From NBC's Abby Livingston
Asked about the Jena Six case today on his way into a San Antonio fundraiser, Thompson said, "I don't know anything about it."
Also, Thompson revealed that he is a descendant of Davy Crockett's, the most famous defender of the Alamo, the city's most famous landmark. "I'm just kind of following the path of my ancestor, Davy Crockett from Lawrence County, Tennessee," Thompson said. "I hope I don't have to stay forever like he did, but I'm sure enjoying the time I got here. "
Apparently in June, Thompson confused Daniel Boone for Davy Crockett on his Web site.
