‘Spillionaires’ are the new rich after BP oil spill payouts – The Washington Post

One man who earned $67,000 in 2009, fishing crabs and hunting a swamp rat called nutria, got $100,000 for his six-month claim. That was on top of $90,000 for working on the cleanup and $20,000 he received in initial BP claims. In the eight months after the spill, he made $210,000, more than three times his 2009 income.

… yep, bad ole’ BP.

Little to do with corruption in the claims, and fingerpointing at the guys who weren’t running the rig.
