    Another AIG Resort "Junket": Top Execs Caught on Tape
    $343,000 Secret Gathering, AIG Signs and Logos Hidden

    Even as the company was pleading the federal government for another $40 billion dollars in loans, AIG sent top executives to a secret gathering at a luxury resort in Phoenix last week.

    Reporters caught the AIG executives on hidden cameras poolside and leaving the spa at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort, despite apparent efforts by the company to disguise its involvement.

    "AIG made significant efforts to disguise the conference, making sure there were no AIG logos or signs anywhere on the property," KNXV reported.

    A hotel employee told KNXV reporter Josh Bernstein, "We can't even say the word [AIG]."

    A company spokesperson, Nick Ashooh, confirmed AIG instructed the hotel to make sure there were no AIG signs or mention of the company by staff.

    "We're trying to avoid confrontation, keep our profile low," said Ashooh. "Some of our employees have been harassed."

    Had I know they were coming to Phoenix, I would have gone down and harassed them.
