    Jack Conway has received more money from BP than any other candidate running in this election cycle, bringing in $9600 for his campaign from BP. His attempt to smear Rand Paul as the candidate in bed with BP certainly rings a little hollow in light of this information.

    BP: Recipients | OpenSecrets

    Not to mention that Jack's brother-in-law worked for BP when he made a $2300 donation to President Obama's campaign, and now denies that he worked for BP since it's politically unpopular now that Jack is running for Senate.

    Did Jack Conway’s brother work for BP or not? His $2300 donation to Obama claimed he did. | CapitalistBanner.com

    I note that all those interested in smearing Rand don't appear to be as interested in Conway's blatant hypocrisy.

    I was wondering when the Republicans were going to start running against Big Oil.

    Which is a lie. Rand said the rhetoric of the administration, such as saying "keep our boots on their throats," was un-American.

    But when you're criticizing your opponent as being the candidate in bed with BP, when you have received more money than any other candidate in the country from BP and your opponent has received none, it's quite a stretch.
