My bank is BofA, so this article interested me.

One question about the timing of such a deal might be -- should a bank that receives TARP funds still be leveraging financial positions elsewhere?

The other question about BofA and TARP funds should be -- why are they still giving out hefty bonuses?

The Journal's Amir Efrati, citing anonymous sources, reported that Cuomo was dissatisfied with Bank of America's response to the inquiry.

At least some of the bonuses paid out to Bank of America executives are publicly available through the company's public filings. Companypay.com, for example, has compiled a list of the top compensated executives at Bank of America over the past few years.

Of course they say that the TARP money didn't go into the investment. Nevertheless, the events were virtually simultaneous. It doesn't look right to me.
