Sloppy Oil Cleanup and Prostitutes

From Mother Jones reporter Mac McClelland, a report from Elmers Island (very near Grand Isle) about cleanup efforts and prostitutes.

Here's an excerpt:

They're only working five sites and it's eight miles of beach. No one seems concerned about cleaning it up. The contractors are getting their money; they don't care. They've got all these people out there, but they're not accomplishing anything."

Oh, wait. Not nothing: "They've brought in prostitutes." No one knows who the "they" that brought in the pack of hookers is, but the gals have definitely arrived, and you can buy time with one for $200.
