GOP Presidential Candidate: Making Money Part of "Jewish Tradition"

Republican presidential candidate Tommy Thompson (a former three-term Governor of Wisconsin, and a cabinet secretary in the Bush Administration) said the following at a Reform Jewish conference: "I'm in the private sector and for the first time in my life I'm earning money. You know that's sort of part of the Jewish tradition and I do not find anything wrong with that."

later spoke at the NAACP and commented that he has been working on his basketball skills as part of his outreach to the African-American community.
