Fired From Paving Company After Describing Palin Brawl On TV
Eric Thompson is now seeking work by posting a YouTube video.
He said he hopes his video will “get the word out that the Palins do have a lot of political power and can get you fired for telling the truth.”
Thompson said he has no ill will toward the owners of McKenna Bros. Paving, whom he said fired him for giving his account of the brawl.
In the video, Thompson asks for donations to his GoFundMe site and the public’s help in finding work. “Within an hour of the airing of my interview on ‘Good Morning America,’ I was fired from my job for telling the truth about the Palin brawl,” Thompson says, addressing the camera.
The video pans to a shot of Thompson holding a cardboard sign reading “Won’t Work 4 Palin!” while standing on an Anchorage street.
