Fill Er Up Mr. Corker?

Bob Corker - according to the Commercial Appeal this am - was getting his campaign tank filled this week with big oil $$ at an event in Washington hosted by the Independent Petroleum Association.
This raises three questions:
Q1. Bob has attacked his primary opponents for being lobbyists. If they had been big oil lobbyists, would he have treated them differently?
Q2,3. Bob has not taken a strong position on big oil profits like his democratic opponent Harold Ford Jr. Wonder if he will - assuming he's still in the race post-August 3rd, and if he does, might his taking big oil $$ while slamming big oil be considered hypocrisy?
