Washington, D.C. This morning, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) was joined by 26 of his colleagues in sending a letter (text below) to TARP IG Neil M. Barofsky requesting an investigation into AIGs counterparty payments. Specifically, the Members of Congress want to know what kind of assessments (if any) were made of the health and total exposure risks of the counterparties, as well as whether or not AIG made any attempts to renegotiate the contracts.

Grijalva (D-Ariz.), Maurice D. Hinchey (D-N.Y.), Tim Holden (D-Pa.), Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio), Mary Jo Kilroy (D-Ohio), Dennis J. Kucinich (D-Ohio), John Lewis (D-Ga.), Eric Massa (D-N.Y.), Kendrick B. Meek (D-Fla.), George Miller (D-Calif.), Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.), James L. Oberstar (D-Minn.), Donald M. Payne (D-N.J.), Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.), Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.), Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), John F. Tierney (D-Mass.), Timothy J. Walz (D-Minn.), Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), and Peter Welch (D-Vtl
