Paid busloads of cleanup workers staged props for Obama’s oil spill visit

Has it really come to this? Yahoo News’ Brett Michael Dykes reports that BP paid busloads of temporary cleanup workers to show up as stage props for President Obama’s visit to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill cleanup operations on Grand Isle.

Dykes quoted Jefferson Parish councilman Chris Roberts who said “the overnight contingent of workers was there mainly to furnish a Potemkin-style backdrop for the event while also making it appear that BP was firmly in command of spill cleanup efforts. New Orleans NBC affiliate WDSU reports that the workers were paid $12 an hour and came mostly from neighboring Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes.” Read more at the Washington Examiner
