(Tea Party PAC) – It seems that one of the hallmarks of corrupt politicians, particularly those of the progressive bent, is that of nepotism, using the power they’ve been entrusted with to do favors for family members, especially their children, allowing them to get cushy jobs that they haven’t earned yet.
We’ve already seen this several times over with Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, but it seems that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is also involved in this kind of activity.
In fact, it seems that as soon as Pelosi took over as Speaker, her son, Paul Pelosi Jr., landed a pretty sweet high paying gig with InfoUSA, despite the fact he has no experience.
Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:
Paul Pelosi Jr. – like Hunter Biden, was given no-show jobs for which he wasn’t qualified in an effort to buy influence with his politician parent.
Nancy Pelosi’s son Paul is also on the board of an energy company.
Paul Pelosi Jr. also traveled to Ukraine for his work.
AND — Better Yet — Speaker Nancy Pelosi even appears in the company’s video ad!
According to Patrick Howley at National File Speaker Pelosi’s son Paul Jr. was an executive at Viscoil.
Paul Jr. traveled to Ukraine in 2017.
BOOM: Nancy Pelosi’s son Paul Pelosi Jr. (who went to Ukraine in 2017) was a board member of Viscoil and executive at its related company NRGLab, which DID ENERGY Business in UKRAINE!
And Nancy Pelosi appeared in a promotional video for the company!

Shortly after his mother Nancy Pelosi became the first woman speaker, Paul Pelosi Jr., was hired by InfoUSA for $180,000 a year as its vice president for Strategic Planning in 2007.
Pelosi 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, Paul Pelosi did not report to work at the company’s headquarters in Omaha.
It must be nice being the spawn of a powerful Democrat politician.
Newsmax reported on Paul Pelosi’s shady dealings in 2007:
The firm InfoUSA, headed by major Clinton backer Vinod Gupta, has placed Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr., on its payroll – even though he has no experience in the company’s main business activities, NewsMax has learned.
As NewsMax previously reported, InfoUSA repeatedly rented marketing databases to unscrupulous persons who used the information to defraud the unsuspecting elderly, investigators found.
The company is also under fire in a shareholder lawsuit which alleges that Gupta is appropriating company funds for personal use and his political pet projects.
Shareholder critics are furious that Gupta had InfoUsa pay former President Bill Clinton $2.1 million in “consulting fees” since he left the White House, with another $1.2 million promised.
Pelosi’s son Paul acknowledged he has also been taking trips on corporate jets provided by Info USA.
Just four weeks after Nancy Pelosi became speaker of the House this past January, Gupta and InfoUSA hired her son as a senior vice president. He told NewsMax InfoUsa pays him $180,000 a year.
Even though his job with InfoUSA is considered full-time, Paul Pelosi continues another full-time job, as a home loan officer at Countrywide Home Loans, part of Countrywide Financial, in San Mateo, a suburb of San Francisco.
While InfoUSA is based in Omaha, Pelosi said he reports to a small InfoUSA office in San Mateo.
In two interviews, Paul Pelosi confirmed that Gupta hired him as senior vice president for strategic development starting Feb. 1, just after Pelosi’s mother took the gavel as speaker on Jan. 4. He said his mother is aware of his new job.
A person familiar with the arrangement says Gupta treats Pelosi as a “trophy” and has the Speaker’s son accompany him at high profile meetings around the country.
Pelosi denied the suggestion he is being used because of his family ties.
“I don’t think that’s really what happens,” he said.
Yes, Paul, that is precisely what happened.
This is the sort of thing that needs to be stopped in this country. Being a public servant, someone chosen by voters to represent their best interests in Congress, should not be a lucrative career path, nor should it be a way for people to abuse this power in order to help their deadbeat kids.
If this sort of thing isn’t removed from American politics, it will forever stain what we say we believe in, which is that all men are created equal and that equality of opportunity is the bedrock of our belief system.
