British Petroleum Spills Oil on the Gulf Coast and Coats Texas Politicians With Greenbacks

Faith Chatham - May 5, 2010
Thanks to Vince Leibowitz at Capitol Annex for following the money. Governor's Perry's confidence in BP may be connected to the faithfulness of their contributions to his campaign war chest. Here's a link to a spreadsheet showing the political contributions by British Petroleum to Texas Politicans.

  1. I feel bad that we keep destroying our earth. Many creatures will suffer great miserable future for the oil spilling. I am trying to do my job best for saving our earth. And I am selling solar street lights. I think it will help us much if you could add our link to your resouces. Thank you in advance
