Further Chronicles of the Manliest Man EVAH!!!

It looks as if Fred "Mr. GOP" Thompson was a lobbyist for an abortion rights group in the early 1990s:
Fred D. Thompson, who is campaigning for president as an antiabortion Republican, accepted an assignment from a family-planning group to lobby the first Bush White House to ease a controversial abortion restriction, according to a 1991 document and several people familiar with the matter.

A spokesman for the former Tennessee senator denied that Thompson did the lobbying work. But the minutes of a 1991 board meeting of the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Assn. say that the group hired Thompson that year.

I would like to think that this would destroy Thompson's chances in 2008. However, I just know that Chris Matthews will turn this story into how manly Thompson is for supporting abortion rights.
