Dodd criminal banking combine's Friend
Separately, Sen. Dodd was AIG’s largest single recipient of campaign donations during the 2008 election cycle with $103,100, according to opensecrets.org. Also, one of AIG Financial Products’ largest offices is based in Connecticut.
“Senator Dodd was completely unaware of these AIG bonuses until he learned of them in the past few days,” wrote Szostak. ( You can't expect him to read all the laws he passes. G )
To suggest that the bonuses affecting AIG had any effect on Senator Dodd’s action is categorically false.”
“I can't point a finger at someone who was responsible for putting those dates in,” Dodd told FOX. “I can tell you this much, when my language left the senate, it did not include it. When it came back, it did.”
But he did pass it, but its not his fault.
And the $100,000.00 payment had nothing to do with it.
AIG's down fall has to do with them repackaging toxic sub-prime paper.
