Senator Vitter of Louisiana wanted to limit oil co's liability

David Vitter, the Republican senator from Louisiana proposed a bill in 2000 to reduce criminal liability for oil companies. Fortunately the bill never made it onto the floor. If it had and had been passed it would now be almost impossible to bring criminal charges against BP.

Vitter, best known for his dalliances with professional women, made it clear that his loyalty wasn't to the people of Louisiana who he ostensibly represents but to large corporations.
