Tommy Thompson Apologizes For Campaign’s Gay-Baiting ‘Mistake’


Former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson (R) has apologized for the gay-baiting email and tweets sent by his campaign spokesperson sent out to demonize senate opponent Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D). Explaining that he was “very upset” when he heard what Brian Nemoir had distributed to conservative bloggers, Thompson said, “I thought it was a mistake, I’m sorry, and he’s apologized, I believe. He shouldn’t have done it.” Nemoir will remain on the campaign, but no longer serve as a spokesperson for it.
