Guess Who Was the Top Recipient of Donations From BPTopics: Political News and commentaries
As STACLU quips, if you guess Barack Hussein Obama (and the Democrats), pour yourself a shot of tequila:
Obama was also the top recipient of Exxon Mobile money in 2008. And Chevron. Hmm.More or less just a side note since how BP's political donations help them with the Feds, if at all, remains to be seen. My guess is that the political influence pays off more on the drilling regulation side of the equation and very little to none at all on the Feds' non-criminal investigation.
For now, lobbying is legal, and both sides of the political aisle take the money when it's offered - Obama and the Democrats are just better at getting the top dollars.
