Here is a story about a union between "Big Oil" (for you MasterPo) and government:
WASHINGTON (AP) _ Government officials handling billions of dollars in oil royalties partied, had sex with and accepted golf and ski outings from employees of energy companies they were dealing with, federal investigators said Wednesday.

the article discusses how government brokers responsible for collecting billions of dollars in federal oil royalties operated in a "culture of substance abuse and promiscuity" that included having sex with energy company employees, accepting lavish gifts and rigging contracts to favored firms, investigators said Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2008.
This wasn't done in secret. The participants in these activities, on both sides, wanted the world to know this and told the investigators. This is the generally accepted way of how a U.S. government and business relationship should work. This should not be considered "big oil" nor a conspiracy.
This is just the tip of the iceberg.
