A new chart out today illustrates the revolving door between politics in DC and the oil industry: specifically TransCanada, the company behind the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

The chart, an investigation "white board," was put out by Oil Change International, DeSmogBlog, The Other 98% and Friends of the Earth. Click through to see the full graphic, which shows an array of State Department officials, oil interests, lobbyists and campaign donors leading all the way to Secretary Clinton and President Obama—but really, it speaks for itself.
