All kinds of e-mails streaming in about this. The question, as best as I can decipher it: Whether AIG was correct in citing Connecticut’s Wage Protection Act as a reason for why it was legally compelled to pay the bonuses. The counterargument, per the Connecticut AG: The payments were bonuses, not “wages,” and therefore weren’t compulsory. The focus of the segment: Whether Connecticut’s AG is an insult to George Washington by using his “vampire fangs” to bleed companies dry. There’s no news value to this but high drama, especially given Blumenthal’s incredibly feeble defense of his own actions. Pop the popcorn and enjoy.
