I doubt Rep. Jo Bonner will be sending Ken Feinberg’s new book Who Gets What to his Christmas gift list this year. As we have mentioned, the Mobile Republican was highly critical of how Feinberg handled the so-called “compensation fund” for BP. It was Bonner’s belief that Feinberg was slow in handling claims and that he paid too little on claims. Feinberg hit back in his book, writing that Rep. Bonner “led the way” among his critics and accusing him and other elected officials of political grandstanding. I totally disagree with the accusation about grandstanding. I believe Rep. Bonner was merely standing up for BP’s victims and that’s certainly not a bad thing to do. But I will concede that Feinberg knows lots about the art of grandstanding.
According to Rep. Bonner, the book won’t change Feinberg’s “bitter legacy” on the Gulf Coast. He added that he hadn’t read the book and had no plans to do so. Rep. Bonner also added that had Feinberg kept his promises, he would have had a best seller on the Gulf Coast. Instead, Feinberg, according to Rep. Bonner, “will be remembered in South Alabama for being the architect of a colossal failure.”
