Joe Barton Decries BP "Shakedown" By Obama!

Texas Congressman Joe Barton made a statement today accusing the administration of conducting a "shakedown" by requiring BP to place $20 billion in an escrow account for Gulf Coast recovery funds as a result of the disastrous and spreading oil spill.
Barton has long been a "friend" of big oil in Congress collecting close to $2 million in campaign contributions from that sector over the years.
Perhaps that money might be construed as "protection money!"
