Dear Senator Dodd:

Several years ago I heard about a matter concerning you however there then were not sufficient facts for me to be able to do anything meaningful.  Just recently, I received a good set of credible facts about the same matter for which I am now compelled to take this step.

It is my understanding that during your years as an elected Congressman for the State of Connecticut, during about the late 1970’s, you privately entered a partnership with a man for the importation to the U.S. of illegal drugs.  The partnership involved Nick Romano who was associated with the well-known Romano Bakery in Milford, CT. A private plane with a full cargo of illegal drugs traveled from some point in Latin America to a location in one of the Carolinas.  The operation however was busted by federal authorities at which point you deftly evaded responsibility and thereby allowed you partner Mr. Romano take the rap.  He reportedly served several years in prison for that matter.  I respectfully ask that you fully comment on this situation which is of substantial public importance.

I grew up in Maryland.  I have two advanced degrees with honors including a Masters of International Management from the Thunderbird School of International Business (Glendale, AZ; where I also served as student body president) and Azusa University (Azusa, CA).  After working successfully in the U.S. Peace Corps in Bucaramanaga, Colombia, I worked for six years in Latin America with Bank of America followed by one year with Bank of America in its New York Corporate Office.  After nearly a year as Vice President with Connecticut Bank & Trust Co. where I observed in 1985 some problems of state activities in resource recovery,

I began a limousine service business which I operate currently.  From 1985 - 1987, I served a successful term as an elected member of the Town of Fairfield Representative Town Meeting.  I am a direct descendent of 17th Century Irish settlers of the Colony of Connecticut.

I will greatly appreciate your full, prompt cooperation.


Ethan Book Jr.
