Another business out due to oil spill Updated: Friday, 28 Jan 2011, 9:43 PM CST
MOSS POINT, Mississippi (WALA) - When BP handed the claims process over to Ken Feinberg and the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, many claimants saw a ray of hope. Frustrated business owners prayed that the new system would pay out more money. But as we've been reporting over the last several months some of those prayers haven't been answered.
Garner Bosarge has successfully served up fresh seafood at Kicker's Seafood for 19-years. Then the oil spill happened.
(Newser) – A Pro Publica investigation introduces a new word in the Gulf Coast lexicon: spillionaire. As in, the nickname given to someone—usually someone politically connected—who raked in a lot of money from BP's unregulated $16 billion cleanup fund for localities. It puts a particular focus on St. Bernard Parish in New Orleans—along with its vocal president, Craig Taffaro—with tidbits like these:
A subcontractor there charged BP $15,400 a month to rent a generator, about 10 times higher than usual.
A company partly owned by the sheriff charged BP more than $1 million a month for land that had been renting closer to the $1,700-a-month range.
One fisherman earned $210,000 in the 8 months after the spill—more than three times his entire 2009 salary—because of emergency claims to BP and cleanup work.

BP, which caused the biggest environmental catastrophe ever seen on U.S. shores, may be poised to receive the biggest tax break in American history as a result of it.
The British oil company already has claimed $10 billion in tax credits from the 2010 disaster, caused when its Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded and spewed millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.
