BP has responded to Lousiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's recent criticism of the company, saying the administration has "misrepresented" its records in the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. "Their political grandstanding contains patently false assertions, defies the demonstrated record of environmental recovery that has occurred across the Gulf, and defames the massive efforts of tens of thousands of people to foster prompt recovery and restoration," said Geoff Morrell, vice president of U.S. communications at BP. BP has so far spent $26 billion in costs related to the spill, Morrell added.
