Congress To AIG Execs: Return Bonus Or Be Forced To Attend WBC Games

WASHINGTON--Key Congressional officials announced a new plan last night to get that taxpayer-funded bonus money back from AIG executives.

Return the ill-gotten loot to Uncle Sam pronto, or be forced to attend all the remaining World Baseball Classic games in person.

A staffer who spoke to us on the condition of anonymity said "we want these fat cats [who refuse to give their bonus back] to fill up the empty seats and watch their favorite major leaguers risk injury in meaningless games."

Under the draft proposal, each participating AIG executive would be flown to the WBC games on luxury executive jets and stay in five-star hotels, all paid for by the U.S. government.

"Even with those expenses, our plan will save the taxpayers significant money," the staffer said.
