Former AIG chairman Hank Greenberg is reportedly distancing himself from a $10 million donation made to Jeb Bush's super-PAC.
Just hours after The Wall Street Journal reported the large donation from Greenberg — which would have made him one of the most generous contributors in the 2016 race — the businessman has reportedly backtracked, attributing the donation to his company and giving less than complimentary assessment of Bush's performance on the campaign trail.
"I didn't give the money, the company [C.V. Starr] did," Greenberg said in a Fox Business exclusive interview.
"Listen, I like Jeb Bush. Sorry he's not living up to expectations but that's the reality of it."
Greenberg, who is now the CEO and chairman of the investment and insurance group of companies C.V. Starr, gave $5,000 to a super-PAC supporting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who has since quit the presidential race.
FEC records reported in the mid-year show that he gave money to no other candidate, but he may have done so since. The next reports are due out on Jan. 31.
