State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has issued subpoenas in an effort to retrieve details from American International Group (AIG) on the hundreds of millions of dollars the insurance giant is set to pay out in bonuses to executives.

He says his office will investigate whether those receiving the payments were involved in the insurance giant's decline and whether the payments are fraudulent under state law.

"I believe in transparency and disclosure. This is taxpayer money, and the taxpayers are providing these funds at a very, very difficult time. And we want transparency and disclosure. We believe the taxpayers have a right to know what's happening with their money," said Cuomo.

Mr. Burns is alive and well in America! Homer Simpson gets to pay the bill once again.

Where's the transparency?

There may actually be contractual agreements for those "bonuses".  What if we start suggesting they give the $ to New Orleans rebuild efforts instead of refusing them?  (I think I just found my blog topic for the day.)

This company needs to be held accountable for the money they're taking.  If they don't want to disclose it that's fine, give back the money you're borrowing from tax payers.

You missed, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and Hussien Obama. Might as well add them to the list. They will scream and holler and then do nothing as usual.

Thank you all for your comments. As usual, politics is a volitile and divisive topic.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke appeared on 60 minutes last Sunday - an almost unprecedented occurence. I liked this analogy.

Scott Pelley: "You know, Mr. Chairman, there are so many people outside this building, across this country, who say, 'To hell with them. They made bad bets. The wages of failure on Wall Street should be failure,'"

"Let me give you an analogy, if I might," Bernanke said. "Suppose you have a neighbor who smokes in bed and he's a risk to everybody. If he sets fire to his house, you might say to yourself, you know, 'I'm not gonna call the fire department. Let his house burn down. It's fine with me.' But then, of course, but what if your house is made of wood? And it's right next door to his house? What if the whole town is made of wood? Well, I think we'd all agree that the right thing to do is put out that fire first, and then say, 'What punishment is appropriate? How should we change the fire code? What needs to be done to make sure this doesn't happen in the future? How can we fire proof our houses?' That's where we are now. We have a fire going on."

Bernanke told Pelley that "fire" is still burning.

all these guys should have a bulls eye on the back of their heads.. :)

Even if the 'contractual' argument is made if the company failed they would have walked away empty handed.   It is my understanding that Sen. Dodd screwed up the original verbiage that allowed this interpretation to recieve the bonuses.

Thank you Jim. That is the point exactly. If the company failed, these "valuable" employees would have circled the drain and got nothing, which is what they deserve now. The financial system as we know it needs to be re-invented with more checks and balances. Corporate America has been out of control for too long while ethics were pushed aside in the name of greed. The public outcry and backlash is just beginning.

Konnie - A bulls eye would be helpful.
