Asshole of the Year

The current front-runner for this year's asshole of the year award is the former CEO of AIG,  Maurice "Hank" Greenberg.

If an asshole had an asshole, that asshole would look at Greenberg and think "Jeez, what an asshole!"

  • The suits accuse the government of taking valuable assets from AIG's shareholders without their consent or fair compensation, in exchange for the government's 80% stake in the company. The suit says the government's actions violate parts of the 5th Amendment.

Could there be a more perfect representative of the 1%? I drove my company into the ground so fucking hard that it threatened to take down the whole economy. It was so bad that you little tax-paying peons had to bail me out. Now I'm going to sue because I didn't get paid enough for my criminal mismanagement!

Greenberg is just trying to scam more money. He will never give up...it's built into his nature.
