Remember the story that appeared in the Los Angeles Times about how Thompson once worked for a pro-abortion group? Remember how most of the Thompsonites tried to discredit the paper by saying it lacked evidence? Well, now there is a new development, one that proves that Thompson did, indeed, do work for the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association. The New York Times has obtained records from Thompson’s former employer that prove that he did lobbying and consulting work for the organization in the early and mid 1990s.
Normally I would not think this is an issue, considering the relatively little amount of work and how long ago it was, but the fact is Thompson LIED. He denied the accusations, and that is unacceptable. It is one thing to be pro-choice, or to be a convert on the issue, it is entirely another to attempt to cover up parts of your record in an attempt to mislead people. Even if you disagree with a persons abortion stance, at least honesty is respectable. I’m dropping Thompson as my pick for VP, and now hoping that he does us all a favor and stays away from the race.
