Angle clarifies statement on BP

SUBMITTED RELEASE

angle1-5552701-2202498Statement from Sharron Angle:

There’s been some confusion this morning regarding my position on BP and the oil spill. Having had some time to think about it, the caller and I shouldn’t have used the term “slush fund”; that was incorrect.

My position is that the creation of this fund to compensate victims was an important first step–BP caused this disaster and they should pay for it. But there are multiple parties at fault here and there should be a thorough investigation. We need to look into the actions (or inactions) of the administration and why the regulatory agency in charge of oversight was asleep at the wheel while BP was cutting corners. Every party involved should be held fully accountable.
