As police continue investigations into a fight that broke out Saturday at a South Anchorage home, more details have emerged from a man who said he witnessed the brawl. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who some say was involved, remains silent on the issue.

Eric Thompson spoke with ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday. He was among the 70 guests at the birthday party, he said, where he watched the fight unfold.

After the interview, a report surfaced that Thompson, an employee of McKenna Bros. Paving, had been fired for speaking to the media. The party had been held in part for company owners Marc and Matthew McKenna, party guest Charles Fryer said Thursday.

Wisconsin photo-ID law gets appeals court blessing

Scott WalkerA federal appeals court on Friday gave Wisconsin the green light to implement its controversial photo ID law for this year's elections.

The order from a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, delivered just hours after oral arguments in the case, brought widespread criticism from voting rights groups that say the law will reduce turnout among poor and minority voters.

The panel, comprised of judges named by Republican presidents, didn't issue its decision on the state's appeal of a district judge's ruling that struck down the law. But it said the state could impose the new requirement in the meantime.

Campaigners: Obama immigration reform delay 'a slap to face' of Latinos

Immigration reform delayedPresident Barack Obama will delay his long-promised executive action on immigration until after the November midterm elections, White House officials said on Saturday in remarks to the press that blamed “Republicans’ extreme politicisation of this issue”.

The president subsequently gave an interview to NBC, scheduled for broadcast on Sunday morning, in which he said election-year politics were “not the reason” for his decision. Instead, Obama said the summer arrival across the border with Mexico of thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America had prompted a change in the public’s outlook on the issue, and thus in his policy.

Bush-Era Wiretapping Memos Released

Bush era memosThe Justice Department released two decade-old memos Friday night, offering the fullest public airing to date of the Bush administration’s legal justification for the warrantless wiretapping of Americans’ phone calls and e-mails — a program that began in secret after the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The broad outlines of the argument — that the president has inherent constitutional power to monitor Americans’ communications without a warrant in a time of war — were known, but the sweep of the reasoning becomes even clearer in the memos written by then-Assistant Attorney General Jack Goldsmith, who was head of President George W. Bush’s Office of Legal Counsel.

Mitch McConnell's campaign manager, Jesse Benton, resigns

jesse BentonSenate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign manager, Jesse Benton, announced his resignation late Friday, citing potential distractions over renewed attention to a scandal from the Iowa 2012 caucuses.

A longtime associate of Ron Paul and his son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Benton was the surprise choice to run the McConnell campaign in Sept. 2012 — even before the current election cycle began. Benton’s departure comes days after a former Iowa GOP state lawmaker pleaded guilty to charges of accepting money to change his endorsement in 2012 from Michele Bachmann to Ron Paul. Benton was the chairman of Paul’s 2012 campaign and has been mentioned in documents surrounding the case. He has not been accused of wrongdoing in the case.

GOP poll of women: Party 'stuck in past'

GOP study on women's supportA detailed report commissioned by two major Republican groups — including one backed by Karl Rove — paints a dismal picture for Republicans, concluding female voters view the party as “intolerant,” “lacking in compassion” and “stuck in the past.”

Women are “barely receptive” to Republicans’ policies, and the party does “especially poorly” with women in the Northeast and Midwest, according to an internal Crossroads GPS and American Action Network report obtained by POLITICO. It was presented to a small number of senior aides this month on Capitol Hill, according to multiple sources.
