What is the former President’s relationship with InfoUSA?
Because Senate financial disclosure rules do not require Hillary Clinton to reveal exactly how much â€” or for what â€” the company has paid her husband over the past five years, we donâ€™t know all the details. But we do know this: former presidents â€“ especially Bill Clinton â€“ donâ€™t come cheap. And, just months after he left the presidency, Bill Clinton was paid $200,000 for a speech given to InfoUSA in Omaha. Since then, he has been paid an undisclosed amount each year, listed only as â€œmore than $1000â€ for â€˜non-employee compensationâ€ on Senator Clintonâ€™s Senate financial disclosure form.
According to the The New York Times, InfoUSA compiled and sold lists that disclosed the names of elderly men and women who would be likely to respond to unscrupulous scams.
The ‘testicle lock-box’ is stronger than anyone can imagine. It has worked for her so far. Whether there’s something to indicate that Slick Willie knew of these practices seems to be a most relevant question. And if there is, I’m just dying to hear him explain. And did she know too? At any rate, the worst thing Mrs. Bill Clinton can do is to ignore it or dismiss it as a ‘right-wing conspiracy’ like the way John Kerry ‘handled’ the Swift Boat Vets. His running from the SBV’s cost him. If Hillary takes a similar stance, she’s toast.
