AIG CEO Claims To Have Asked For Half of Bullshit Bonuses to Be Returned, Fears Death Threats, Thereby Proving He’s Only About 50% Dumbass, As It Turns Out
I’m sure this whole thing will be cleared up in just a few hours, now that C-SPAN is reporting that AIG’s CEO, Edward Liddy, has asked for part of some of the bonuses paid to executives to be given back. While testifying in front of the House Financial Services subcomittee, Liddy apparently said that he has asked “employees of AIG Financial Products to step up and do the right thing” by returning “at least half of those payments.” He also agreed to release the names of people who received the bonuses to the committee, as long as they weren’t released to the press. Apparently, he’s afraid of death threats in the event that these names get out to the public. What he doesn’t seem to realize is that people just need to go clubbing in Manhattan to find AIG employees who received bonuses, anyway. Oh, and the fact that he has been subpoenaed eighty million times for this information already.
