Yesterday I posted Another AIG Victim Of Our Dem Leaders.
The short of it: An AIG exec said he had nothing to do with the company's problems and had stayed with AIG to try to help fix them. However, he was now resigning because of broken promises regarding bonuses and threats he and others there were receiving from the politician-led mob seeking and vowing vengeance.
I noted that members of Congress have contributed to that mob mentality and our country's slide toward banana republic standards by their frequent abuse of witnesses at congressional hearings.
The following photo and accompanying text from a Financial Times story helps make my point.
Last week, testifying to Congress, Edward Liddy (pictured), chief executive of AIG, the stricken insurer at the centre of a scandal about bonuses paid to top executives in spite of a $170bn bail-out, told of lurid death threats, including a vow to garotte staff with piano wire. Jimmy Cayne, the dethroned chief executive of Bear Stearns, is said to employ armed guards.
