Thomson’s father is former Minnesota Democratic state Rep. John Thompson. The elder Thompson lost to his primary opponent Liz Lee by nearly 78 points last August after allegations surfaced that he had engaged in years of pattern domestic violence. KMSP-TV reported the former lawmaker was accused of punching and choking numerous women from 2003 to 2009. In some instances, the alleged attacks occurred in the presence of children. Per KMSP, Thompson ran from police following one such instance of domestic abuse. In 2009, he was accused of exposing his genitals to two young children during an altercation with a girlfriend. He allegedly told the children, “I’m the man, you can all s*** my d***.” In one case, Thompson claimed he was being racially profiled by police following an arrest. Prior to the allegations becoming public, Thompson made headlines in Minnesota in 2020 during the George Floyd riots and protests for his Black Lives Matter activism.
