Hi Gene,

Mr. Thompson has Dr. Paul's endorsement. You are welcome to report that in any annoucement you see fit. That is all we do of non-Federal candidates.


["Gene" is Gene Cisewski, a campaign manager for the Ed Thompson campaign. I have confirmed this email with Gene and Ed Thompson.]

Ed Thompson is one of the top pro-liberty candidates in the United States! Ed has twice been elected mayor of Tomah, Wisconsin, both times winning in landslides (2000 & 2008). Ed was also elected to the Tomah City Council in 2005 even though he wasn't running for the office. That's amazing! People wrote Ed in anyway and he got over 90% of the vote! Most famously, Ed raised over $500,000 in 2002 as a third party (Libertarian) candidate for governor of Wisconsin and got over 10% of the vote! That's impressive! And post-election polls showed Ed was more popular than democrat Jim Doyle (who won the election), but people didn't vote for Ed because they didn't think a third party candidate could win. Ed's campaign manager from 2002 now works as a legislative staffer for Ron Paul in Washington.

Now Ed is running for State Senate as a Ron Paul Republican! Ron Paul endorsed Ed Thompson even though the Campaign for Liberty does not normally endorse state candidates. Ed can win. Ed out fund-raised his big-government opponent this year by 2 to 1 and rumor has it, Ed leads in the polls. But big time democrat money is flowing into the district. Ed is bracing for a multi-thousands-of-dollars deluge of bogus, negative ads; so Ed needs YOUR help!

Ed's website is here: http://edthompson.com/

I'm a friend of Ed's from Wisconsin. Ed is an awesome dude and his favorite president is Andrew Jackson. Ed sticks up for state's rights & powers. Ed defends gun rights. Ed is frugal. Ed's uncontested primary is in September and the real deal is in November. Ed faces a vulnerable one-term incumbent. Now is the time to strike while the iron is hot. Ed Thompson rocks! Google Ed Thompson! Please support Ed Thompson now!

state senator plagirarizing husband's work

state senator plagirarizing husband's work

Sen. Kathleen Vinehout, D-Alma, faces Republican Ed Thompson, former Gov. Tommy Thompson's brother, in the November election. Vinehout's husband, Douglas Kane, was a consultant for former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

The Republican Party says three essays Vinehout wrote about corporate taxes over the last three years lift passages nearly verbatim from her husband's columns. The GOP says the moves amount to plagiarism and call her credibility into question.

Neither Vinehout nor Kane immediately returned a message left with Vinehout's campaign.

Ed Thompson Talks about Ron Paul

This is part 2 of an interview with Libertarian Alternative, where Ed talks about Ron Paul:

I Bought the Video

I bought the documentary, A Remarkable Man, and showed it to my Republican and Democrat relatives (I'm a Libertarian). They all loved it.

In fact, before FOR LIBERTY, A REMARKABLE MAN was the best documentary on libertarian politics I had ever seen.

Glad you liked the movie.

Glad you liked the movie. I'm in it and helped make it.

Tommy's brother

Tommy is the political black sheep in that family. Ed has been consistently libertarian.

Ed is a small town busisnessman owning the Tee Pee Supper Club there. "The TeePee is still Tomah's "gathering" place...
The TeePee is also host to the annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner, offering free dinners in-house, along with home deliveries to shut-ins."

Ed has a lot of connections and ties to the real world and is not a lawyer. As of 7/21, Senator Vinehout had a $60,000 to $43,000 campaign funding advantage. Best wishes to Ed.

Another great candidate.

Hopefully Ed will pull it off. He seems like another true patriot.

Go Ed, Go!
