Is it true that AIG donated 100k to the Obama's campaign?

Would that be considered a conflict of interest with obama's authorization of the bailout plan for AIG ?

Update:

If it is true.

    It is fairly common for big companies to make donation to all campaigns. I would think if the donated to Obama's they also donated to McCain and the others.

    Lobbyists make their living on both sides of the aisle.
