Inhofe Says Tornado Aid is Different Than Hurricane Aid

In the wake of the devastating tornado in Oklahoma, Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) "rejected comparisons between federal aid for this disaster and the Hurricane Sandy relief package he voted against," the Washington Post reports.

Inhofe said that was a "totally different" situation arguing that the Sandy aid was filled with pork.

Said Inhofe: "Everyone was getting in and exploiting the tragedy taking place. That won't happen in Oklahoma."
