Report: BP confiscated cleanup workers clothing, refused to give back

If anyone is looking for yet another reason why BP needs their butts kicked out of the process, here’s another. The cleanup worker is now suing BP though it’s unimaginable that it had to come to that. The federal government should control this process and send BP the bill. Does BP own the country or do the people of the US own it?

In his affadavit, Wutstell described his experience at the hospital.

“At West Jefferson, there were tents set up outside the hospital, where I was stripped of my clothing, washed with water and several showers, before I was allowed into the hospital,” Wutstell sais. “When I asked for my clothing, I was told that BP had confiscated all of my clothing and it would not be returned.”

The restraining order requests that BP refrain from “altering, testing or destroying clothing or any other evidence or potential evidence” when workers become ill.

Graham MacEwen, a spokesman for BP, said he could not comment on the restraining order, or on allegations that BP confiscated clothing.
