Connecticut Senator admits giving loophole for AIG Bonuses

Senator Christopher Dodd of Connecticut has been caught in a bold faced lie. One day after denying he was personally responsible for inserting a loophole in a budget bill which protected bonus payments to executives at companies like AIG, Dodd was forced to admit that he is, in fact, responsible.

It worked like this: AIG gave more campaign money to Senator Dodd than any other Senator. When it came time to protect the bonuses of the folks at AIG, Dodd remembered the huge campaign contributions and paid his supporters back with a loophole.

They can deny it all day long, but that's what happened. I think Senator Christopher Dodd of Connecticut is corrupt and the AIG bonus loophole proves it. Dodd has to go.
