In an interview with The Capital Times, Thompson said the contract awarded to Logistics Health, Inc. in September was done properly and had nothing to do with the La Crosse-based firm hiring Dr. William Winkenwerder, former assistant secretary of defense for health affairs. Winkenwerder was hired as a director and consultant for Logistics Health on June 1, three months after he left his Pentagon post.
"There was no conflict of interest," Thompson said. "Logistics Health Inc. is so ethical it's beyond the pale."
