HSUS in 2009 and probably previous years (haven’t checked) raised almost 50Mil by a “Fundraiser” using National Outdoor Sports Advertising Inc. Revenue to this company was 2.2 Million. National Outdoor Sports is @ 5151 Wisconsin Ave Washington DC and 1200 Potomac St NW Washington DC. Their webpage is http://www.mdginc.org This takes you to the website of Market Development Group Inc. AKA List America 5151 Wisconsin Ave Washington DC. You can find in their customers, HSUS with a huge ad. Market Development Group is owned by Taylor Nelson Sofres, a UK based market research conglomerate. In 2008, Taylor Nelson Sofres (TNS) was acquired by WPP and included it in the Kantar Group portfolio.
Who else is at this address of 5151 Wisconsin Ave Washington DC you ask? Thanks for asking. WTTG Fox station. On January 30, 2009, starting with its 6 p.m. newscast, WTTG became the third station in DC (behind CBS affiliate WUSA and ABC affiliate WJLA.) Why is that significate you ask? Wayne Pacelle was previously married to singer Kirsten Rosenberg; he is currently engaged to TV journalist Lisa Fletcherof WJLA-TVin Washington, D.C.
I know this gets boring but keep going, it gets good. While HSUS claims National Outdoor as a fundraiser, HSI claims them as an independent contractor.
The Share Group! This one gets complicated if you thought the National Outdoor Sports was. The Share group 73 Chapel St. Newton MA ph 617-629-4500 and 1717 K st NW Washington DC 202-223-3444.

Shareco.us web registration at “who is” shows PDR II 79 Chapel St. Newton MA (next door to Share group in Newton MA) as their contact. I checked PDR II and came up with PDR II registered as a charitable org in Tennessee??!!! PDR II is owned by Geoffery Loree of the Gloree Group.

Complaints about phone number 617-467-3600 on spokeo is a telemarketing compaint list a mile long. Keep in mind that HSUS listed the share group inc. as an Independent contractor for 2009 and spent 1.8 million on telemarketing with this company. The share group is AKA Direct Advantage Marketing AKA Outreach Associates. That was just recently bought out by Geoffrey Loree of the Gloree group. Self Made billionaire Alec Glore owns the Gloree Group.
Quadriga Art is also listed as an Independent Contractor for HSUS on the same 2009 return. HSUS spent 8.2 Million at Quadriga Art 30 E 33rd St. New York NY and 1717 K ST. NW Washington DC. Certain links for them go straight to the Share Group. Loopnet property records show Quadriga at 30 E 33rd st listed under business type “greeting cards.”
I checked Share Group on Spoke.com. There are listing of people associated with this company. One person listed was Charles Major of Navigational Finance Group. Let’s Dig! 🙂 Navigation Financial Group 15770 Dallas Parkway Dallas TX 214-217-5800 has a website listing of http://www.sharefinancial.com Go there and it’s Share Financial 15770 Dallas Parkway Dallas Tx ph 972-450-6305 and 972-233-0120. Their logo “Financing Churches and non-profits since 1970” If you print out their pages, at the top of the page it reads “Church Loans and Financing for Church Construction and Church Renovation”.
How else is Share Group involved? Share Group also has an address of 99 Dover St. somerville MA per spoke.com. The current tenant is Candlewick Press Inc., a Corp of Church of Christ Latter Day Saints (Mormon Church.)
Candlewick Press is owned by Pearson Publishing which owns many, and I mean many, other publishing houses including the Penguin Group. If you go to the Penguin Group’s website to lookup Candlewick Press, it will tell you that they do not do imprint of Candlewick Press. However, if you check out the The Holly Joliday – Paperback, the publisher is Penguin/Candlewick Press. Candlewick Press books are distributed in the U.S. by Random House Inc. Pearson Publishing owns Penguin Group and Random House.
The very slimy part of this story? Pearson Publishing is the publisher of School TEXTBOOKS. “Pearson School was created when the School businesses from Pearson International and Pearson North America were merged in 2013. They provide textbooks and digital technologies to teachers and students across school ages. Pearson’s school brands include Bug Club, Edexcel, Fronter, GradPoint, Power School and SuccessNet.”

ADE Technologies- Inc. telephone number is
October, 2000:”When AFL-CIO secretary-treasurer Richard Trumka and AFSCME president Gerald McEntee addressed this year’s Democratic convention, journalists could only wonder at its meaning. Both union officials played major roles in the Teamsters embezzlement and money-laundering scandal that led to the conviction of seven persons and the removal of then-Teamsters president Ron Carey. In 1996, almost $1 million in Teamsters union funds that was partially laundered through the Democratic Party and other Clinton re-election groups helped re-elect Carey. During the convention, Newsweek reported that a communications company called the Share Group, formerly headed by Michael Ansara, one of the small fry convicted in the Teamsters probe, had been paid $1 million for campaign work for Vice President Al Gore, the DNC, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Ansara transferred 59 percent of the company to his wife before his guilty plea, but he remains a contract employee and keeps an office there. Only after the Newsweek story broke did the Gore campaign terminate the firm’s contract.”
