Dodd: I Added the Bonus Language

WASHINGTON –U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., admitted that he added language that allowed for the AIG bonuses.
“I’m the one who has led the fight against excessive executive compensation, often over the objections of many.  I did not want to make any changes to my original Senate-passed amendment but I did so at the request of Administration officials, who gave us no indication that this was in any way related to AIG.  Let me be clear – I was completely unaware of these AIG bonuses until I learned of them last week.
