Sangisetty Outraged by Texas Congressman

June 17, 2010

HOUMA, La. — Ravi Sangisetty, Democratic candidate for the Louisiana Third Congressional District, is outraged by a Texas congressman’s apology to BP CEO Tony Hayward.

“Joe Barton sat in front of the man who ‘wants his life back’ and he apologized to him. He said holding BP accountable for the damages they’ve caused in South Louisiana amounts to a ‘shakedown,’” Sangisetty said. “Go ask our fishermen who they think is getting the shakedown, BP or their industry.”

Sangisetty said this is yet another example of how broken Washington is.

“Congressman Barton owes the families of the eleven victims and the entire Gulf region an apology.”
