Franklin Raines and Jamie Gorelick ran Fannie Mae into the ground and then collected bonuses of $90 million and $24.7 million, yet we did not seem to be nearly as outraged as we are by the bonuses paid to AIG, facilitated by the biggest recipients of their campaign largesse.
Dodd and Obama were the only Senators getting over $100,000 in campaign contributions from AIG and they appear to have direct culpability in overlooking these pending bonuses when the bailout money was released.
Are to believe that Dodd and Obama were unaware of six figure contributions? Dodd also received favored loans from Countrywide pending their crisis. He has yet to release the documents he promised.
How long will the party loyalists tolerate such corruption and incompetence.
