    Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing ^ | August 22, 2008 | InfoGroup, Inc.
    Today - September 30, 2008 - is Bill Clinton's last day on the job at InfoGROUP, the company that own's CNN's presidential polling partner, Opinion Research.

The information was learned from a court settlement filed with the SEC and the Court of Chancery in the State of Delaware a few weeks ago, which revealed some term of his contract, including the ending date. There is no evidence that it will be renewed. It appears that Bill...

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Database provider InfoUSA Inc. said Friday it received a Nasdaq delisting notice earlier this week because it still hasn't filed its annual report. InfoUSA said in a statement it expected the notice that trading of its shares could be suspended, but the Omaha company plans to appeal, which would delay any action by the Nasdaq Stock Market. InfoUSA said last month its annual report would be delayed because of an ongoing Securities and Exchange Commission investigation and a shareholder lawsuit that questions the company's spending. The annual report was due March 17. Investment manager Cardinal...

    NEW YORK - Concerns that infoUSA Inc.'s announced delay in filing its 2007 annual report could trigger a loan default led two credit rating agencies Wednesday to consider downgrading the database provider's debt rating. On Friday, infoUSA said its 2007 annual report will not be filed by a March 17 due date. The company said the report will be late because of an ongoing Securities and Exchange Commission investigation and a shareholder lawsuit. The SEC is investigating entertainment expenditures and certain stock trades. And a lawsuit filed by Cardinal Value Equity Partners and hedge fund Dolphin LP alleges that...

    Clintons' InfoUSA Ties Scrutinized by Peter Overby All Things Considered, February 13, 2008 · Political campaigns spend thousands, even millions of dollars to acquire good mailing lists. Last year, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton took the unusual step of renting out some of her lists. The transaction once again highlights the Clintons' connections to a businessman who now faces questions from the Securities and Exchange Commission. Reports from Clinton's campaign show that on Dec. 3, it collected payment for renting out three mailing lists, the sale of which netted them $8,225. It was an unusual transaction, according to Roger Craver,...

    Excerpt - On Thursday, all the Presidential candidates had to file their campaign finance disclosures for the fourth quarter of 2007. I gave the frontrunners' reports a quick scour both to get an updated read on the money race (summary statistics here) and to hunt for any fresh instances of the irregularities that have made this cycle so engaging in the past. So far, one schedule has made a special impression: Senator Clinton's Itemized Receipts, Line 21. Excerpted from the filing: Line 21 is typically very boring, generally nothing more than interest income on bank deposits. But it's also where...

    Throughout the year, CNN has been 'supportive' of Hillary's Presidential campaign. Polls commissioned by CNN and conducted by Opinion Research have usually been lagging in reflecting negative Clinton campaign news that have been picked up by other polls. That's primarily because CNN's polling partner, Opinion Research, was bought by a 'Friend of Bill' and major Clinton donor Vinod Gupta. With Opinion Research's parent company infoUSA now under SEC investigation because of questionable practices that have allegedly been used to benefit the Clinton's, CNN seems to be turning to other polling entities to gather accurate, in-state information on many of...

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Database provider infoUSA Inc. said Wednesday it formed a committee for internal investigation and related litigation in response to a shareholder lawsuit and SEC investigation into the company. The shareholder lawsuit claims the company misspent millions, some of it on Bill and Hillary Clinton. The suit questions why infoUSA founder Vin Gupta used private corporate jets to fly the Clintons on business, personal and campaign trips, why Gupta gave Bill Clinton a $3.3 million consulting contract and why the company paid for extravagant luxuries Gupta enjoyed. ~ snip ~

    Last January, an exclusive report was published on, revealing CNN had hired a major Hillary Clinton backer named Vinod Gupta to conduct their presidential polling for the 2008 election. Since then, several reports have appeared in the mainstream media, and on this site, detailing the antics of Gupta with the Clintons - the millions of dollars in corporate funds and services he has given to them, his conflict of interests in acting as CNN's pollster after declaring that "she'll be our next president", etc. As the negative publicity about him grew, Vinod Gupta eventually claimed that he had severed...

    Excerpt - The Securities and Exchange Commission has launched an investigation into InfoUSA, a Nebraska company that used corporate funds to fly Hillary Rodham Clinton around the country, and one of only two companies to put Bill Clinton on its payroll after he left the White House. The firm, a major provider of database-processing services, disclosed little about the nature of the probe in a filing to shareholders released yesterday. The two-sentence filing said only that InfoUSA received a letter last week "informing the Company that the SEC is conducting an informal investigation . . . and is requesting the...
