BP chief's testimony disgusting
Placeholder Image
From LaVern F. IselyMonroeBP's Chief Executive Officer Tony Hayward's testimony in front of Congress was disgusting, by seemingly pleading ignorance or pleading the Fifth Amendment, is not the way the head of an oil company should act. I'm trying to make up my mind whether the oil companies or the investment bankers are the most corrupt in this country. As for Republican Rep. Joe Barton from Texas, who since 1990 has gotten more than $1.4 million from oil and gas industry political action committees to his campaigns, most of any House member during that period, said Congress should apologize to BP.
