CNN Wrap-up: Lying Pro Choice Fred Thompson (Video)

CNN's Situation Room documents Flip-flopper Fred Thompson's Lies about his Pro Choice Past -- with special attention to Fred Thompson's memory lapse about his role as lobbyist for a Pro Choice Group:

Beset by his past positions on abortion, former Senator Fred Thompson is in hot water with some social conservatives, a constituency whose support he will need if he is going to run for President in 2008 as many expect. . .

Thompson's Spokesmen Mark Corallo told CNN, "Fred Thompson has no recollection of doing any work on behalf of this group. He may have been consulted by one of the firm's partners who represented this group in 1991."

But according to Thompson's old law partner, former Democratic Congressman Michael Barnes, Thompson was set up to work with the organization specifically. "The only person who worked on it was Fred," he says.
