(Newser) – AIG documents show the firm paid out $218 million in bonuses—higher than the $165 million that had been disclosed, says Connecticut’s attorney general. The papers show five at the firm scored bonuses of more than $4 million, said Richard Blumenthal, whose office received the papers last night after issuing a subpoena, the AP reports. The new figures will “further fuel the justified anger and revulsion,” he said.
