A Moment of Truthiness from Rep. John Duncan (R-TN)

Today at a hearing for the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Rep. John Duncan (R-TN) wanted to make sure folks knew that he is an independent man, not beholden to anyone:
"I have no connection to BP or any other oil company at all."
No connection, that is, besides the $85,111 in campaign contributions that he has taken from the oil and gas industry during his career, including thousands from ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips and Koch Industries.

That's a mighty interesting view on what precisely constitutes a "connection."
Hat tip to Miles Grant for alerting us to this particularly truthy tidbit.
