Journal Sentinel: Thompson To Amend His Financial Disclosure Report

On February 9, 2012, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported:

Former governor Tommy Thompson, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, will amend his recently filed Senate financial disclosure report to correct what his campaign described as minor clerical errors.

The corrections stem from information Thompson included on his federal financial disclosure form as part of his candidacy for the U.S. Senate that was not part of the federal financial disclosure form he filed in 2007 during his relatively brief run for president.

Documents obtained by the Journal Sentinel from American Bridge 21st Century, a self-described progressive research and communications organization, and independently verified by the Journal Sentinel show that Thompson listed eight different companies or groups on his 2012 form but did not list them on his 2007 form even though his affiliation with the groups fell under the required reporting period.
