This is pretty horrible.Via the Columbia Free Times,

A video posted online that shows a former union leader in South Carolina smashing a piñata effigy of Gov. Nikki Haley has riled the national office of the AFL-CIO, which wants it taken down.

Pro-union sources in South Carolina say they aren’t worried about the video.

“[Haley] has been whacking at us since she realized how much money the business PACs can contribute in South Carolina,” DeWitt tells Free Times. “We felt justified in taking a whack back.”
