U.S. Senate candidate and Oshkosh businessman Ron Johnson reportedly owns thousands of dollars of stock in BP.
Johnson owns stocks worth between $116,000 and $315,000 in BP, the British petroleum company behind the Gulf oil gusher, according to financial reports filed Friday.
Johnson is one of two Republican candidates running for the seat held by Democratic U.S. Senator Russ Feingold. At a public forum in June, both Johnson and challenger Dave Westlake criticized the federal government’s treatment of BP.
SO we see that ROJO has a financial interest in sucking up to BP, as unethical as it is. The question is what is Westlakes excuse?
