BP forced to pay adult escort service for gusher

From the Wall Street Journal:

BP has complained for months it has been forced to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to businesses that filed damage claims after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster – even though they weren’t really affected. Now, the court-appointed lawyer supervising those payments has confirmed he approved a $173,000 payout to an ‘adult escort service’ that BP said was filed with unsigned and undated financial documents.”

BP’s fighting back with an ad campaign that reads, “The IRS wouldn’t accept this claim. But the Gulf Settlement Program did.” Maybe it’s just me, but whether or not the IRS would accept the claim seems beside the point.
