Big (Sexy) Oil

Breaking news this morning of widespread corruption within the agency involved in issuing the country’s offshore drilling leases.

According a story in today’s Washington Post, investigators have found that Government brokers responsible for collecting billions of dollars in federal oil royalties operated in a “culture of substance abuse and promiscuity” that included having sex with energy company employees, accepting lavish gifts and rigging contracts to favored firms.

Looks like the environment isn’t the only thing getting screwed…

Get the whole story in today’s Washington Post and Denver Post.
