Angelo Mozilo, Countrywide Financial
2006: $42.9 million.

Angelo Mozilo has already heard from lawmakers about the level of his compensation as the CEO of Countrywide Financial Corp.

Mozilo reportedly stood to collect a windfall of $115 million dollars after his firm agreed in January to a yet-to-be completed $4 billion sale to Bank of America. But after facing heavy criticism from lawmakers, including Sen. Hillary Clinton, Mozilo said he would forfeit $37.5 million in payments tied to the deal.

In January, Sen. Charles Schumer and Rep. Barney Frank, both openly criticized Mozilo's compensation as Countrywide became a symbol of the subprime mortgage crisis.

"Mr. Mozilo could display some goodwill by donating any severance pay he stands to receive to the nonprofit housing counselors trying to prevent foreclosures," Schumer said in a statement.

In 2006, Mozilo took home $42.9 million in compensation.
