Gupta's InfoUSA Pays Pelosi's Son

Ronald Kessler Tuesday, June 5, 2007

A database company that has showered money on Bill and Hillary Clinton – and is alleged to have aided scam artists – now appears to have close links to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's family as well.

The firm InfoUSA, headed by major Clinton backer Vinod Gupta, has placed Pelosi's son, Paul Pelosi Jr., on its payroll – even though he has no experience in the company's main business activities, NewsMax has learned.

As NewsMax previously reported, InfoUSA repeatedly rented marketing databases to unscrupulous persons who used the information to defraud the unsuspecting elderly, investigators found.

The company is also under fire in a shareholder lawsuit which alleges that Gupta is appropriating company funds for personal use and his political pet projects.

Shareholder critics are furious that Gupta had InfoUsa pay former President Bill Clinton $2.1 million in "consulting fees" since he left the White House, with another $1.2 million promised.

GUPTAGATE ain’t going to happen, because the Republicans in congress are a bunch of spineless wimps.
Example: The Democrats, in collution with the Bush-hating MSM, got a lot of traction and votes with the Vallery Plame fishing expedition for just about 4 years with the end result of nothing. But when a by far worse outing was done by The New York Times that revealed our NSA’s black box operations of sending captured terrorist to foreign countries for interogation, and another that revealed our NSA’s terrorist money laundering operations through International Banking channels, there wasn’t a peep from anyone of them. These outings by the New York Times that borders on treason was done to sabotage the Bush administrations war on terrorism and did some very serious damage to our countries NSA, and put all americans at risk. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that whoever leaked this classified and top secret information was not a friend of Bush—i e probably a liberal Democrat. Had the Republicans ( who then controlled both houses of congress and the WH ) had any gonads they could have done what the Democrats and the MSM did with the Plame affair. These “outings” by the New York Times, and whoever leaked this information to them, should have been investigated with a Special Prosecutor, but wasn’t because unfortunatly our party leaders have spines like jellyfish.

I tried their “100 Free Sales Leads” offer and the first three I called hadn’t been with the company listed for more than two years.

So these @$$holes are the ones doing the “100 free sales leads” thing? I always thought it was pretty pointless. A lead’s not a lead if it’s just a name and a phone number.

I am a real estate agent in the DC area. The market sucks big time. Some a holes were out trying to sell us leads for $800 per month., They were from; that is about as reliable as the phone book. Disgusting!

I am sure that Paul Pelosi Jr.’s no-show employment with InfoUSA is just a conincidence. It could happen to anybody! Certainly it would have nothing to do with buying influence... Perish the thought!

“Republicans in congress are a bunch of spineless wimps.”

Bammo! The RNC will never see another dime of mine as they are silent on every issue of democratic corruption and criminal activity. That goes for the house and senate as well.

All of my political donations will go to the Fred campaign. Prior to his jumping in I had ZERO energy for politics anymore but now see a potential sea change for the conservative movement. Time will tell.
