BP Bought Barton at Bargain Basement Rates

Compared to many other things, buying a member of Congress is fairly cheap:

To be precise, $110,620 is the amount oil and gas industries gave U.S. Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) in the most recent election cycle. The pay back came when Barton apologizized  to BP for all the nastiness  suffered by the company because of the spill,at a congressional hearing –Public Citizen,Money and Democacy Update.
