20. Enjoy all that spam, wonderful spam, spam, spam

InfoUSA is a huge data collection company that compiles all kinds of databases of information on people and sells the data to other corporations and governments. In fact, Federal agencies often turn to commercial databases when Federal law prevents them from keeping certain types of information in their own files.

InfoUSA can then cross-reference many databases to create highly targeted lists, such as Lexus drivers who contributed to Clinton.

So if you contributed to Clinton's campaign, expect a lot more commercial spam and junk mail. Click here if you want to instantly enlarge part of your anatomy.

I have only heard of campaign mailing lists being borrowed by other campaigns. For example, one person said Kerry apparently lent his donor list to Obama.
