    FIrst, “The congressional investigators probing the Deepwater Horizon disaster are turning up intriguing information that point to a litany of technical and human problems with the well whose failure has led to a spreading environmental crisis caused by the non-stop gushing of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico.”

    However, to look a bit deeper into the connection between congress and the oil spill:

    The Washington Post:

    Nearly 30 members of the congressional committees overseeing oil and gas companies held personal assets in the industry totaling $9 million to $14.5 million late last year. That included at least $400,000 in the three companies at the heart of the Gulf of Mexico oil-drilling disaster, according to a Washington Post analysis of financial disclosure forms released Wednesday.
