A new video highlights the fact that “Despite already declaring himself a candidate for Wisconsin’s open Senate seat, former Gov. Tommy Thompson has refused to disclose his business interests and lobbying firm clients to the state’s voters.”

We took Thompson to task in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for just this reason:

Thompson hasn’t had to disclose his financial interests yet in federal candidate filings.

But groups like the liberal One Wisconsin Now were calling for him to do that Monday.

Thompson “owes the people a full list of which interests he’ll still be doing business with during his campaign and which ones he’ll be accepting contributions from for the work he’s done. The public deserves to know if his upcoming comprehensive campaign proposals would help these groups,” said Scot Ross, executive director of One Wisconsin.
