Dodd defends actions as an AIG exec returns $6 million bonus - CNN.com
It's hard to admit when you're wrong.(CNN) -- A defiant Sen. Chris Dodd defended his actions on bonuses for AIG executives Friday as news surfaced that a senior company executive was returning his $6 million bonus.
Sen. Chris Dodd admitted to CNN this week that he added bonus legislation to the stimulus bill.
Dodd said he was misled on the issue of bonuses for AIG executives. He claimed he would not have drafted key legislative changes allowing the bonuses to move forward if he knew the purpose of those changes.
