Suit Sheds Light on Clintons' Ties to a Benefactor

This really stinks, though you can't really blame the Clintons for taking money from this vain man who's willing to screw his shareholders for his own ego -- it's more a tale about how corrupt modern politics has become and the sleazy people you have to put up with to raise big money...

The company, infoUSA, one of the nation’s largest brokers of information on consumers, paid $146,866 to ferry the Clintons, Mr. Gupta and others to Acapulco and back, court records show. During the next four years, infoUSA paid Mr. Clinton more than $2 million for consulting services, and spent almost $900,000 to fly him around the world for his presidential foundation work and to fly Mrs. Clinton to campaign events.

Those expenses are cited in a lawsuit filed late last year in a Delaware court by angry shareholders of infoUSA, who assert that Mr. Gupta wasted the company’s money trying “to ingratiate himself” with his high-profile guests.
