A Google link that would take anyone doing a search on American International Group, to a sponsored link to New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's gubernatorial campaign was suddenly yanked last Wednesday following an inquiry by the New York Post. The link brought surfers to www.spitzer2006.com, CNN reported.

Calling the link an "inappropriate mistake," Spitzer spokesman Darren Dopp initially said he did not know anything about it. "AIG is an ongoing matter," he later clarified. "As soon as Mr. Spitzer found out about it, he had it corrected."
