With everyone in Washington having dropped the ball on bailout bonus bucks, at least somebody's doing the right thing.

Beleaguered AIG bigwig James Haas, who bagged a multi-million dollar bonus, said today he's given all the money back in the face of explosive criticism that has led to him and other execs getting death threats.

"I have rescinded my retention contract," a tired and tearful Haas, co-leader of North American marketing for AIG's troubled Financial Products unit, told The Post.

Speaking inside his hilltop Connecticut mansion, Haas - eyes welling with tears - declined to discuss the matter further.......

If Jimmy Haas" neighbors had not bailed out AIG with there hard earned tax dollars, then the contract he is crying over wouldn't have been worth the paper it is printed on.

Why Don't You Say,"I Am So Very Very Sorry For What I Have Done. Can You Please Forgive Me For What I Did And The Way I Acted.

Jimmy, You Are Just As Stupid As You Look
If You Did Not Rescind Both Bonus Payments

The New York Attorney General Doesn't Just Have The Greedy AIG Bonus Pirates He Just Got The Identities Of The 200 Highest-Paid Bonus Recipients At Merrill Lynch And Co
Boston Globe

The story of Merrill Lynch's $3.6 billion bonus bonanza belongs in an entirely different league. Many of the details have already been disclosed, but they are making headlines again this week because a judge upheld the right of New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to disclose the names of Merrill executives who shared in the payout just before the crumbling brokerage was sold to Bank of America Corp. late last year.
Start with the money. Besides the mind-bending size of the entire bonus pool, a staggering amount of money was distributed at the top. The four executives who got the most received a total of $121 million, according to Cuomo. The next four got $62 million, and the following six were awarded $66 million. A grand total of 696 Merrill employees received at least $1 million each in bonuses.
But the Merrill story isn't just about the size of the money pot. How and when the bonus payout took place matter, too.

Merrill accelerated its normal bonus schedule so the awards took place just days before Bank of America acquired the company at the end of 2008. A couple of weeks later, executives suddenly discovered Merrill was bleeding to the tune of $13.8 billion during the final quarter of the year
So a company that was losing money at a pace of more than $6 million each hour over a period of three months decided to reward its executives with $3.6 billion of bonuses at the very time. That would have been a sad but private story if it ended there, but it didn't.....
By The Way Did You Hear That:
The Connecticut Working Families party, which has support from organized labor, is planning a bus tour of A.I.G. executives’ homes on Saturday, with a stop at the company’s Wilton office.

Did You Hear About This:

Jackpot Jimmy Haas had another tearful New York Times interview.

At at the end of the interview he had one request:

Leave my neighbors alone.”

Too late. Jean Wieson, who has lived down the block for 24 years, had stopped her car in front of Mr. Haas’s house before he arrived home. She was angry about the millions of dollars in bonuses paid to its executives, the credit-default swaps that brought American International Group to its knees, the $170 billion the federal government has spent to prop it up. "It makes me absolutely sick," she said. "It’s despicable. It’s disgusting what these people have done. They should be forced to give every cent back."


Jackpot Jimmy Haas Is Really Going To Start Crying Now

Greenwich Resident Richard Blumenthal Just Sent Him A Subpoena

Connecticut, 19 other states launch AIG investigations

CNN International

Twenty state attorneys general announced investigations Friday into the $165 million bonuses paid by insurance giant AIG last week, with Connecticut's top lawyer issuing subpoenas to CEO Edward Liddy and 11 other executives.

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and the Democratic chairman of the General Assembly's Banks Committee want Liddy and other executives to appear Thursday and bring with them "original or copies of documents regarding the AIG Financial Products Corp. retention bonus plan and any related contracts or agreements."

"Now living off supersized taxpayer-paid bonuses, these AIG employees have a moral and legal obligation to appear at this legislative hearing and disclose details about corporate compensation to employees as well as investment decisions by AIG Financial Products Corp. involving credit derivatives and dealings that have led to market destruction," said Blumenthal, a Democrat.

AIG officials are citing a Connecticut law to justify their payment of the bonuses. The law says that employees can sue in civil court for payments withheld that are due them and recoup double the amount of money. Many AIG employees live in Connecticut.

New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is already investigating AIG's bonus payments, and on Thursday received a list of employees who received bonuses that he had demanded a day earlier.

It was not clear where Blumenthal got the list of executives he subpoenaed. At least one of them, Doug Poling, is know to have received a retention bonus. Earlier Friday, Poling, a senior executive, announced through a company spokesman that he would be returning the $6 million he received.

The attorneys general of Arizona, Delaware, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington and West Virginia have also launched investigations. New Jersey Attorney General Anne Milgram said all 19 state attorneys signed a letter to Liddy demanding names and documents concerning the bonuses.....
