Thompson Campaign Neglects to Conduct Background Checks
November 6, 2007
One of Fred Thompson’s 2008 campaign co-chair’s was convicted in 1979 for selling 11 pounds of marijuana and entered a no contest plea in 1983 for cocaine trafficking and conspiracy. Does this constitute as a reason not to hire him? Unfortunately, the republican presidential candidate didn’t have a chance to decide. His campaign committee neglected to perform a background check.
