Nice… Paul Pelosi Jr. Takes Dip in Swamp
Dick Morris and Eileen McGann shine a light on the latest democratic swamp politics.
FOX News reported:
When Nancy Pelosi was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives, she promised to change things — to enact serious, and long overdue, ethical reforms — to stop the growing trend of legislators and their families accepting gifts, trips, and jobs from lobbyists and corporations.
Well, some things never change.
Several days ago, Newsmax.com disclosed that in February, shortly after his mother became the first woman speaker, Paul Pelosi Jr., was hired by InfoUSA for $180,000 a year as its vice president for Strategic Planning. Pelosi also kept his other full-time day job as a mortgage loan officer for Countrywide Loans in California. And, unlike all of the other InfoUSA employees, he did not report to work at the company’s headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska.
InfoUSA is the same company that has been cited by the New York Times for creating marketing lists that were used by con artists to fleece vulnerable elderly people. The lists had provocative names and offered the names of elderly people with cancer, elderly people with Alzheimer’s and gamblers over 55 years of age who think their luck will change. After purchasing the lists, the con artists would call and convince the elderly person that they had actually ordered an expensive item. Once they received the victim’s financial information, they often emptied their bank accounts, leaving many people penniless. Some of InfoUSA’s internal e-mails suggest that company employees were aware that several of the companies they sold the lists to were under investigation.

Now we know… It’s not just the Clintons who are attached to this shady firm. It didn’t take long for Speaker Pelosi to join them.
