Business group calls for Geithner, Dodd ouster

A business advocacy group is calling on Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to be replaced, and for Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) to step aside as chairman of the Senate Banking Committee.

Americans for Job Security (AJS), a nonpartisan, tax-exempt organization which often backs conservative causes, announced a contest on its website for visitors to pick their favorite ad calling for the two's ouster.

The ads accuse Geithner and Dodd of having worked together to craft a loophole in the stimulus bill that allowed for executive bonuses to be paid out, like the controversial ones for AIG officials uncovered this week.
