NEW ORLEANS—Former U.S. Rep. Joseph Cao of New Orleans
has a new job.
Cao (pronounced Gow), who lost a re-election bid last year, was
the nation's first Vietnamese-American congressman. He is now
working for the independent agency that administers BP's $20
billion oil spill claims fund. According to Cao aide Murray Nelson,
Cao's job is to help members of the Vietnamese community affected
by the Gulf oil spill - from Texas to Florida - in their
communications with claims administrator Kenneth Feinberg.
Cao was with Feinberg on Monday during a visit to Grand Isle.
