Clinton Tax Returns and InfoUSA

I wondered why the holdup over the Clintons' release of tax returns. Partially because of much more than a cozy relationship with InfoUSA, one of the world's largest compilers of consumer information? Maybe. The company was accused of selling the information of the elderly, including those with Alzheimer's, those with gambling problems, and those who'd demonstrated a desire to make money fast. Their bank accounts were quickly emptied, with a little help from Wachovia.

I realize that any of us could easily get entwined with a wicked company, especially when our loose millions are lying around, longing to multiply. I'm not without sympathy.

There's a related labyrinthine story here of Clintonian greed and shady dealings, also.
