Tommy Thompson's Troubles

The Journal Sentinel's Cary Spivak peruses the records and finds that businesses associated with GOP Senate candidate Tommy Thompson have had their share of troubles:

A review of filings with federal regulators, court documents and media reports shows that a handful of the companies have been involved in several controversies.

Thompson, a former Republican governor, is running for the U.S. Senate in the November election.

"Either he has really bad luck choosing companies . . . or he is one of the directors on company boards who is not exercising sufficient oversight," said Paul Hodgson, chief research analyst at GMI Ratings, a rating agency that this year gave failing marks to three of the six public companies whose boards Thompson sits on.
