Catholic King of Nefertiti “used;” the Arc-of-the-Sun; and “eclipsed;” a Ray of Purple Hue; (the only Catholic color) any-where; and “split;” the ‘Sodom;’ and ‘Gomorrah;’ to Hell!!
    Today; the olde; Hebrew State is no longer of Gotland.
    Kindly; re-read Scripture of The Old Testament!

    The Whisper of the Next Constellation?

    The Whisper of the Next Constellation?
    Essay

    Sir William Place,

    Telephone: (780) 466-9719

    “In modern astronomy, a constellation is an internationally defined area of the celestial sphere. These areas are grouped around asterisms, patterns formed by prominent stars within apparent proximity to one another on Earth's … A primordial black hole is a hypothetical type of black hole that is formed not by the gravitational collapse of a large star but by the extreme density of matter present during the universe's early expansion..” With the said respect; a, ‘dwarf;’ Star; can “implode;” like a Hiroshima Hydrogen explosion! The arrival of the Universe is not an accident! The Next closest Constellation must have a “pulse;” that is Sound Navigation and Ranging (S.O.N.A.R); can “map;” to pin-point; accuracy. “Active sonar creates a pulse of sound, often called a "ping", and then listens for reflections (echo) of the pulse … A star system or stellar system is a small number of stars which orbit each other,[1] bound by gravitational attraction. A large number of stars bound by gravitation is generally called a star cluster or galaxy, although, broadly speaking, they are also star systems … Mantle convection is the slow creeping motion of Earth's rocky mantle caused by convection currents carrying heat from the interior of the Earth to the surface.” The “Leo-A;” in the near Galaxy (British for Constellation); is the near to can be photographed friend near. In the last days of Earth; I foresee a Galactic cosmos called the Armageddon. With the help of man that is kind and not kind lie in any communist form including modern and predeceasing worship to the alter of demon; we must study; this Leo!
