Oil rig maker calls in K Street backup 

The Transocean Offshore Deepwater Drilling company has called for backup.

The company that made the Deepwater Horizon oil rig currently spewing oil into the Gulf of Mexico hired a lobbying firm on Monday — the Capitol Hill Consulting Group (CHCG).

According to a CHCG lobbying registration, Transocean’s lobbyists will include: former Democratic congressman Bill Brewster of Oklahoma; former Tom DeLay energy staffer Jack Victory; and Amanda Hill.

(Footnote: If you’re thinking “Jack Victory” is a reassuring name for a lobbyist in a contentious battle, note there’s also a lobbyist named “Michael Fix.”)
