The obnoxious voice of the Pentagon became BP's harpy in September 2011. Two years later Geoff Morrell landed a BP Senior Vice President position. Morrell's new job included Government and Public Affairs and Federal & International Affairs.
Geoff leads the BP team playing hardball with the various groups damaged by the company's 2010 Gulf Oil Spew. One of those is the Oil Spew Claims Administrator.
“This case may well serve for years to come as a disincentive to companies looking to do the right thing in response to an industrial accident,” Geoff Morrell, BP spokesman and senior vice president, said in an e-mail, “and that would be a bad outcome all around, including for individuals whose only option may then be years of litigation and for the taxpayers who may be left holding the bag.”That's the Freedom Switch. Taxpayers always hold the bag in America's Government-Corporate Monstrosity (GCM), Eisenhower's Military-Industrial Complex on trillions in federal budget steroids. Congratulations Geoff on getting your hand in the bag on both sides of the GCM.
