AIG Financial Products Knew Who Their Friends Were

While AIG-Financial Group executives’ fundraising efforts for Sen. Chris Dodd are getting attention, other recipients shouldn’t be left off the hook, particularly because the big picture so clearly refutes the idea that Republicans are in the pocket of big business.

Employees of AIG Financial Products group — the division at the heart of the company’s troubles — have donated $385,452 for all cycles, according to Open Secrets. Of that total, $323,246 went to Democrats, $60,706 went to Republicans — an 84 percent to 16 percent split.
